12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Copper-tinged Red with 2 fingers of creamy, off-white head that leaves behind some nice lacing. Excellent clarity with good retention. Low carbonation.

Nose
Navel orange, tangerine, pine, toffee and spicy rye.

Taste
Light flavors of tangerine and candied orange. Rich doses of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Some nuttiness. The back end dries up with spicy rye and resinous pine.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, bitter and dry.

Overall
I haven't had this is a really long time. I remember a lot more hop action which leads me to believe this is an old bottle. It's still really good, but it definitely deserves a fresher review.
