look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

tan-nish kind of head, dark caramel color and no carbonation.
hop aroma but not pungent or strong.
taste is mildly sweet with a biscuit flavor within the hop. I cannot find a date on the bottle, as someone else alluded to, but there does seem to be some hop blandness due to time on shelf going on.... a very nice brew, for sure, but not seeing the 'wow' as others have explained....
