look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance - Hazy light amber color with a foamy off-white head.
No real retention and lacing.

Smell - Nice Citrus hop presence.

Taste - Sweet and Hoppy with a nice hop after taste.

Mouthfeel - Mouth filling without over doing it. If you like hops this beer will fill your mouth with the flavor and not let go till after it's down your gullet

Drinkability - I'm very glad I have many more of these!!!!
