Rare is it that I can't finish even half a beer. This was such a beer. This is an abuse of hops.

L: hazy orange with thick bubbly head, light carbonation in body.
A: citrus and pine.
F: light and easy drinking, slightly hoppy, carbonated, and oily.
T: citrus and pine but not strong enough. It's bitter but not good bitter more like flat bitter with carbonation. Lemony hop oil flavor with an oak flavor that kind've ruins the whole taste.
O: would not buy again. Expected better. Unbalanced beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours dark orange red with a tiny head. Smells of small amounts of citrus and floral hops. Tastes of citrus hops with really nice grain backbone. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking with a good level of carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

Color is light yellow with frothy white cap which it retains and good lacing.

Aroma is bready malt and rich, spicy hops with a lingering floral citrus scent.

Taste is hop forward with malt standing in the background but not out of sight. I get grapefruit and bitter lemon as the citrus influence which sing a little louder in the finish/aftertaste.

Medium texture.

Overall it's a good effort. They were shooting for a noticeable but lighter hop presence and they hit the mark. Hops are undoubtedly the star of the show but malt plays a strong supporting role. Brewer says five varieties of hops are used so there's something for everybody but my palate is not attuned enough to separate them out. There are enough of them alright all the way to the aftertaste which is mildly and pleasantly bitter.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of piney hops, light malts. Taste is pine, grains, a hint of citrus. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not bad, but somehow the flavors just don't seem to mesh properly.

I have been wanting to try this all summer and what a disappointment! Don't even think I will drink the other one that came in the 12! GROSS
