4/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Hazy with an apricot hue and a huge foamy head; decent lacing
S: Great hop forward aroma--lots of citrus and floral aromatics--there is a sweet malty undertone but no indication that this is a 9% beer
T: Interesting hop profile: some citrus but also some grassy and herbal notes and then a sweet boozy quality comes through; bitter up front but there is some balance in the finish
F: Medium body; oily and sticky which works well with this beer
O: Pond Hopper is an interesting hop-forward beer; I like it and it warms you up quickly--surprisingly so because the alcohol doesn't seem overwhelmingly present; but it has a somewhat odd hop profile but it does come together as a collaboration beer should (and often does not)
Serving type: bottle
