4.14/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Orange gold body with some bubbles. Fluffy head settled to thin layer which left some really wonderful lacing.
S - Soft but thick sweetness, very much like strawberries and cream oatmeal or cereal. Light spice as well.
T - Some nice floral flavors here, and also a very fresh citrus flavor as well, sweet grapefruit and clementine orange. Maltyness gives just enough definition to the body to smoothly tie it all together. Definitely tastes fresh and authentic, nothing forced. Gives the nose a lot to think about!
M - Fairly steep bitterness throughout the mouth giving that citrusy rind sensation. Not quite as potent as I was expecting, as it still goes down pretty easy. That bitterness sure isn't going anywhere soon though, so hop-haters beware!
O - This is a good beer. Really nice floral and fruit flavors, just missing some of the wow factor I was hoping for given the name. Having said that, this might have the most appealing floral flavor I've experienced.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: deep amber with orange highlights in a nonic pint; off white foma head that persisted and laced nicely.

S: I get a lot of the malt, and the hops are a nice mesh of pine and citrus

T: flavors are of bitter hops, in a resiny pine and citric pith kind of way, the malt is very present but its sweetness is subdued. Drinks fairly clean and finishes crisp and hearty at the same time.

M: light-to-medium, good carbonation, leaves a rich bitter coat - very lively - evaporates

O: a very well-done beer. The malts are in strong competition with the hops, but don't use sweetness to catch your attention. This feels stronger than 6.70 abv.
