3.08/5  rDev -14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, medium carbonation, clear, golden in color

Smell: citrus hops and slight malt presence

Taste: citrus hops, small pine hops, some soapiness, and caramel malt

Mouthfeel: medium/light bodied, medium carbonation, slightly bitter with a very bitter lingering aftertaste

Drinkability: I like the body of this beer, but what kills it for me is a medicinal/bitter alcohol aftertaste that lingers in my mouth. This is very dry and the hops are not overboard. I do like the brewery but I am not likely to get this one again.
