look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A- pours an orange amber color with a finger and a half of white head. Solid head retention with lacing.
S- rich hops on the nose with orange and floral notes. Hop oils and and leafy fresh hop characteristics in the middle with a subtle biscuity malt bringing another dimension and balance to the beer.
T- citrusy hop flavor with orange and grapefruit peel hit the palate at first. Spicy white pepper notes with a resiny hop oil hit mid palate with a continued aggressive hop bitterness. Subtle biscuity malt for a touch of balance on the finish with a lingering floral hop flavor in the aftertaste.
MF- slick resiny mouthfeel with a medium body. Average carbonation.
D- great drinkability

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
