4.05/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A:A very cloudy unfiltered straw color. The slightly yellowish-white head stays up for a few minutes.
S:It truely is like smelling a bag of hallertau hops. It smells great. There is a slight bit of sweetness in the background.
T:It's definitely an "intense hop experience." There is some bitterness but mostly on the back of the palate. I taste much more of the hop resin. I dont precieve much malt flavor in it.
MF:The body feels medium to full. It seems like most of the body is actually coming from the hop resin.
D:I wouldn't be able to drink multiples of these because of how strong the hop flavor. Yet the flavor is great and I would drink more in the future.
