3.73/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Best by 10.14.11
A: Nice one and a half finger egg white head that recedes super slowly. Lacing right away, hanging around all down the glass until the end. Golden yellow and pretty hazy with lots of floaties.
S: Lots of citrus juice right off the bat as soon as the bottle is opened, primarily grapefruit. Very fruity. Pine follows up with a slight backing from some sweet buttery toasty malts. Hop oil and resin is all over. Smells great.
T: A little sharper here than in the nose. Citrus leads off (though way less than expected from the aromas), but the earthy pine notes take over a little too much in a really aggressive way. Pine and oak. Way more bitter than citrusy. Strong yeast and biscuit malt backbone does well to balance this somewhat. Lots of resin. As it warms the citrusy notes start to come out more and it's a lot more enjoyable.
M: Really bright. Something a little bit more tame would have balanced the woody notes a little bit better, I think. Pretty sticky on the finish.
O: Really pretty good. Some of the hop imbalance in the taste as compared to the nose is a little much - if it tasted just a little more like it smelled it would be fantastic.

A-almost clear golden color that has a small white head that fades fast and leaves a lacing
S-grapefruit, pine, and some lemon
T-slight hop taste at first then you get the hop kick in the aftertaste that gives you a grapefruit dry finish
M- light body and medium carbonation
O-this was not an overpowering hop flavor beer, but solid
