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

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a stemmed glass. This is batch #2 - bottled March 2014.

Appearance: Pours a translucent, not-very-hazy amber/gold and leaves a couple fingers of fluffy white head that take a while to fade to some leftover white atop the beer. Carbonation bubbles can be seen floating to the surface.

Smell: Lemon zest, lively hops, slight grassy funk, lime, citrus, hint of crackery malts. Nice, lively, refreshing scent.

Taste: The crackery malts are still here but a little more pronounced, lemon zest, citrus rinds, grassy hops. Huge drinkability with nice, light refreshing flavors. There is just a hint of funk and tartness, but quite mild.

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a thin to medium, slightly creamy body. Finishes incredibly smooth.

Overall: Such a refreshing, drinkable beer - for that this is incredibly well done. Nice light hop, malt, and grassy flavors make this one a fantastic summer beer, ironic that it is "Arctic" in the name.
