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

A - Really nice can - catchy but not flashy. Beer itself is a rich tan color - looks scrumptious. Perfect head.

S - Floral and spicy, with a slightly dankish smell. Almost onion like. A little pine. Herbal notes as well.

T- Hops, hops, hops - herbal flavor with a heavy floral background. Delicious from start to finish.

M - Mouthfeel is really right on target with perfect carbonation and slightly dry finish.

O - Damn this is good. I see what the ravings are all about now!!!

16 oz can poured into...wait...not pouring it anywhere.

A - A glorious silver with black lettering and artwork.

S - Floral and dank hops. Onion and faint malts.

T- Hops, funky with some faint onion and herbal notes, and balanced with some sweet malts. Definitely hop forward.

M - Carbonation above average. Mouthfeel is spot on. Somewhat sharp on the finish.

O - A pleasure to drink. Thanks to Rick G for making it possible.
