look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into standard pint glass from 12 oz. bottle.

Appearance: Pours a transparent, dark gold with a two finger tan-white head. The head is actually retaining quite well, leaving sticky, soppy residue on my glass. A very quality looking beer, for sure.

Smell: The first smell that whiffs into my nostrils is a strong scent of slightly spicy hops, followed by an almost equally strong malt backing. It is also very sweet smelling, almost like caramel, with a mild alcohol emittance. Overall, it's just very malty and hoppy.

Taste: Ah, the smell did not disappoint! Upon my first sip, I am greeted with a fairly strong and bitter hop kick, followed by that oh-so-recognizable malt that I was smelling. The hops are definitely very piney and just a little flowery, with notes of alcohol much stronger than it smelled. I may detect some citrus and cinnamon/nutmeg, but I'm not entirely certain. Regardless, it's delicious!

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel goes along very well with the taste. It is a medium-light bodied beer, with a moderate amount of carbonation. It is not overly thick or heavy, it's pretty great when compared to the taste profile.

Overall: This is just a great beer overall, a beer that would have no problem with both hops lovers and malt lovers. The almost perfect blend of flowery and spicy hops paired with the sweet, caramel-like malt is just awesome. Highly recommended for ANY fan of craft beer!
