4.18/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

With a good pour I get a foamy and pillowy 3 finger tan head. Appears fairly clear, and as a deep brown copper/amber. Lots of interesting aromas here. Bright, almost candy like fruit, grapefruit and even strawberry comes at me. Milder pine and citrus hops round out the overall bouquet. Nice hop bite up front with citrus character, perfectly rounded by a mellow roasted malt base, caramel, toasty, chocolate all present but not overpowering, especially given the color. There is a slight smokiness to the finish. Body firmly in the middle on this one, nice hop resin feel, creamy, overall very good, highly drinkable. Excellent

Serving type: bottle
