3.73/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Quite impressive. Not my style, but for the style it is quite good.
Pours hazy amber with quite a bit of character. Not much head, though, but the miniscule ring of foam actually laces a slight bit.
Tastes are of a nice balance of hop and malt and a bit of sweet. The hop includes a slight pine, but also some more dry less bitter type that I really like. The sweetness is almost of honey, though I'm not quite positive exactly what I'm noticing. And the malt somehow comes through with some richness.
the mouthfeel is nice and creamy, though the pine hop stabs at the middle tounge a bit, making its presence.
then, in the finish, it is like the end of a foamy waterslide - fizzy and quick ending with a quick gulpy splash.
Remaining is the slight clean hop taste with a bit of sweetness which dissipates in a few seconds leaving no bad aftertaste.
This is quite an enjoyable beer, and I'd recommend it to those who like pale ales, IPAs and APA's, but are willing to experiment. I'd also recommend it to people who haven't tried beers outside of the mass produced stuff - this isn't all carried away but still offers the enjoyment of uniqueness.
