look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Best by 8/19/2013 Bottle in a snifter

A- orange color with a slight amber hue....lingering light white head

S- I use the zombie dust scale....zombie is 10/10...this is a 9/10. Great grain/malt note up front followed a great balance hop note...outstanding

T- really a perfect balance of malt and hops. No ups or downs but a nice semi dry mildly bitter finish.

M- The combination of perfect hop/malt balance and medium mouthfeel really makes this a great experience

O- Just a flat out great beer!
