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

A: Golden yellow/orange
S: Oranges and mangoes
T: A great tasting ale, the Zombie Dust of the West.
M: Good ABV, allows for great mouthfeel
D: Its drinkable at any time of day.

Overall: A-

As I previously stated, this beer is a notch below Zombie Dust, but on par with Heady Topper.
