Darker orange-copper color. Poured a once inch frothy off white head. I smell a touch of hop presence but mainly a lot of sweeter caramel malt notes pushing the hops out of the way. getting a crazy amount of barley grainy stuff too...like a touch of bud light. haha. smells good though. getting faint grassy hopes but this beer is suuuuper malty and sweet. not what i wanted since i like hop forward brews but this none the less is pretty tasty and could definitely drink one or two more. Nice creamy mouthfeel as well. It's a pretty solid beer but since I'm pro hop i wouldn't buy it again.

Pours a clear golden amber a large off white slowly fading head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, caramel malt with some grass and grain notes. Taste same as aroma with mild hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel, some grass and grain notes, fruity with floral citrus hops, has slightly tangy citrus aftertaste on the end. Overall a pretty solid brew for the style.

Very nice - Wish this were available in bottles, in the Delaware Valley. Drank it on tap at AJ Ryans Taproom, Syracuse.
