3.93/5 rDev -12.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: This beer pours a very murky/ cloudy dull orange hue. The bright white head stood up to staggering heights but fell fairly quick leaving behind a nice web-like lace.
Smell: The aromas are like a bunch of sticky sweet pine saplings drizzled in malt syrup. Lots of floral and mild citrus notes as well. Minimal alcohol is noticed, but I can detect some mouthwatering fruits such as grapefruit and nectarines. Very inviting.
Taste: This beer has a good amount " hop slam " qualities thou I believe it may also have some dull qualities. I'm getting some mildly sweet fruits, mild citrus, almost seems like a small IPA with that big beer bang. Not bad by any means just not living up to its name in my opinion. This more " hop balanced " than a hop slam. :Referr : Lagunitas Maximus for " hop slam " aka 75ish ibus!!
Mouthfeel: This is medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Smooth, sticky, and has soft bubbly finish with a nice alcohol kick.
Drinkability: This is definitely a good drinking beer and I believe I could drink this on a regular basis. Only thing I guess im knocking is not commanding it's namesake.
Serving type: bottle
