look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear copper in color. Forms a large, fluffy, off-white head. Decent retention and some moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is fairly light, though what is there is pleasant. Mildly sweet with notes of orange and orange blossom. Citrus zest, pine, and caramel malt to a lesser extent.

T: Taste starts off with a light sweetness. Mandarin orange and a strong floral character. Beer then turns thin and watery. Quick finish.

M: Body is on the lighter side of medium. Lower carbonation. Increasing mild-to-moderate bitterness. Thin finish.

O: For a beer named "Fistful of Hops" I've got to admit, I was expecting more hops. Instead I got a beer with the same amount of hops as a normal beer, but less malt, leaving a thinner, sweeter beer with some hoppy characteristics. The beer is drinkable, but a bit of let down and is certainly not worth it's $12/4-pack price tag.
