4.58/5  rDev -1.5%

This beer looks really great. A beautiful golden hue with a dense, fluffy off white head. Just great.

Grapefruit, mandarin and other citrus hit me all over with lops of great hop aroma. Not the best aroma I've ever had in a beer though.

Tasty. Nice a bitter but well countered with large doses of citrus hop. Good lingering bitterness. A truly great tasting beer and I'm glad I got to try this delicious nectar.

A nice rich mouthfeel with average carbonation that doesn't overwhelm. This really works well here.

Tasty, tasty tasty. There is lots of bitterness but it doesn't overwhelm and it just works really well. Yes, this beer is really hyped but it is very drinkable for its ABV and is very good.
