3.9/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark copper color with one finger of head

Aroma: Lots of piney hops over a caramel malt base

Taste: The hop bitterness hits hard and fast with this one, and is slightly resinous. Some nutty malt notes show up in the middle, but are pretty well swamped out on the finish, which is bitter, bordering on harsh. Finish is lingering with a mix of metallic and phenolic notes.

The Rest: Medium bodies, a nice hop assault on the tongue. Balance is a bit off; could use some more sweetness from the malt to balance the hops, but a solid beer all around.

Serving type: bottle

Kind of like The Deer Hunter, Raul took his sweet ass time to try this one. And like said "classic film," it has its moments, is pretty solid down the line, but Raul ain't tripping. Don't get Raulsky wrong, he'd drink Dale's plenty of times over before he'd spend 3 1/2 hours with Al Pachino and the bunch again; but if said playa (Raul) had other, more fruitful options, he'd probably go with them first.

Pours amber with a thick, off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and citrus hops. Taste of citrus and pine with nice malt backbone. Almost an IPA. Mouthfeel is on the thin side with effervescent carbonation. Overall, an outstanding sessionable pale.

Poured from a tall boy can (19.2 fl oz) into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a nice semi-translucent orange with a nice white fluffy head. Smells of citrus and nice grain body, but the citrus hops dominate. Tastes of citrus hops and some earthy tones, slight alcohol taste, but with a great aftertaste and bite. Beer is a bit heavy carbonated but goes down well for light body. Overall a very good beer.
