look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours very clear light amber with sediment that looks like I shook up a snow globe, except the snow is just suspended, probably the most unusual pours I have seen... and I like it. 2" fluffy head with great lacing. Smell is alcohol and sweet coriander. Tastes like the smell except not a huge alcohol flavor. Well balanced grapefruit, malt, and hop. Mouthfeel is smooth and sweet with a light bitter at the end.

Overall, this is the last beer from a case I got last spring. An excellent beer I should have drank up fresh. I don't think the age has done anything for this one and possibly has hurt the flavor. Still it's very good today, but my next case will be gone before the the 4th of July.
