look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Got this on nitro-tap at the Tower District location.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy brownish-orange with bright shades of red and amber. Eggshell-colored head is very rich and creamy. Nitrogen pruduces a gorgeous cascading effect between the body and head of the brew. Lacing is fantastic: thick and layered, almost "like a timeline".

Smell: Toffee, pine and biscuit malts. A pretty earthy undertone to it all.

Taste: Biscuits, toasted malts, toffee/caramel, moist pine, and a crisp, earthy hop finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, creamy, and pretty smooth. Aftertaste is mild and pleasant, and finish is somewhat crisp, somewhat frothy.

Drinkability: This was awesome! Possibly the best beer I've had from Sequoia. So good that I got three of 'em. Mildly bitter, somewhat sweet, and extremely sessionable.
