4.16/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Southampton Publick House pint glass. Bottled 10/18/13, so about 3 weeks old. Bought at Whole Foods Newport Beach CA for $8.99.
A - Burnt orange color. Eggshell head leaves decent lacing.
S - Citrus - orange and grapefruit. A bready note in the background. Not overly pungent.
T - Grapefruit, orange, a little catpiss upfront. Very bright. Then goes into a nice smooth malty flavor that plays well with the hops. An aggressive bitterness on the backend that dries things out nicely. No discernible heat from the robust 8% ABV.
M - Silky smooth. Carbonation is medium. The silky mouthfeel is cut by the hoppy bitterness perfectly.
O - Great beer. Perfect balance between the hops and malts. Mouthfeel is spot on, makes it easy to drink.
