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

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Orange with a slight yellow tint. Perfectly clear. Two finger rocky white head with amazing retention and damn good lacing.

S: Very resinous. Citrus and earthy hops. Pineapple mainly with some orange peel. Just a hint of caramel.

T: Resinous and earthy. Touches of caramel. I know it's a pale ale but no bitterness at all. Very dirty/earthy finish with none of the citrus that was in the nose. Almost to much resin in the flavors.

M: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Very dry finish. Slick and oily.

O: A great beer. Not near the likes of Zombie Dust. But definitely tasty.

This beer pours amber with a 2 fingered head, lots of lacing as well as some sediment. The smell is nutty and malty. The flavor has a wonderful malt base to it with that nice fresh hop flavor that I am beginning to recognize, certainly a nice balance between the two. The mouthfeel is ok with a slight dry aftertaste and a good carbonation level. This beer has nice drinkablility and I could drink many of these in one sitting :)
