look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours golden-orange, perfectly clear, with a hefty off-white, slightly orange-hued head that lasts and last, and leaves a ton of lacing. Loads of little bubbles floating up through the glass. I know appearance doesn't count for all that much, but this beer is close to perfect.
Smell is all hops up front, but supported well by a solid light malt backbone. Citrus, pine, and floral hops, in that order. There's so much complex hop aroma that it's hard to pick out individual scents, but grapefruit is probably the most prominent. I've rarely encountered a beer with such a variety of good hop aromas together. Wow, this smells good. No bitterness or alcohol in the nose.
Taste is good, though not quite as good as the smell. I get a quick taste of some light, slightly sweet malts before the hops kick in. Again, it's mostly citrus and pine, with pine playing a bigger role here. Finishes slightly bitter.
Medium-light in the mouth, rather thin, but I like it that way. Medium-high carbonation that goes really well with the beer's flavors. Lingers for a bit, not too long, not too short.
This is clearly a highly-hopped amber ale. It has a great variety of hops, especially in the smell. I'm a big fan, and hope to acquire more of this in the future.

This is quite the luscious treat! It pours medium brown, with an amazing head. The aroma is hoppy and malty.
The taste is a robust full bodied, hoppy thing. Wonderful and unique. The aftertaste is strong and sweet.
Overall, it is a good, robust brew, but a bit overpowering for many foods.

Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a nice white head that leaves a nice ring of lacing around the glass.
Smell is very citrusy up front with some sweet and bitter notes added in. A very complex sleeping beer.
Taste is excellent. Tastes just like it smells, bitter yet sweet. An absolute perfect balance of flavors. Starts out sweet citrus followed by slightly bitter hops taste.
Overall an excellent beer with a lot of aroma and flavor balanced perfection. I heard great things about this beer and it did not disappoint. Best beer I've had from Troegs by far. Highly recommended!
