look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Somehow ended up with a bottle of this from a BOTMC delivery. Have drunk gallons of this in the keys, imagine that I have never reviewed it until now. Bueno, lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a sweet hoppiness with an apparent big malt base. Pours into my recently rediscovered sam's perfect pint as a cloudy bright yellow with a clingy foamy off white macro-bubble head. Taste is floral off the bat then a malt base is smoothly bitter, all transitioning to a sweet and sour finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not your pale ales experts brew but the taste brings me back to the keys, and that ups the overall, considerably.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: single finger head with excellent retention on a hazy copper-amber body.

S: mostly musty and pungent hops and some sweet caramel malts.

T: Disappointing as I feel it is overly malted with the hops minor players in the flavor contributing mostly some pine and citrus notes with slight grass bitterness.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: A little overboard on the malts which is the discretion of the brewer but I like these on the hoppier side.
