5/5 rDev +25.3%
From the Troeg's Brewer's Dozen Variety Pack
Appearance- Poured into a pilsner glass...a nice amber red color with a large head that overflowed the glass at first and then settles down.
Smell-sweet wiffs of flavorful hops, sweet malt, a little bit of berry and a lot of grain. Very aromatic.
Taste- hops hit you immediately while the sweet malt puncuates the senses, character is well balanced, medium bodied mouthfeel, layered taste moves between hopes, fruit, and sweet malt, spicy finish.
Mouthfeel-not too heavy or too light, nice balance of hops, malt, and other layered flavors.
Drinkability-easy to drink, very nice flavor and charactar, flawless.
Overall-Spectacular, the first beer I've ever given a flawless rating to. I'm absolutely floored, great work.

Appearance- Appealing look to it, not too dark and not light at all.
Smell- Is great! A bold hoppy aroma, very pleasant and mouth watering.
Taste- Is exceptional. I personally believe this to quite possibly be the perfect amount of hops. Incredible flavor that's not too 'soapy' with a mildly bitter/sweet after taste.
Mouthfeel - Not too thick at all, I could easily and comfortably swish in my mouth.
Drinkability - Easy case gone.
This beer has been placed as my number one ranked beer, and I have been studying for a long time.
