look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is hoppy, some citrus. Taste is milder than the smell. Some hop bitterness, a touch of citrus, light pine as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good but unspectacular beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a nice light amber brown with half an inch of cream colored head that faded into wisps, a medium collar and very good lacing. Aroma is toasty/bready malt, with faint pint and citrus hops. Taste is appropriately bitter, with the bready malt taking main stage. There's some earthy and piney hops behind the big malt presence. Nice bitter bite on the tongue, medium body and med-high carbonation.
