look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Intro: 12 oz. bottle served in a Bell's 13 oz. tulip stem glass
Appearance: Poured a bright dark golden color with about a two finger off-white head remaining throughout the pour with thin lacing that clung to the glass.
Smell: All I can say is, WOW!! A very unmistakable aroma. A very full, rich bouquet of hops, hops, and more hops, complemented by citrus and honey. I'm a real hop-head and this has an unmistakable aroma unlike any other beer in this family.
Taste: The perfect balance between bitter and sweet, the malt is just enough to balance out the hops. Finishes well with the honey which does a good job of balancing the overall citrus hoppy flavor. Again, a very unique, unmistakable taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation with a taste that lingers. The aftertaste mutes the drink quite well, due to the honey. It's not fruity at all, just hops and a smooth undertone which makes it quite drinkable
Drink: Smooth. Ultra-Smooth. If you're not careful you'll find yourself having put away a six-pack before you know it.
Conclusion: This is one beer that would not fail the blindfold test for either taste or smell. Despite all the hype surrounding this beer, don't be fooled. Don't pass up the chance to try this one, over and over again.
