4.85/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance- very crisp and clear in color copper to pale golden in color, thin white lacing retains along top, nice bubbles stream the glass
Smell- beautiful and really sharp citrus hops on the nose, really pungent in smell, grapefruit and just all kinds great rich hop smell, powerful
Taste- the mouth feel follows with out doubt that of the nose with powerful citrus tones, just loads and loads hops up front followed by middle back bone of malts providing great balance along the middle and the finish is just so long, lingers and lingers and lingers,
Mouthfeel- medium to light bodied its just so smooth and feels so slick and nice in the mouth with low carbonation
Overall/drinkability- okay well this is probably one of the beers I looked forward to enjoying trying more then anything else really or at least way at top of the list, i always wonder if i would find it lived up to all the hype, and it did, this beer is stellar, the flavor is just so spectacular and the balance is superb as it is hoppy but never crossing that line of being to much, the body is perfect, in drink ability its just flawless so smooth so slick, and that finish just wont stop, wow just really really good, this beer is all its hyped up to be and more ,far and away my best ipa if not beer, its a beer i only wish i could get all time, props to my guy who got me this thanks for the treat.
