4.38/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Ruddy amber with a small white head and light carbonation. Scattered spots of lacing. Very clear, with little haze or particulate matter.

Smell: Toasty and biscuity. Warm bread crusts. Nice malty backdrop, with a caramelized sugar tone. Hops seemed sharp initially, but lose force quickly.

Taste: Smooth in the mouth. Nicely hopped, with a nice mix of citrus and herbal flavors. Sweet and sticky malts fight the hops for attention in the middle, but are cast away once again in the end by a peppery alcohol kick and lemon zest and pith. Dry and citrusy in the finish, and quite drinkable.

Very interesting, and extremely enjoyable. I really enjoyed this one, and it's all thanks to cmaruschak!
