3.88/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Blind 12oz can (thanks to Onion), split three ways and poured into New Belgium globe glass.

A: Bright, extremely clear pour capped with golden head. Fades very slowly to a ring with sticky lacing.

S: Hops hit hard at first, grassy and pine foremost with a little citrus sweetness as well; all the hops smell a little bit muted, though. Very smooth malt backbone.

T: I'm getting more of a pale ale vibe than an IPA from the flavor profile. Hop flavors are all very well balanced, but I'm not getting them coming on particularly strongly. Mild malt flavors fade to pretty strong bitterness.

M: High carbonation with very crisp mouthfeel.

D: Excellent! Love to drink this one as a lawnmowing beer, just goes down that easy.

Huh, didn't know this did 12oz cans. Pretty sure if I did three or four of these while I mowed the lawn, I'd be redoing my work the next day. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Very enjoyable, glad I got to try it blind.

12oz can poured into a teku

A: Gandhi Bot pours a bright, orange-copperish shade of gold. It's hazy, unfiltered, and really good looking.

S: Crisp aromas of candied citrus, tropical fruits, and pine. Very pleasant-smelling beer.

T: Bitter and malty, but not much of the flavors the nose promised. The beer does deliver a beautiful dry and bitter finish. Little disappointed with the flavor of this one.

M: Probably the highlight of the beer for me: crisp, creamy, and refreshing.

O: Thanks to a great BA for throwing me this as an extra. A good beer I enjoyed quite a bit, but the taste just wasn't there for me. Looks great, smells good, and tastes not bad.
