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

Appearance - Pours a fairly clear, bright burnt orange color with an off-white head that peaked at just under 2 fingers. Good retention. Leaves a fine lace that borders on spotty, with good stick.

Smell - Lightly toasted biscuit malt, leafy, fresh almost mint hop character with traces of pine and citrus.

Taste - Hits on the lightly toasted malt briefly to start, then pounds you with a nice array of hop character; grassy bitterness, pine, and citrus notes. Finishes with a faint touch of peppery spice and a lingering bitter-sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick on the tongue. Finishes with fair smoothness.

Overall - Had this on tap just last week, and I enjoyed it a bit more than what I'm having out of the bottle. There's no bottling date, so I can't say how fresh this is. Still, it's pretty damn good.
