look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, pine, floral hops and some caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, piney resins, floral hops, bready malts and some sweet caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.
