look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a light orange, mainly yellow color with a healthy inch of frothy head that laces very well. Beautiful.

Smell is of CLEAN hops with grapefruit and orange popping out. Not much malt at all on the nose, with a weedy, oily finish as well.

Taste is definitely hops-centric, and in a great way. Bitter and citrusy, it is all you would expect from a "harvest" ale. Malts offer not much, and a tiny bit of sweetness if anything.

Mouthfeel is a bit watery and fizzy, probably the downside of the beer. Leaves a sticky dry feeling afterwards. Drinkability excellent due to the clean taste and dry finish. Overall a fantastic beer in every way but mouthfeel.
