look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

pours a golden yellow with a little bit of foam on top. just noticed the bottled on date is October 2, 2013. we're almost into april now so I guess I aint gettin' the freshest there is....
smell is bland, muted, but with hops. not much else.
taste is sweet and honey-like up front with (almost) an explosion of fruit and caramel sweetness at the end. wow. biscuit sweet up front, caramel sweet at the end. slightly bitter hop in the middle. this is awesome. and it's old? someone else nailed it saying "lemon, orange and white grapefruit". that is exactly how this one tastes, and he was speaking from an older bottle also. this one is awesome. extremely sessionable and a 7.6% on top of that!! I can drink this on all day!!!!
