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

A- has the look of a light apple cider. Cloudy topped with a off white 1 finger head.

S- Citrus and sweet hops with a malty backbone. Piney. But there is a smell there I can't put the finger on. May be the floral notes.

T- Citrus and hoppy. Big hop finish. Sweet with just a bit of bitter on the end. Has a touch of the floral aromas in the flavor as well.

M- Well balanced and great body. Smooth.

O- I think this one will take just a little getting used to for me. There is something about this one that just doesn't do it for me. However, I would still give this one high marks. It's a good beer.
