4.33/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz poured into a stemmed ale glass. Dated: 2/15/11

A- Pours a transparent orange/ amber color. A nice fluffy white head that leaves sticky lacing.

S- Lots of orange, pineapple, some piney resin. A mild sweetness of ripe fruit and a twinge of soft caramel.

T- Big burst upfront of fruity and piney hops. Grapefruit that fades to orange in the finish. Mild caramel malt in the backbone is present but the hops take center stage. Bitterness is most like pine. Tastes fresh and clean,.

M- The initial burst of hop flavors quickly resides to mellow mouth feel. Bitterness is mild in the finish and lingers. Some tingling of palate. Not overbearing.

D- No alc. Tastes like the label; like freshly squeezed juicy hops. So easy to drink. Get a 6er over a bomber, you will probably want this more then once.

4.05/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint mug, this is a reddish amber beer with a smallish but persistent head. Good malt aroma with a pleasant underlay of grassy, piney hops. Flavor is really good, with plenty of malt backed against high bitterness that tastes of citrus, fresh-mown grass hoppiness. Nice big body, but not overly heavy. Light esters finish out the dry end.
