4.43/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear, lively copper hue with an eggshell colored head. The head is thick and creamy a retains a nice frothiness for some time after the pour. Bubbly lacing crops up all over the sides of the glass upon each sip. A very refreshing looking beer.

S: Sweet piney and resiny hops blast the nose up front, giving way a waft of sweet caramel malts hiding away in the background. You can smell this beer from a ways away and seems to draw you in with pleasant aromas of orange peel and tangerine.

T: Aggressive hops dominated by notes of thick pine resin, orange/lemon peel, come through up front making for a delightful blend of sweet, refreshing, and intriguingly earthy tastes. The beer departs the palate with slightly sweet notes of caramel malts and ends with a definitive crisp character. Surprisingly low bitterness in the aftertaste given the dominance of the hops.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a certain stickiness upon the lips. Clean and dry in the finish with a moderate warming sensation passes down the throat.

O: Definitely one of the better beers I have had. Superbly drinkable and well crafted in my opinion, I couldn't think of an occasion where I would turn one down. The full and refreshing flavor will keep me coming back for more.
