look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a medium bown color. The white head is small and dissolves too fast. The lacing is nice though and the carbonation looks good.

Smell: Sweet malt like a caramel taffy smell.

Taste: Nice floral hop/sweet malt balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, ok carbonation.

I really like this beer. It's sweet and hoppy at the same time. Very flavorfull. I'll be drinking this from time to time.

A - Pours a beautiful dark orange/amber color, almost ruby. Medium to small head with light lacing.
S - Hop characters present on the nose, some citrus and honey smells.
T - Well balanced, picking up both malt & hop profiles fairly evenly. Slight grapefruit and grassy flavors present as well.
M - Light body with low carbonation, goes down nice and smooth.
O - An OK brew, not bad but not great, expected a little more flavor profile from LHB on this one.
