4/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear, deep golden orange, with a large, sticky off-white head, which retains very well. The lacing is thick and scattered, the carbonation is profuse.
Aroma: An absolutely massive aroma of pine, grapefruit rind, and sweet orange hops burst forth. There is sweet caramel mat as well, but the malt is quite secondary to the staggering hop aroma.
Taste: AS with the aroma, tasting yields a surge of hops, predominately pine, but grapefruit and sweet orange hops are present as well. The caramel malt presence seems understated, bu that is probably only when considered against the hops. In a lesser-hopped beer, the malt would probably stand out. That being said, while this is a very hoppy beer, it still seems graceful ad pleasing. Finishes with a lingering medicinal hop bitterness, The relatively high ABV (6.8%) is handled so artfully that it almost escapes notice.
Mouth feel: Soft and full with zesty carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: A very well-crafted and drinkable example.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: can

Love this beer and the can it comes in. No to harsh not to light, just right. The color is just right, the smell of hops is just right. It does at times have a after taste but that's probably me cause it's off and on. Overall I like it better than any English IPA
