4.13/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pour: Golden yellow in color with a slight haze. Two fingers of frothy white head that had excellent retention and left all sorts of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Predominantly grapefruit hop aromas on this one, supported by a pale malt sweetness. Hints of tart fruit as well.
Taste: Things kick off with a tart fruity taste (not sure exactly what it is - green apple maybe?) supported by a sweet pale malt backbone. Biscuity middle and finishes up with a moderate grapefruit and pine hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium with medium carbonation. An apparent smoothness, and a dry finish.
Drinkability/Overall: Quite sessionable but the alcohol sneaks up on you. Good flavors, not filling, and refreshing. Great summer brew.
Final Notes: This is a great beer, and easily one of the best summer seasonals I've had. Bordering on IPA territory but retains the refreshment and lighter character of the APA style. Good utility beer.
Serving type: bottle
