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

22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Nice white head. Wisps and a collar.

Smell - Grassy pine hops. Sweet malts. Kinda musty.

Taste - Pine and grapefruit up front. Sweet caramel and then it dries out. Bitterness kicks in. Builds into a piney hop bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - A touch heavy, but drinkable. Quite bitter.

Overall - Pretty good beer. Tasty but bitter.
