4.9/5 rDev +40%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Went by the brewery today for a swift pint & didn't find anything big that struck my fancy, so I gave this a shot, I don't remember this tasting this good before, but this my 1st review for this so it gets a break
Poured amber/red with a 1.5: white head. Head retention was average and lacing was good
Smell: Huge "in your face" piney and floral hop aroma, blew me away. Some malt fruittyness snuck through
Taste: Big piney and citrussy hops folowed by fat maltiness and fruittyness. Finished hoppy and quenching (fruitty)
MF: Perfect balance and good carbonation, maybe slightly
I could drink this in draft form all day. Will have to try again to see how it fares. I find this to be a good not great beer in the bottle. But still worth a try in that form as well
follow up 5 may 2007, purchased a keg for a party & stand by my original raiting!
Serving type: on-tap

3.35/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A&S: White fluffy head that pours about a half a finger and retains as specks on top. Leaves tiny bits of lacing. Beer is a semi-lively full orange color. The aroma consists of sparse citrus hops and a heavy malt component, and some mild sweetness.
T&M: Little too malty. Lacking in the hop department. A little heavy on the palate due to its high malt content. Pretty bland. On the light side of medium body, on the low side of medium carbonation.
Overall: Not super drinkable. It wasn't like this beer is awful, I just wouldn't seek it out again and wouldn't recommend for the style (much better options out there).
