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

A: Hazy honey colored body, some copper tone as well. Rocky pure white head dissipates quickly leaving a thin cap, but decent lacing.

S: Big oily hops hit first, pure pines, with orange rind. Some lighter smell, papaya. Toasted bread.

T: Whoa, sweet sweet hops hit me first. I get papaya as in the nose, and honeydew. Almost citrus, but none of the "tanginess" of the type. Lots of sweetness from the malts. Hops have an herbal taste on the backside, oily and bitter but don't cross into the piney resinous type. Gets better as it warms and blends nicely. Malts are dryer on the back as well, bread toast comes to mind.

M: Nice solid medium body, a bit much on the carbonation.

O: Just an overall good brew, the huge hop profile is unique in it's "almost citrus" profile. Well done.
