3.55/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy light golden amber, surmounted by a massive, dense, somewhat coarse off-white head, which retains quite well. Pillars of fine carbonation drift lazily to the surface. Patchy Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls.
Aroma: Moderate citric notes, of both grapefruit and orange rind suffuse the aroma, although the grapefruit is most prominent. There is a little resinous pine as well. Lightly toasted pale malt struggles to assert itself.
Taste: Opens with a burst of juicy citric hops, with pine, and grapefruit notable, and a little orange rind, as well. AS the taste progresses, some biscuit malt drifts across the taste, subtle against the hop presence. Finishes with a moderate, lingering grapefruit and pine hop flavor.
Mouth feel: Smooth, very soft, full and pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A very nice example, quite drinkable, a bi more of a malt presence would be welcome.
Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off cap, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle
