4.03/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into my Terrapin pint glass.
Appearance: A bright, hazy golden. About a one-finger white head at first, but it dissipates pretty fast. Minimal lacing. If the head/lacing were more prominent, it would push this up to a 5; as it is, that rich, hazy golden color is really, really nice.
Smell: Floral and hoppy! That's the point, ain't it?
Taste: See 'Smell'. Seriously. What's nice about this is, it's got that strong hop flavor, but not much bitterness. I love bitter beer, mind you, but what I love even more is the pure, unadulterated flavor of the hop. (For another good, and not as strong, example of these, check out Sam Adams's Noble Pils.) This beer showcases that beautifully.
Mouthfeel: Just a tad bit watery, but some carbonation balances that out.
Drinkability: Of course it's drinkable! I'm always up for anything that tastes like this, the more the merrier!
Victory wins again!
