look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and boozy alcohol. 12% is hard to hide.

Taste: The hops flavors and bitterness is balanced out by the caramel and toffee sweetness. Flavor profile got better as the beer warmed up.

Mouthfeel: Really smooth, medium to full bodied, low carbonation, mild bitterness, and a little booziness. Really easy to drink too.

Overall: The fact that I can barely taste the alcohol is awesome. There beer is the equivalence of 3 domestic light beers, but hundreds of times better and was made to enjoy over the course of a tv show and some. Man, I liked this beer a lot over the years.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - opaque orange caramel color with lots of off yellow head on the pour. Little to no lacing

Smell - up front lots of citrus bitterness, but you can smell a malt build

Taste - luckily the smell leads into the taste well with this one. Bitterness right into a well balanced maltiness

Mouthfeel - this beer isn't too carbonated, but and leaves a nice bitter flavor on your tongue

Overall - what a quite surprise from a beer trade. Great beer
