4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Aroma: loaded with floral and citrus hops, grass, grapefruit, melon, light bready malt notes, some yeast. Pours light golden, fairly clear, big white head with good retention and lacing coats the glass. Massive hop flavor - lots of citrus, melon, tropical fruit, some pine and resin, a touch of light malts and sweetness helps balance. Medium bitterness, the focus stays on the hop flavors, fairly dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Really great brew - these guys know what they’re doing with hops...
