4.5/5 rDev +9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Deep amber color with a coppery hue. Medium creamy head holds nicely and reduces leaving tons of sticky lacing along the sides. Aroma is intense with a resiny piney hoppiness. Some sweeter fruity flavors. But the grapefruit and pine dominate and almost burn when I smell too closely. Nice. Taste is just as good but smoother than I expected. Lots of hoppy flavor but bitterness is held in check by a firm malt foundation. The malts a bit sweet which counters nicely with the acidity and almost tea-like herbal qualitites of the hops. Very resiny in the back with a piney finish. Very smooth and some cream elements give this beer great drinkability, esp. considering the abv and the style. I love the can too. This brewery has continued to impress.
