3.6/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle traded to me from mnbears fan at DLD. thanks again matt! drank from my samuel adams perfect pint glass.

A- this one pours out a translucent light golden colored body with a modest bright white head on top. the head is quick to fall and leaves behind small spots of lacing.

S- woah, this is going to be a hop monster. the initial whiff brings forth tons and tons of hops. lots of grapefruit and pine. some orange zest and some mango notes as well. floral hops come through decently strong as well. some sweet caramel and bready malts peek through at the end.

T- the taste starts out with more of the sweet caramel and bread like malts that i could smell, which provide a surprisingly strong malty backbone. the hops arnt as forceful as i would have expected either. lots of floral and piny notes. grapefruit makes a strong showing as well. lesser amounts of mango, pineapple, and orange zest.

M- the body is on the larger side of medium, and the carbonation is at an acceptable level. not as bitter as i would have liked. the alcohol shows itself a little more than i would have preferred also.

O- id drink this one again, but i was expecting more out of a new glarus unplugged series. there are certainly better examples of the style out there.
