4.03/5 rDev -10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Honey golden in color. Creamy light head that dissipates quickly. Fine lacy retention around the rim of the glass that continues and hangs on the whole time.
S: Very citrusy. Orange peel, essence of pine and some undertones of grapefruit. Malt profile is also very prevalent.
T: Wonderfully complex hop profile. Pine and citrus notes, intertwined, fall over the tongue, but it does not have a strong tannic bite. The malt body is bready and slightly caramel. Being a strongly hopped beer, the malt profile is "slammed" into submission. Naturally. There seems to be a lingering acidic after taste.
M: Full and round on the palate. It's almost as though the beer bends and falls off the sides of the tongue. It's like chewing on a slab of hops.
D: I thoroughly enjoy this beer. Definitely not a session beer, but an ale I enjoy none the less. This beer would pair well with a properly seasoned piece of meat or cold cut sandwich. Sorry vegetarians. I'm sure pastrami tofu would pair well??
Serving type: on-tap
