4.24/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A- pours clear and bright golden color with an enormous creamy and foamy white head that retains long after the pour, leaving behind thick patches of lace

S- lots of fruity notes with a bit of mango and papaya, some citrus hop with lemon zest, a bit of crackery malt and hemp

T- tropical fruity notes lead to citrus and pine resin, hop profile is huge mid-palate with sweet mango and grassy hop, long fruity citrus linger on the palate with just enough malt to contain the huge hops

M- medium body with lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel leads to a clean, crisp and refreshing mouthfeel

O- loaded with hops and high ABV, but super crisp and refreshing with high drinkability. The hop punch of a DIPA with the crispness of a pilsner.

Bottled 3/28/13. Less than 2 weeks old. Hooray local!

A: A very clear golden/amber-ish. Enormous fluffy white head. Head fades stupidly slow with a huge island persisting. Strong fluffy lacing from top of the glass to the bottom.

S: Lots of citrus. Oranges, mangoes, grapefruit. Just a hint of pine. Surprisingly mellow if I'm honest, not a huge hop bomb in the nose. Some sweet caramel backs it up.

T: Hops are stronger here. Again, lots of citrus. Grapefruit is prominent with some sweeter orange backing it up. A little pine. Hint of sweet malt but it passes pretty quickly. Big wave of bitterness along with a chunk of pine in the finish. Some resinous hops to boot. Long, lingering drying and bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied, very smooth. A little drying from all the hops in the finish.

O: Another awesome beer from Jack's Abby. Not quite Kiwi Rising status, but an interesting variation that's still quite good. This one is more focused on the citrus and pine than the tropical fruit. Delicious and ultra smooth - wonderfully drinkable.
