look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a pale yellow in the glass. Nice head at pour dissipates to almost nothing and little lacing. Yet somehow very exciting in a large snifter glass.

S: Citrus, farm spices but a fresh aroma.

T: Good spicing. Nice flavor differential from front to back - good spicing, lemon, plentiful hops.

M: Full but somewhat flat - could be the tap.

O: Great brew.
