4.72/5 rDev +11.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours out a nice clear reddish amber with two fingers of white/off white suds. Looks really nice in the tulip glass. Nice lacing too.
Smell is yeasty and fruity. Grapefruit hints with tangerine peel.
Lemony freshness. This is a great smelling beer.
Taste is citrus and sweet malt with an alcohol overtone. Caramel and alcohol combine to make the first flavor sweet and warm then the hops kick in and bring a wonderfull bitterness that stays on the tounge. I like this one a lot. Too bad it has to come from California in a Fed Ex box.
Mouthfeel is excellent. Great carbonation and the resin film stays with the tounge. Mellow excitedness.
Drinkability would be high if I could get this brew everyday. Also the 8.8%abv could be a small deterent.

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.
