3.68/5 rDev +7.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Cloudy golden color with bits floating around. Had to double check the label to see if this was a non-filtered beer. It doesn't specify so I'm a little confused. Head is white and foamy. Not the best head retention. Decent lacing.
Aroma: Smells of sweet complex hops. Very subtle spice aroma.
Taste: Bitterness is upfront. Citrusy with a grapefruit flavor on the back of the tongue.
Mouthfeel: I'd lay off the carbonation with this beer. Felt it was overcarbonated for this style. I'd love to try this on cast sometime.
Serving type: bottle

(on tap at Pistola's - served in a shaker pint)
A: fairly cloudy with dry hop residue... sun-baked golden grass color... lazy stand of head, falls flat... looks messy, raw, amateur
S: a bit flat - old dry malt, farmyard grass... dried flowers, dried citrus peel hop aromas peeking through
T: grassy-sepal, green tea-like hop bitterness - unmistakable dry hop source... hop flavors are pretty straight-up wildflower with a tinge of citrus... they weren't lying, the malt is full, bread loafy, and bold - the bitterness cuts through over it, but still some sloppy balance is maintained
M: nearly medium-bodied, added roundness from hop polyphenols, etc... tannic bitterness shocks the tongue a bit... protein-grainy flow
O: kinda like a pale ale done like a rustic, homespun saison - reminds me of Hof Ten Dormaal's Blond that I had recently, just with slightly different yeast character and more biting hop bitterness
Serving type: on-tap
