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.
