A: medium amber with orange hues; slightly hazed; fingers-thick tan head, left some light lace

S: piney, wet woods, herbal and earthy; grapefruity; some passionfruit and apricot-like sweetness

T: sweet clean malt flavor, suggestions of nuttiness, oak, and fresh barley; lots of flavor, rich and roasted, lightly toasted, bitter hops dancing throughout, with pine and dark citrus

M: slick, smooth, cool, and briefly coating; drying roasted finish

O: a very rewarding brew, and recommended

Enjoyed on draught in a college improv bar in Minneapolis.
Pours an unexpected red amber with nice clarity. Fine carbonation, but only a thin fleeting head.
The nose highlights pine and spiced apples and pears on a foundation of malt. Hay and raisin come through, as well. Very complex--almost intoxicating in itself before a sip.
Clean and bronzey with dried stone and harvest fruits bonded to an early sweet caramel note. Then grapefruit and pine rush into a bright, bitter peak. It falls into an oily metallic resin finish.
Clean and light at the start. Opens into medium body balanced nicely with carbonation. Just a bit more heft and chew would be nice.
Thicker and weightier would be absolutely stellar. But this is a great craft with complex flavor together with very easy drinkability for its size.
