look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

can to snifter (canned 10/13/20); thanks to DC for this one.

LOOK: Darkish yellow color, but bright, gelatinous haze, big creamy eggshell head. excellent retention.
AROMA: light hints of citrus, wood, pine, floral meshing together very nicely. no one attribute stands out.
TASTE: citrus come first, followed by a smooth pine and then mellowed further and slightly embittered by a late biscuit like malt.
FEEL: light to medium body, creamy, pillowy frothy lightness.

Very nice collaboration between 2 of the best.

Poured from a 16 oz can dated 10/23/20 into the test glass
A - Hazy straw color, Gently carbonated, that carbonation collects topside forming a lasting loose froth. Lovely on the eyes.
S - Like a quiet walk through a forest of orange, pineapple, pine, and apricot trees in full harvest season. Add a bit of sweet malt and there you have it.
T - Apricot and orange, with again hints of pineapple, green grape skin, pine, The malt is more expressive but still a supporting act. One that adds to the experience.
M - Soft on the palate, but with all that tropical components, the pine and malts keep this from tilting to the sweet side.
A lovely almost evapratory dry finish.
O - A very nuanced and superbly balanced pale ale, Yes it is full hop display, with more depth than most
I can understand why the label includes " think Hophands meets Edward"

L: Hazy yellow with a foamy head and good lacing.

S: Pungent hop notes, like smelling a bag of hops. Pine, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach.

T: Resinous bitterness, big juicy hop flavors of grapefruit and pineapple. Very subtle malt, just a bready backdrop for the hops.

F: Medium/light bodied with a crisp finish.

Overall: A very hoppy pale ale that is extremely drinkable. Lots of classic hop character combined with fruity yeast notes. Definitely worth getting.
