look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Nice golden color, good light tan head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Grapefruit hops right up front, then pine and resin, with a hint of malts

Taste: Grapefruit and resin hops up front and in your face. Pine hops are up next. Decent caramel malt backbone, but it can't stand up to the hops. Good amount of bitterness hits you almost at the end, then there's a nice citrusy finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, good carbonation, little bit of oily-ness from the hops

Overall: Pretty good brew, but I'm glad I picked up a single rather than a full 4 pack. This is something I could probably drink one bottle a year of, but it is a very good and well executed brew. Not sure I would exactly say it wrecks your palate, but it is packed full of hops.
