09/15/09-

Presentation- 750ml bottle, caged and corked with no freshness info. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance- Medium golden color. Full super white pocky head with some light lace trails remaining.

Smell- A bit of everything. SOme lemon peel, a bit of brett funk, some english style hops and a wee bit of toasted malt.

Taste- Nicely done. Really laid back in the beginning with a mild hoppy burst, some malt backing and some good brett. Towards the end it really turns quite bitter from the hops and the brett subsides leaving a bitter lemony hops flavor.

Mouthfeel- A bit higher carbonation level, but almost about right. Nice lasting flavorful hoppy aftertaste.

Drinkability- Not quite on the level with Hop It, but no far either. Quality BIPA.

look: 2 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Dark amber beer with pretty heavy condensation and a very thick head on the pour. Relatively see through beer. This goes against what the description says.

Smell: Lots of hops were used to brew this beer, it has a moderate floral aroma. Smells great.

Taste: Very hoppy, i do enjoy the taste of this beer except i think its pretty average. Nothing sticks out to me.

Mouthfeel: Light beer with not much condensation makes this very drinkable.

Overall: I could see myself drinking this beer again. I would recommend this, but i would make sure to say it is average at best.
