look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear copper orange color with a solid one finger cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving no lacing.

Aroma is heavily dominated by bready caramel malt, which is accented by a hint of citrus hop, finishing slightly floral.

Flavor reveals a bit more underlying citrus hop, resting on a bready malt backbone, finishing with a bit of herbal tea-like hop and a touch of pepper.

Body is moderate, with fairly high carbonation and a touch of alcohol warmth.

Overall, not nearly enough hop flavor for the style. It's a fairly underwhelming selection.
