Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance (4.25): Copper color with a finger of off white head

Smell (4.25): Toasted and caramel malts with slight undertones of earthy/spicy and citrus hops

Taste (4.25): Caramel malts upfront that fades into spicy citrus hops

Mouthfeel (3.75): Light medium body; As someone else mentioned, the bitterness doesn't exactly match the other aspects of the beer. Perhaps a bit too much carbonation?

Overall (4.1): Its a good beer, but nothing more than that. Considering that its available just about everywhere local to me, this would be a solid go to. Nice balance between malts and hops. Can't go wrong with that!
