4.8/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with an orange hue. Nice big head on top that leaves plenty of lace.
Smell: Huge hit of simcoe hops. There is that awesome mix of mango and pineapple that makes these russian river brews amazing. The aroma is sweet and really enticing.
Taste: Blissfulness, is that a flavor? There is just heaps of fruity hops, including that wonderful mango pineapple peachy taste that clears the sinuses. A really bitter back that finishes almost sweet, and just forces you to come back for more.
Mouthfeel: Very dry and crisp, leaves your tongue sticky.
Drinkability: This is true hop head nirvana. There are more hops than you know what to do with and the perfect balance makes you yearn for more. One of the beers that proves how good beer really can be.
Serving type: on-tap
