4.3/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Light bronzish amber color... Completely translucent... Two fingers of rich white foam... Great lacing... A minimal amount of very slow paced carbonation... Great rings cling to the glass throughout the session...

S - No real surprises as citrus and hop scents are first and foremost... A complex hop profile is noticeable... Floral aromas come to the forefront next... Followed by very faint hints of malt and caramel... The aroma develops nicely...

T - A complex blend of hops... Tomahawk are the most noticeable... A twinge of citrus... Floral and earthy notes... A faint malty caramel backbone emerges... Perhaps even a hint of spiciness at the finish...

M - Insanely smooth, rich, and creamy at first... Minor carbonation noted on the tongue... Oily hop resins coat the mouth... Only a slight bitterness lingers as an aftertaste... Hides the 93 IBU perfectly... One of the easiest drinking beers that I've ever tried (dangerous considering the 7.5% ABV)...

D - Fantastic... Much more well balanced and enjoyable than most "hop bombs..." Excels in all areas and leaves one wanting more... A truly well crafted brew that all Beer Advocates should seek out and try...

Note - The beer is excellent cold, but even more stellar once warmed to closer to room temperature...
