3.54/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a dimpled pint mug.
Pours a cloudy light orange colour with a small white head.
Smells pretty hoppy - herbal and fruity.
Tastes quite hop forward - more of those herbal and fruity flavours, with quite a clean, crips malty finish.
Overall quite a nice beer, not as good as #2 though.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2013. Purchased a while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described as a heavily-hopped pale ale with low bitterness.
Poured into a straight pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A hazy golden-amber hue with fine sediment and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of fruity hops with notes of grapefruit, lemon/lime, orange peel, white grape, mild tropical fruit and grass/hay. Underpinned by subtle caramel malt and earthy yeast - very nice.
Tastes of fruity aromatic hops with a dry finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape, grass/hay, faint tropical fruit, caramel malt, earthy yeast and subtle stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a restrained bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and very dry - hop oils tantalise the tongue. Pleasant carbonation and good body for the strength. Rather astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of fruity aromatic hops, stewed leaves and earthy yeast.
Tasty - another hop-forward brew from Arbor. Looks nice, with an aroma and flavour dominated by fruity hop notes and earthy yeast. Decent body; carbonation could be a tad more lively. A beer for hop-lovers - if this is you then don't pass it over.
