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!!!
