4.13/5 rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.
Look - slightly light amber color, with about two fingers worth of off-white colored foam that dissipates slowly. Fairly clear.
Smell - wow, indeed extremely hoppy (smells like Cascade hops, mostly) as the name suggests. Toned down by a hint of something sweet...for some reason grapefruit comes to mind.
Taste and Mouthfeel - Still very hoppy-tasting, but not as bitter as I was expecting. I still taste something sweeter, but still slightly bitter throughout like grapefruit. Bitterness is most intense in the finish, but the aftertaste is mellow. Texture is very well-balanced.
Drinkability - maybe not a favorite of mine because I don't love bitter beers, but still very good in style, complexity, interesting progression. Very good brew!
