3.78/5 rDev -11.5%
Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The bottling date, “02/06/13,” is printed on the back label.
Appearance: Straight pour into a pint glass. The color is gold that is leaning amber. A finger and a half of off-white head left a skim of foam, a ring around the edge, and trails of foam along the side.
Smell: Pretty tame, especially since “intense hop aroma” is used on the beer’s webpage. The grapefruit and pine resin are present and pretty sharp, but they are not overpowering and intense; I need to put my nose right up to the glass to sense them. Other aromas are pale malts, bready wheat, floral hops, and a little toffee.
Taste: This one is hard to pin down. The bitterness is unmistakable and dominant; the floral hops really excite the taste buds. A blend of floral hops, grapefruit, pine resin, and pale malts is noticeable, but not enough to provide balance. Hints of alcohol emerge, but they are fleeting.
Drinkability: “Enormous” and “intense” are not the right words for this beer. It offers a nice, gritty bitterness, but the flavor and aroma are not as pronounced as I thought they would be.
