I had this on tap at Union Jack's on the Manatawny. It came in a pint glass.
Arrived a mostly clear red with light brown tints. A nice 2 finger head of off-white foam rests on top. This is a pretty beer. The head eventually falls to islands and a ring, with very good lacing.
Aroma is grassy hops, big and bold, with a good caramel malt smell right there. Some faintly fruity smells, but the grassy hops are strong.
Flavor is grassy hops right up front, followed by a fairly intense hop bitterness, and caramel/toffee candy. Maybe just a wee bit thin in mid-sip, but still pretty damn good. Not much residual sweetness. Aftertaste is a nice combo of grass and bitter and caramel.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but dries out a little in mid-sip. Carbonation is medium, and adds a nice bite to the beer. Finish is on the dry side.
This, to me, is a session beer par excellence. It's complex, not too strong, and tasty as a sumbitch.

330mL bottle, BB date June 2014. Got it just in time!
A - attractive burgundy colour, pours a thick frothy head that fades into a lumpy pale brown lacing.
S - floral (lavender) hops and resin, with a strong honey/molasses whiff.
T - dry hopping is apparent straight away - strong hoppy bitterness with flavours of pine and faint caramel and roasted malt backdrop. Bitterness slightly edges the malts in this one.
M - medium carbonation, dry texture, light to medium body. crisp finish.
O - nice mix of roasted malts and dry hopping, would easily drink again.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep reddish copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, light toffee, and floral/toast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant amber ale. Good balance of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
