look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
appearance is a nice caramel color, with a tight light-hay coloured head that knows how to hang out for a while.
smells is serious resiny hop oil glands. wow. its' like i'm smelling concentrated hop extract or something.
taste is not surprising, since it's ungodly hoppy. wow. at first i was like, wow, this is a really raw hoppiness, and here comes the bitteness. on teh finish though, there was just a gentle descent from hop-o-rama to a smooth aftertaste. wow. seriously awesome.
mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, just right body. filling but not thick and viscous. drinkability is really high, i jsut keep wanting another big ol' gulp of this stuff. good thing they come in big bottles!
this is excellent beer, go and get some before it's all gone!

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.
