look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance
Thick fluffy head. Large soapy bubbles in the head. Lots of lacing. The head takes time to go down. The body is cloudy. The color is amber or maybe light orange. Moderate carbonation. Yeast is at the end of the pour. It settles at the bottom of the glass.

Smell
Piney hops.

Taste
Piney hops. Bitter. Malt body is there but malt flavor is not strong. The yeast bits at the bottom have a bread flavor. IMO there is too much hop flavor with not enough malt flavor to balance it out. Overall still quite good.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied. Hop bitterness lingers.

Overall
An excellent beer. Cascade hops are shown off. "CAN CONDITIONED". Quality.
