4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is delicious. The light color and frothy white head seem to go with the lighter body feel. The hops are spicy and citrusy with great pine and citrus aromas, and what’s great is they don’t dry out the palate. Flowers, grass, ripe fresh apple, juniper berry. The beer has enough malt support without the malt really getting in the way flavor-wise or becoming sticky. This makes X a total pleasure to drink - easy, but entertainingly complete. Maybe I just got an exceptional bottle, so I will have to research that theory with lots more of ’em...
