I've never given a 100 before, but -

A - looks like a light beer but with shine and begging to be slurped down.

S - sounds weird but soapy, grapefruit & toffee (some sort of sweet that is light)

T - Piney, grapefruit, acorn, biscuit, clementine, bubblegum

M - Almost like a champagne. Light with a slight stickiness

Something about this beer ... I was looking for an IPA that wasn't over the top and had some balance but still gave you some great hop forward taste. This beer was overwhelmingly good. It was refreshing, tasteful, warming, comforting and amazingly delicious. I know this won't be a perfect experience for all; albeit, for me it just seemed so at the moment.
