4.28/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle for $3.75, best by 5/20/13, poured into a Half Acre snifter

A: Pours a deep amber orange clear body with 1 finger of eggshell-white head. Not great retention but some lacing.

S: Not overly aromatic but definitely some nice cirtus tones are present with some malty sweetness.

T: Well-balanced! Great hop taste with a strong malt body, good bitterness present. Citrus hop flavors are good.

M: Crisp with good carbonation, full body, not the smoothest or creamiest but easily drinkable. sticky finish, moderately dry.

O: A good change of pace from the hop-head crazy DIPAs. While I do love a ton of bitterness and hops, this is a beer I could have a few of without a ton of palate fatigue. Nicely balanced, easily drinkable, worth picking up a few if you get the chance.
