look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Milky golden straw, wispy lacing, slight foamy head reduces to form circular colonies of froth- reminds me of a petri dish. Colorful bottle artwork, with esoteric symbolism; just looking at it gets me excited.

S: Really fantastic. Tropical fruit, coriander, a touch of yeast and vanilla, maybe some bread in there too.

T: The yeast/hops combination pulls through here, which gives it an overly earthy/metallic note, but the (to my senses) more favorable flavors of fruit and spice are still significant.

M: Light bodied, refreshing. Carbonation is more mild than I would have expected.

O: Pretty darn good, I would prefer a few things to be tweaked, but it's their interpretation, and I can still appreciate the originality. I'll probably return.

Beer pours gold in color. No haze. Sticky white head that turns into good lacing around the glass. Small bubbles rise to the surface.

Spice and phenols in the aroma. Not too overpowering.

Sweet with a medicinal and hoppy finish. Nice and crisp at the end.

Medium mouthfeel.

overall a good beer. I really like the hops with the spice in the finish. The only mark against it is that it is somewhat medicinal.
