look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy, semi translucent orange with a foamy white head.

S: Nose is like an old ale. A really old ale. Alcohol, old malt and grains, orange, strong hop character, but overshadowed by the oldness of the smell, probably because it's three years old and under 9% abv. Also, I'm sure it's a very hoppy style.

T: Grass, pine, orange, bitter citric and floral notes.

M: Medium bodied, feels like an IPA.

O: It actually tastes good, but because of the age Im not willing to drink more than a couple small sips. I would imagine a fresh bottle being excellent, for which reason I am giving it these ratings.
