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

Appearance is a brilliant golden orange that looks absolutely stunning in direct sunlight. Not much head, but looks very silky.

Smells faintly of freshly baked bread, lemon zest, grapefruit, and just overall very tropical.

Taste is a perfect complement to the inviting wafts of this brew. Definitely taste freshly baked bread, maybe it's just me, but I'm not complaining. Definite citrus fruits, some lemon and orange zest, slight starfruit, very tasty.

Mouthfeel is very silky for the amount of hops, each sip invites another.

Overall an excellent selection and I would definitely pick up more of these if I come across them.
