3.69/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle poured into a Pilsner glass.
Pale gold with 1/2 finger of head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with medium-light carbonation.
Grapefruit, lemon zest, Fruity Pebbles, perfumey florals, and candy sugar.
Spicy, earthy, herbaceous hoppery! Grapefruit, lemon pith, and Fruity Pebbles. Pine needles soaked in sunlight and bright perfumey florals. Candy sugar and light notes of biscuit. Finishes easy with fruity esters and the aforementioned grapefruit / floral combo.
Full bodied, smooth, crisp, oily, and off-dry.
My guess is Columbus and Centennial and I'm a huge fan of Columbus.

2.7/5 rDev -28.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5
Poured with standard vigor into a tulip glass.
A - pours a clear sparkling gold, with little to no head. Carbonation is visible but not abundant.
S - Grassy hops, hints of onion, and not much else. A touch a malt surfaces from the loads of booze that it throws as it warms.
T - More pine and grassy hops, with a nod in the direction of pineapple and mango. Booze is quite apparent as well. Okay, but not great.
M - Tingly carbonation, that doesn't do much for this (IMHO) mediocre beer. It pushes the light hops across your palate, and isn't too soapy, so I guess it has that going for it.
O - I fail to see what the allure of this beer is, other than lack of accessibility. I mean, $22 for a six-pack? REALLY??? The most pedestrian of IPA offerings have more going on than this, at a fraction of the price! If you're a "ticker" as the saying goes, and you can buy a single to try, do so. Don't be suckered in by the "super hopped" claim on the packaging, or the fact that it really IS THIS EXPENSIVE. I just didn't get it.
