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

Appearance: Pours an amber orange in color. A nice head forms with fairly good retention. Nice lacing.
Smell: Some citrus and hop notes with caramel notes in the background.
Taste: Citrus and hops balanced with a bit of caramel and tofee from the malt.
Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated with a medium mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.
Overall: This is a very balanced beer. A different take on a winter warmer. Very nice and worth trying.
