look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with good vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, floral, herbal, tropical, grassy, and caramel.

Taste: Same as above with mild hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, a little booze, medium carbonation, and some malty sweetness.

Overall: This mixture of hops are awesome. Tropical, herbal, and citrus. Alcohol is hidden well too.
