look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

A - kind of a nice gold color. White head. Good retention and lacing.

N - piney hops. A little citrus.

T - hop front. More resiny than anything else. Tiny biscuit notes.

M - fine

O - surprisingly good. Cheers.
