3.93/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a very nice head; plenty of retention and a smattering of lace

Smell: From the first whiff, you can tell this is going to be big in both the malt and hop directions - cakey and sugary malts buttress scents of lemon, tropical fruits and onions

Taste: The malts take the first step forward, bringing sugar cake flavors to act as the platform for the big hop bill; the hops don't disappoint, bringing a rather unique combination of lemon, tropical fruit and onions; while the hops dominate, there is plenty of sugary malt in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is a well-constructed beer and rather unique in its own right; I would score it higher if I liked the hop bill more but I am not crazy about the onion flavor

Thanks, aslamm75, for the opportunity
