look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

I feel I will need to explain my ratings, and here it is: this is styled as a Kölsch, but is listed as a dry-hopped Kölsch. As such it is more like an IPL is to a standard lager. This works well for me, but might not work for someone expecting a normal Kölsch. My original flat rating was 4.25, although I thought that slightly high. For pure enjoyment, nose and taste would be rated .5 and .25 higher, respectively.

A: quite cloudy yellow, almost like a hefe. The head is nice, sustains, and clings to the glass as I enjoy it
S: considering the dry-hopping, not a surprise tis is strong; pine dominates the nose, more than even some IPAs I know. Style-wise, not sure tis fits, but I don't think this beer was trying to fit a style
T/M: a crisp and slightly effervescent start, but the piney hops notes come into play early and linger. The end taste is more dry and less refreshing than I personally expect from a Kölsch, but are quite enjoyable.
O: as an IPA fan, this Kölsch worked for me. Give it a try if you are a hops fan and might not otherwise try a "lighter" style.

Serving type: on-tap
