4.22/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pour: Hazy golden-orange in color. Two fingers of white head with average retention and some streaks of lacing.
Smell: Primarily citrus notes consisting of grapefruit, orange peel, and a touch of lemon. Understated malt backbone and a touch of pine.
Taste: Citrus from front to back. Lemon twang up front with an orange peel and grapefruit finish. Biscuity malt character supports everything and ties everything together. Bitterness in the back has a spicy element to it. Leaves a lingering sweet nectar taste up front and dry bitterness in the back. Interesting and good.
Mouthfeel: Dry and medium bodied. Low to medium carbonation. A bit of a hop oil coating is left on the mouth.
Drinkability/Overall: Lots to like here. Easy drinking and not overly filling, the alcohol is well disguised. Good flavors and I was looking forward to each sip. Well balanced and not overly filling.
Final Notes: Hop-heads will appreciate this one, along with people who love citrus. Tangy, spicy, and with an understated malty character, pair this one with some serious spicy food. Recommended.
