4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, citrus, grassy, pine, and spicy hops with some caramel and biscuit malts.
T - Starts off with some grapefruit and tropical hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, the pine, grassy, and lightly spicy hops come through with some more lightly resiny bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, pine, and grassy hops, bitterness, and sweet, lightly bready malts.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and lightly sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really great hop profile with a smooth bitterness. Great balance.
