look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Very dark with 2 fingers of cream-colored head that hung around for a bit.

Smell - Piney and malty. Very welcoming.

Taste - Fabulous piney hop presence, but not overwhelming. The blend of hops and malt was damn near perfect.

Mouthfeel - Light. Finishes very clean. Excellent.

Overall - Very drinkable! Excellent brew overall. Calling it "Alpha King's festive cousin" is spot on. Can't wait to get more of this ASAP.
