look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into narrow pint glass. Dark crystal clear gold with a lively head that dissipated leaving lovely thick lacing. Smell is all hops but it's tempered a bit with some sweetness, maybe mint or something. Tasted followed; hoppy but tempered. Crisp and clean, delicious.
