3.9/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Lightly hazed pale yellow amber with an explosive off-white head. Once the severely overcarbonated brew settles a bit, the head remains with craggy, stiff peaks and incredible lacing.

Aroma is more on par with an IPA; strong citrus and floral hops with toffe and honey malts.

Flavor excellent, orange peel and pine meet crushed flowers drenched in honey malt.

Body super carbonated at first, but slick and creamy once settled a bit. Obviously something wrong w/ this bottle as per the excessive carbonation. But it tastes fresh and very tastey.
