look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Glass: Odell's Rastal Tulip.

Appearance: Huge, dense head with fine bubbles. Quite hazy. Very pretty! Excellent rings of lacking.

Smell: Aroma consists of spicy hops with a bit of a floral note.

Taste: Similar to smell, with lemon, perfume, floral notes, and a sweet malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: Dry finish, though slightly sticky.

Overall: Tastes like a slightly old 60-minute IPA, but with the spicy lemon hop bill of a pils. Not refreshing enough, nor flavorful enough.

It pours clear light amber with a creamy white foam. Aroma has lots of floral hops, with pine and grass. The hop aroma is sharp and a reminder that this beer is continuosly hopped. The first thing that hits when tasting is the agressive hops, the body is light to medium and despite the hops it is easy to drink.

Poured into a tulip glass.
A nice golden color with a brilliant white foam head.
A light nose with slight hints of fruit.
A crisp mouth feel with tiny light bubbles. A touch of bitterness around mid palette.
A light hoppy grassy flavor, summery.
Over all an enjoyable experience.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.25 A: Murky orange brown color. Three plus fingers of frothy/creamy, off-white head. Retention is very good and spotty lacing is left.

4.25 S: This smells wonderful. Hops are sugary and citrusy with candied orange and pineapple. Also a strong, Pez-like candy component. It's hard to say whether this is from the hops, malts, or both. Caramel maltiness with toastiness. Booze is well hidden.

3.75 T: Taste is nearly as good. Again hops are sugary and citrusy with notes of herbalness. Mild bitterness. Caramel and toasty malts with a touch of biscuit in there as well.

3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth.

3.75 D: Solid all around. Tasty beer worth a try.
