look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a nonic.

A: Cloudy, dark golden hue; with a giant, frothy bone colored head. Craters slowly and unevenly, leaving behind hefty amounts of dry residue. Substantial beer ring lacing. Head explodes with each new pour.

S: Hops with a bit of oatmeal, and a prominent floral component of lavender. Maybe a little basil in there also.

T: Nice, hoppy goodness, with a slight pungency from the oat. A light woody tone, with a slightly sweet hint of butterscotch.

M: Light and crisp. Biting hops in the front, with a slightly pungent aftertaste that lingers through the finish.

D: Goes down easy with a pleasing sweet hoppy goodness. Consume at will.

Atmosphere is a really good. Cloudy body, with a thick frothy head, and plenty of lacing. Nose is hops with a pungency from the oatmeal; with a floral character and some sweet and spice components. Flavor is crisp, hoppy, and pungent, with a woody tone and some sweet components for balance. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
