look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a 16oz shaker. beautiful thick off-white head. Thick lacing throughout tasting. Deep golden, copper honey color...almost a hint of red? (duh...copper).

Cutus, floral, hops on the nose with a hint of lemon zest.

Wonderful, full mouthfeel...not heavy but full. Perfect carbonation. Hints of honey and peaches upfront, sweet and balanced. Tasty malts and a nice hoppy finish. The hops are used sparingly and fade fast and clean.

This is such a great beer...so smooth, so tasty. Nothing overpowering...the citrus, sweet honey taste, malts and hops blend effortlessly...many flavors but blended so well that it almost seems to simple, to good to be real? Perfect everyday beer but alas...not an all yearer. Buy if you can find, drink if you have found and buy extra in May because that's when they stop production of this perfect little gem.

One of my all time favorites!
