A: Very hazy gold with lots of fine streams of carbonation, huge billowing head suggestive of high alpha acids. I already see some nasty sunken debris at the bottom of my glass, and I've only poured about 15% of the bottle. Dislike the Microsoft Word font on the label, and the art style is a little '95 graphics-esque, but on the whole it's a pleasing image. On the upshot, some things are great, some... no.

S: Wow, fragrant with herbs, some mild fruit (honeydew & cantaloupe). Nice and floral, but probably overdone for the style.

T: I swear I taste cinnamon, followed by apple and melon. Fades away to muddled chalky yeast, a sad note with which to finish.

F: Sure.

O: I wish they made candles with its aroma, and the flavor was very good until then end. Definitely a fun summer brew, if it was more economical than a bomber I might return.
