4.38/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Poured from a 12 oz bottle with no freshness markings on it into a 25 oz crystal sniffer glass. The beer pours a glowing orange color with a billowing off-white head. The head thins rather quickly but swirling revives and creamy head that shows better retention. The head is very sticky and coats the sides of the glass with lacing.
Smell: Earhty hoppiness opens scent. Contributions smelling of grass, dried peaches, pine, raspberry seed, and a light maltiness fighting through with some caramel scents. The nose is dominated by the hop smell.
Taste: The flavor opens malty with a strong fruit character. It slides more to a pectin-like dried fruit flavor with brown sugar. The hop flavor is dry and quite significant giving a light bitterness up front that fades to reveal more enjoyable maltiness. The malt is very fruity near the end with tastes of berries, spicy peach slurpee, straw and a light earthy component that is present through the entire beer but stronger near the end. This beer is resiny sweet and very complex.
Mouthfeel: Very sticky with a warmth to it in the mouth. It leaves a sweet, syrupy aftertaste all over my mouth. The fruitiness makes it feel very refreshing.
Drinkability: This beer is very well done. No flavor of alcohol at all. They hide the 10% magnificently with delicate layers of hop and malt flavor. I recommend you try this one if you haven't already.
