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

A: Cloudy apricot hue with a thin film of a head; lacing is okay

S: Orange peel, tangerine; some peppery spice; also a musty, grainy--somewhat bready--undertone

T: Better complexities in the flavors than the aromas: some orange and other citrus with subtle cloves and pepper; they work well off the subtle grassy, grainy malt undertone

F: A bit thin--especially in the finish; there is a pleasant creaminess up front

O: A refreshing beer: I wish the aroma and mouth feel matched up with the flavors because it's actually pretty tasty
