4.16/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served fresh from a bottle into a pint glass. Appearance is nice orange haze with lots of lacing that seems to linger. Smell is fresh fruit but not that strong. Would like more punch. Taste is fresh but again not that aggressive. Mouthfeel is average and overall, I believe the first time I tasted it must have been stale as this experience was delicious.

Serving type: bottle
