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

A- cloudy orange liquid. No carbonation visible. Frothy white head. Sticky lace everywhere. Persistent head.
S- blast of citrus, than dank and piney hops, sweet with a hint of caramel.

T- initially tastes like the session ipas going around... Light but bursting with resinous hops... The citrus is gone. More of an earthy hop taste. Some lingering sweet caramel.

M- lighter than I like. Thin mouthfeel like session ipas. Fierce bitterness that lingers and bites.

O great nose, good flavor. But the price and the thinness make it closer to a 4 than a 5.
