Appearance
Copper, clear, 2 cm head when poured, consistent carbonation throughout.

Smell
Sweet, floral and piney/honey

Taste
Hits more towards back of the tongue and roof of mouth, a bit sweeter than balanced.

Mouthfeel
Light, pops a bit I guess…

Overall
Solid beer, not great enough that it would be at the top of my list for a pick when sitting down for a strong double IPA.
