look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- A spotty two finger head. A slightly cloudy amber hue.

Smell- A very bready hops aroma with a hint of alcohol.

Taste- Served at room temperature so the hops and grain taste was very well defined. Slight lemon note at the end.

Mouthfeel- A bitter palate but still light enough to to consume amd not taste the hops the next morning.

Drinkability- Worth getting a couple of pints, but wouldn't be one of my sessions beers.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a hazy orangish-brown body with a soapy foam on top with a light tan hue. No carbonation in sight.

S- The smell of pine hops is soft with a bit of resin note in the hops also.

T- The taste of sweet tea has a sour start but then turns into the big hops flavors. There are notes of big juicy grapefruit with a pine note and some ginger spice in the finish. There is some orange note as I keep drinking and the spicy finish has a fusel alcohol note also.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with a soft alcohol heat in the finish.

D- This beer was on cask but it was served at room temp or a bit warmer. It did give a bit or an odd flavor with the sweet tea notes but that might have been the warmth.
