3.5/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Pours a amberish color a little darker on the edges when held to the light. One finger light tan head show's light retention before dying down. Some light spotty lacing on the sides of the glass.
S- Big time floral hops in the aroma. There is a light citrus aroma throughout the entire nose. Light apricot aroma comes and goes in hints. There is a bready caramel malt in the ending of this beer.
T- Piney hops kick in the front with a light apricot taste. The middle seems to be more apricot forward with a light hop and caramel malt kick to it. The malts come up in the backing of this in a big sweetness with the piney hops coming back in to counterbalance the sweetness.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Hops and light apricot left on the palate with more malts and hops in the aftertaste. Alcohol is light drying on the palate. Flavors are balanced in the most extremes with this beer along with being crisp and clean tasting.
M- This beer was good and I would have a couple but a 4 pack is a little too much for me. I like this beer don't get me wrong but only a couple for me please.

A - Copper color with slight haze, small white head, extensive lacing.
S - Fairly muted, flat hop notes, malts in the form of pilsner coming through loud and clear.
T - Hop is mostly in the form of grass notes. A mild fruity note coupled with a cracker and grain malt hit. Turns bitter on the close, illustrating the serious hopping.
M - Given how bitter the turn is on the close, it is surprising how crisp the feel is. There is a gradual build, though, and it does burden the beer a bit you move into the second 6 oz.
O - This hybrid beer promises fruit, but though I think it is a decent IPA - nothing special, mind, but fairly clean and thoroughly hopped - the fruit is mostly lost. The only hint to its presence is a certain sweetness in the middle. Supporting role, indeed.
