3.58/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: amber/copper; medium off white frothy head, long lasting

Smell: malty, but dominated by hops; previous review saying piney/pineapple is spot on

Taste: very sweet malt with big dose of alcohol; very resiny hoppy bite; well balanced with the sweetness, but I'm not crazy about the hop choice

Mouthfeel: creamy and chewy

Remarks: good beer overall, but I'm not a huge fan of US hops overall
