look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - One finger creamy head. Good retention. Small bubbles. Light lacing. Pretty cloudy amber/orange color.

S - Malty sweet smell. Perfumey smell with hints of flowers, peach, tangy orange, passion fruit, grapefruit.

T - Not sweet like the smell. Initial front is fairly bitter, but not overly so. Then there is a bit of fruitiness (e.g. orange peel) that takes over, followed by a bitter finish.

M - Medium thickness. Alcohol makes it's presence felt, but not too strong.

O - Overall the beer seems to be a quality beer, just not exactly my style. I really like the smell, but the taste, while complex, is not my "cup of tea", but seems to be really good for that style of beer. I am only slightly disappointed because I expected some of the sweetness from the amazing smell to carry over into the taste, but it barely did. Overall it seems to be a very good, very quality beer, just not really my style taste-wise.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance; color is a clear gold. pours a large amount of white head that sticks around for awhile until eventually settling into spotted lacing.

smell; very enticing aroma. lots of floral notes, as well as light fruitiness and faint citrus.

taste; floral, hint of biscuit, hint of spice, slightly citrusy.

mouthfeel; very smooth. medium carbonation, light body, very moist.

overall; very versatile, tasty beer. would buy again.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head, lots of carbonation. Smell is of hops, citrus. Taste is hoppy, bitter, citrus, a touch of resin. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while it didn't quite live up to the hype, it is a good quality beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- settles into a nice thin head against a golren- haze of a body. Mild lacing.

S-spring. A bouquet of mid-season flora with a hint of lemon and tangerine. Immense. Mild grapefruit in the background with a definite sense of citra hops.

T- the taste hits on that same citrus vibe with some herbal notes... much like a mix between lemongrass and mint. Coriander and rosemary subside behind a lush flow of cascades.

M- bright with good carbonation.

O- a nice mix of citrus and hops... not stunning, but s great vibe for the price. Very spring, very supported.
