look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam. Not too bad.

Smell: strong hop aroma which is mostly floral but has some citrusy and earthy character too. It works for me!

Taste: caramelly malt flavor with a big hop character which is floral, green and a little dank. Bitterness is a little light for the style but OK. Not too bad, but kind of muddled.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a great carbonation and creaminess. Bam!

Overall: the flavor is muddled and not well balanced in my opinion. Not a terrible beer, but also not one that really grabs me.

Pour is dark copper, strong haze and a dense yellowish white head with some large bubbles. Nose is strong pine, light citrus, notes of caramel and a touch of cardboard. Taste has more pine, cardboard, lots of malt, caramel, brown sugar, a touch sticky. Full bodied with assertive carb. Some residuals left.
