4.5/5  rDev +21%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Tried this one on the recommendation of George over at Westy's. Pours a golden copper with a nice 1" white lumpy head. Great lacing and nice level of carbonation. The smell is hops, hops and more hops with a floral citrus edge to it, but it's not overpowering, just the right amount. Taste also shows the citrus hops but dosen't leave an overly bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied and smooth on the pallate. This is one of my new favorites, i will be buying more of this. The cool name and label add to the experience.
