3.65/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear, copper-brown color. Small head leaves little lacing.

The smell is somewhat mild. Yet, you get a broad spectrum of hop aroma. Its not hard to detect hints of floral, spicy, and citric hops.

Taste is bitter, hoppy. A nice peppery hop flavor stands out, supported by a very subtle but sufficient malt background. The finish is just on the harsh side of average. Taste is decent, but aftertaste is just slightly more bitter than my palate likes.

Some robust carbonation keeps the the strong flavor from overwhelming the mouth. For being such a hoppy brew, the beer isn't at all "sticky", for which I'm grateful.

Moderate weight and body makes it easy enough to drink, but the excessively bitter finish means that I myself probably won't purchase another sixer of it.

2.98/5  rDev -20.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours amber with about one finger of foam,light beige that does not retain and leaves minimal lacing. Clear with decent carbonation showing.

Aroma: Light citrus hop aroma but I did not detect much anything else.

Taste: A mild citrusy hop flavor but not big like a lot of APA's. Overall this beer is pretty mild. Crisp and clean, the hops do linger.

Mouth Feel: Smooth and crisp with a light to medium body. Finishes dry.

Overall: Not a bad beer but I was hoping for a little more out of it. Certainly would drink it again.
