4.11/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Perfect amber color, good head, excellent lacing.

Smell: Citrus and caramel.

Taste: Citrus front and center, with a caramel malt in the background.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied, good citrus hop afterbite.

The Verdict: Delicious. Though extremely hoppy, it is fairly well balanced by the solid malt backbone.

Poured a deep orange color with a good carbonation and a small white head. Nose is big, malty, heavy and fruits with floral notes. Taste is good at first but the longer it stays on the pallete the harsher it becomes. Very big on weight, the orginal gravity of this beer has to be pretty big. Lots o' malt, hearty, chewy and heavy. Leaves it heavy and sordove undrinkable to an extent but the taste was good so dont bank on having many of these.
