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

look; pale golden orange with lots of tiny bubbles. first normal pour resulted in head rapidly foaming over glass rim for half a glass of beer. A much more careful pour resulted in a foamy 4" head. leaves thin sticky lacing
smell; apricot hops and malt, some citrus, a little bit of cherry when the head calms down
taste; dry hoppy grapefruit up front with grass, tart cherry and wood blending in, medium light malt, nicely balanced
feel; crisp, fresh, lots of carbonation, almost seltzer level. Works for this beer.
overall; a nice very live and entertaining hoppy fruity bitter pale ale. a lot going on but balanced, nothing out of control except maybe the head.

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

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, hazy, gold in color

Smell: citrus hops with wheaty bread

Taste: orange, lemon zest, light grapefruit, and light toasted malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with bry bitter backbone and dry end, light body, high carbonation

Overall: A very juicy and tasty English IPA. Bitter but not overly so. A nice beer to sit with. I like others from Mystic better, but this is solid.
