Nice one. Pleasantly flavourful despite the low(ish) ABV. The label says it’s hopped with Citra Cryo and Mosaic Cryo, with the same again in the dry hop, in addition to regular Citra and Mosaic. Well, duh, of course I’m going to like that. That lively carbonation is fairly nice, especially at the front end. However, it’s a bit of a double-edged sword in that it seems to be necessary, but doesn’t necessarily sustain: as I’m getting to the end of the pint, it’s tending to go a little flat, and that’s making it feel a little flaccid. I’m not penalizing it for that, but will note that this is one that you should drink fairly quickly – good thing it’s crushable. (15/20)
This will be my 5,607th unique Untappd check-in.
