5/5  rDev +26.3%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

APPEARANCE: Mildly hazy golden yellow. Poured from can into a Jester King goblet creating a thick, chunky, soapy looking eggshell hued head. Already it is clinging everywhere to the glass. Final lacing is awesome covering the entire glass.

SMELL: Very very citrusy. Dank hops and subtle lemon notes. Bit of grass and hay with the malt stepping into the background this time around.

TASTE: Superiorly delicious. Massive amounts of hops without it being overly hoppy. I mean it is hoppy and all, its just more dank flavors from the hops than it is bitter. Grass and citrus. Very earthy as well. Straight up awesome.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body. Crisp smooth carbonation, slightly oily and very dry about mid-mouth but finishing wet and clean.

DRINKABILITY: This is the first beer I've given a perfect rating on I think. This is exceptionally refreshing for a hop head as well as a regular beer drinker while being sessionable as well.

I first had this on tap at Real Ale during an anniversary party, long before I started reviewing beers apparently. I was glad to see it is now in cans. Thanks to @Xicanobeerrun for the trade!
This pours from the can a solid yellow tan color, like a dark lemon jello color. There’s a underprounced straw-grass hop aroma on it which lends itself to a crisp, straw/grassy characteristic as it’s sipped. The seasons haven’t changed to fall where I live yet but this beer is making me think it would be the perfect autumn IPA sipper.
