4.19/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Aroma Coma pours out a brilliant, warm, clear, light copper color. I really can't overstate the attractiveness of the color of this. About 1" of pure white head forms, which has just okay, but very good lacing. A good, moderate amount of carbonation is present. Really the only thing keeping this appearance score from being perfect is the retention could be a bit better.
Smell: A bit of pale and caramel malt is apparent, but really the highlight is a combination of great floral and grassy notes. Resin notes are in the background but definitely there. Not quite as powerful as I was expecting based on the name. Seems nicely balanced, but I was not expecting a nose dominated by florals.
Taste: Good solid pale malt backbone followed by floral hops and a lot of citrus hop flavor. Way more citrus on the palate than on the nose, namely tropical fruit and bitter grapefruit rind. A bit resiny on the finish, and drying.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light-medium with an appropriate amount of carbonation. As I mentioned before, a bit drying. Quite refreshing and easy drinking. Definitely drinks easier than it's 6.7% mark. Overall, I really enjoyed this.... great hop complexity and freshness. Definitely a winner in my book.
