4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
This dry and bubbly hophead’s brew shares citrus fruit galore and lemongrass allusions before green bitterness impersonates a few blades of grass.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam covers the hazy blond.
-I’m not sure this beer was intended to be that carbonated. In any case, it turned out to wonderfully complement the hop aroma and flavors.
-This brew has lots of personality.
-The citrus fruit allusions are impressive and not linear From lemons to starfruit, they are all juicy and fresh.
