4.15/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A nice transparent copper tone with a pure white big bubbled head. A tiny ring of sediment around the bottom of the bottle. Smell is so sweet and bitter, full of hop and guava aroma. The taste is very much the same hops up front with a growing guava aftertaste leaving the flavor of fruit mentos on the taste buds. A very tangy bitter citrus bite to it that seems to be a little overpowering and taste like lemon peels. I like the way this ale disperses along my palate it seems to mellow itself out. A great ale that could use a little less citrus bite.
Cheers!
