3.79/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
a: hazy golden yellow with some darker orange notes rising up the sides of the glass. 2 finger marshmallow white head.
s: cascade & columbus hops. pineapple, sweet lemons, light toffee, juicy mango, huge amounts of freshly baked dough
t: taste is much different than the aroma. the hops i'm tasting, which hit you first, are oniony & garlic. dank 'cat piss' like flavors. those fade to some bitter grapefruit, piney bark, and fresh citrus. ends bready & bitter
m: medium with just enough carbonation to pop those amarillo-like flavors
o: don't love it. the flavors taste a bit all over the place in here....something just isn't working with another one of the flavors. i think when you have the garlic-like hop flavors you need to balance it out with something sweet. however here your just hit with bitterness. not enough balance. i will say it is probably a good beer to pair with a salad or sharp cheese
