4.43/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A - Clear golden color with a russet hue, small head, fair amount of lacing clings to the glass.
S - This is like sticking your nose in a bowl of crushed hops, or maybe like snorting the resin. Smooth pine mostly with lighter citrus (orange). An excellent aroma. No malt at all though.
T - Strong pine resin upfront. No malt profile. The flavor is pine with a bit of lemon, orange and pineapple underneath. Not really bitter at all. That surprised me. Very enjoyable.
M - Smooth, thin, very refreshing.
D - Excellent. I would never have guessed the strength of this one. It is a beer that lives up to the hype. It was an awesome experience for sure. I had this at the Pizzeria Paradiso shorty before they kicked the keg. Lucky me!
Serving type: on-tap
