look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Very lively, clear, beautiful orange/light amber color, borderline perfect head. Lacing nice and thick, especially for how clear the beer is (you would expect less head).
S: Not too impressed with the smell, not much really there but slight hoppy and orange peel presence.
T: A little bitter, but nothing's jumping out at me, seems flavors are subtle and I'd be reaching to define any strong characteristics. I do detect a small presence or orange peel (shocker!) and flowers, but the carbonation and bitterness seem to overpower the flavor.
M: I see some of the other reviews mention it being flat to little or no carbonation, I'm not getting that at all (perhaps a different batch/shipping/temps/etc). Mine is very well carbonated, and again, is overpowering some of the flavors.
D: Still very drinkable, maybe because I'm urning for more flavor but still enjoy the hops flavor that is detectable over the carbonation.
