look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a slightly cloudy, bright golden orange color with apricot edges and two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap/ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with streaks of soapy lacing on the way down.

Somewhat tame aroma for a Three Floyds beer. Slightly floral perfume-y nose with delicate hop resins, subtle spice and a sweet malt backbone. Fresh cut grass and pine needle with peppery spice, light fruit esters and sweet caramel malt. Some bread, toffee, hibiscus flower, grainy cracker and boozy sweetness. Nothing really stands out but it has interesting spice and ester-y fruit notes that I don't usually associate with the style.

Slightly watered down light body with very delicate spicy and floral hop bitterness countered by zesty spice, faint malt sweetness and light fruit esters. Some grassy pine and earthy bitterness followed by floral hints of camomile and hibiscus. Fruit sweetness with apricot and tangerine followed by caramel malt, bread and caraway seed. All of the flavors are pretty delicate making this beer easy to drink. Some boozy heat/sweetness in the finish but the ABV is well hidden. Nothing really stands out making this a pretty average session beer.
