look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Picked up a 24 ounce bottle. (I love the label)

A: This pours an amber color leaning on the redder tint side. Slight haziness, the head and retention were stunning ( a solid two-finger height with the head never dissapperaing on me)

S: The smell is an aromatic mixture of malt, hops with floral/hint of citrus notes. My craft beer journey is just somewhat starting, but so far the aroma from this beer surpasses all others.

T: My favorite part! Where to start? This has a bold taste starts off with a perfect balance of malt and hops and finishes nearly the same. The caramel notes shine in this beer with a slight sweetness but not overpowering.

M: Very smooth, the carbonation is balanced and very refreshing.

O: IMO this beer gets a rating of 5, everything about this beer is great, its easy to drink, balanced and the taste is amazing. I cant wait to try Northern Hemisphere in the fall.
