4.59/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: Nice golden yellow (SRM around 4-5). Soft looking, medium head and lacing.

Smell: Incredible. That standard citra/mosaic mix of brightness and dankness.

Taste: Perfect. Juicy with very little bitterness. Pineapple, lemon, slight orange. Outer Range beers have this soft juicyness to them that almost tastes and feels hydrating, like this is the drink you were looking for and need to keep drinking. Hard to describe but it's so satisfying.

Feel: Soft and Perfect.

Overall: Yes. Yes. Yes.

delicious and fresh of course, but this isnt one of the most memorable outer range beers, not because it isnt killer, it is, but because its citra and mosaic driven again and it tastes like way too many others. sure there is some topaz in here, but its hard to appreciate where the citra and mosaic starts and the topaz begins, or the other way around, i love citra mosaic, dont get me wrong, but literally anyone who has ever dry hopped a beer is using them, and this combination is just starting to taste and smell samey to me, even tired, as much as i love it. i wish this was topaz in insolation, not sure what that would be like, but it would be a more interesting beer for sure. the flavor here is nice, meyer lemon, candied lemongrass, an oiliness, some light hop burn, and more residual sugar than i have known in anything from outer range so far, a little odd at first but i get used to it and start to like the way it extends the hops so long through the swallow. mosaic is so obvious here, i think its nice but it comes at the expense of the others. a little boozy too, not quite heavy, but warming, might be more appealing this time of year in the 7% abv range, but maybe thats being too critical. its juicy and fresh and dry hoppy and awesome, i feel like a spoiled brat even critiquing it really, but these guys have done better than this...
