4.1/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Very dark brown, as I can just barely see through it when held to a light. Nice half finger beige head as well.

S- Citrusy, piney and grassy hop aromas domminate. A light roasted malt character is noticeable in the background as well.

T- The roasty malt character gains strength from being weak in the nose before. The hops don't go down without a fight resulting in a great balance throughout. The finish leans a little hoppy but is still well balanced overall.

M- Nice smooth medium body with good carbonation.

O- A great "sessionable" CDA. If you have the means, I highly recomend picking some up.

Serving type: bottle
