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

Pours a beautiful clear light brown deep red hue. Leaves a nice one and a half finger off white head that retains nicely.

Smell has aromas has huge fresh hop aromas forward. Really nice potent floral hop aromas forward. There is a light spice aroma that is hard to pinpoint, something herbal, cardamon? Light piney hop aromas over a rich caramel malt.

Taste is great more fresh hops are forward notes mainly of pine and herbal hops. There is a nice floral flavor midway that makes me think maybe some honey. Malt is very lightly sweet and flavors of caramel.

Mouthfeel is good lots of hoppy oil give this a medium body with a fair amount of stickiness. Not much bitterness for all the hops in the nose and flavor. Moderate carbonation, very drinkable.

Overall this was in interesting take on a Christmas ale. Tons of hop which surprised me. With this as hoppy as it is, it should be drank before Christmas.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

This beer has a brightness and clarity, both complete, in an orange-red body. The off-white head, foamy and fairly stocky. It holds itself up determinedly at perhaps 3/4 finger and distributes steady, hearty lace.
Pine is there behind grapefruit, both juice and zest, with mild pith and a gentle, easy sort of spicing to back it up. It's plenty strong, backed up by bready and toasty malts but almost brilliant in its juiciness. The orange peel smell and taste is just right, enough to give it that zesty something without coming too hard. The same could be said for the spicing, mostly notes of cinnamon and allspice, possibly nutmeg.
This is a smooth ale and softly carbonated. It sits between sweet and dry and finds the middle, both elements making their case while keeping it civil so there's no clashing. There's abalance in the crispness between bite and flow, so to speak, and the entire session it remains soft but strong.
This is definitely one of the better Winter/Christmas beers out there, and one of the best spiced beers available overall.
