3.55/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle dated 5/25/12 into pint glass
Appearance – The brew pours a golden amber color with a big white head. The head has huge bubbles entrapped within. These bubbles very slowly pop over time leaving a very nice level of lacing
Smell – The smell is a wonderful mix of citrus sweet and bitter hop. There is a nice sweet tangerine aroma which counteracts a very good dose of bitter grapefruit and a more sour lemon. Mixed with these is also a light bready and a good piney and floral hop aroma as well. Overall it is very pleasing.
Taste – The taste begins of a heavy malt taste mixed with a very strong grapefruit hop flavor. While the nose suggested sweetness, the flavor in the beginning is on the drier side and only gets drier as the taste moves on. Toward the middle of the taste some lemon and herbal hop flavors come to the tongue. These linger and grow stronger to the end. Finishing off the taste is a dose of pine hop. This flavor however seems to battle with the others on the tongue and in the end leaves a somewhat unpleasant grassy and lipid/trub taste in the mouth.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the creamier side with a lower level of carbonation. The creaminess suits all the hoppy flavors quite well, while the lower carbonation accentuates this creaminess.
Overall – This beer was fantastic on many fronts. It had a great look smell and feel, and the taste for the most part was a pleasant dry hoppy flavor. Unfortunately the taste left on the tongue at the end was not too pleasant and really pulled away from the overall drinkability.
