look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
A- Pours a rich cloudy orange with a finger of solid foam. Some pretty strong rings of lacing as I drain the glass.
S- My nose is a bit clogged today but I do get honey, white wheat bread, pine sap, clementines.
T- Taste is hoppier than the aroma, though it almost seems faded from the first bottle of the sixer I had. Could that be after only a few weeks? Some honey and bread, piny. My burps give a berry flavor- strawberries especially.
M- Really nice bitter/ sweet balance. Goes down pretty easy. This aspect of the beer is really nice.
O- I remember the hops being fresher, brighter, and most of all stronger in this beer, so maybe this isn't the most fair review, but then again maybe since I didn't stop to think enough to write a review before it was all in my head. But even faded it's still a tasty beer, and an easy drinker.
