3.7/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a vibrant, crystal clear, copper coloring with a thin, clingy, bright white filmy coating of head. Aromas of citrus and piney hops, with a subtle caramel backbone. Very balanced and clean nose. Flavors are hop forward, with a pepper spiced bite and solid caramel backbone in almost perfect balance. Citrus tart of lemon and orange zest highlights the palate. Very resiny, pepper spiced aftertaste, with enough sweetness to remain balanced. The finish is bitter, slightly drying, and slightly effervescent from the carbonation. Very easy to drink, and very solid and balanced.
