look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours cloudy light orange. A scant finger of head and lacing like a splash of white color on the sides of the glass.

S- Hoppy, a bit sulfury, a bit chalky. Besides the strong hop notes, this isn't an awesome smelling beer. But luckily the hops are pretty strong.

T- Lots and lots of hops- lime, grass, lemon, tangerine. I'd say a lot of citrus with a splash of green. There more earthy on the back of the roof of my mouth, but besdies that, pretty citrusy. And very powerful. I was very surprised to see this was barely over 5% alcohol, as it has the taste of a much stronger beer.

M- Just the right amount of bitterness for my tastebuds. While the sweet flavors aren't really there, there is enough sweetness to mellow out the bitter, so that works.

O- Very nice stuff. A pleasant drinker with a powerful hop punch without a ton of alcohol.
