look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the 650ml. bottle into a over-sized wine glass.

The color is a somewhat clear, deep orange with two finger of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a very airy citrus hop aroma that reminds me a little of Pliny. There is a grassy aroma also coming up to meet my nose as well and that brings some malty sweetness with it as well.

The taste pops out and is creamy and sugary at first. The second sip has a big earthy taste to it with some bitterness wrapped in some citrus flavor. I am reminded of spree candy and how sweet they seem to be but are also a little bitter as well.

This beer really gives you some thing to talk about. The feel is slightly heavy but has a good amount of carbonation to wash away some bitterness and make light of the amount of alcohol in this beer. It seems to cushion the feel of this beer as it goes down so it feels smooth and not too big. IT has a pleasant bitterness and not a slam that rocks you off your foundation. One of the more well craft beers I have had. This beer has it in spades.
