20 oz imperial pint in a traditional english pint glass
Beer arrived medium redish copper with thin film for a head. No lacing at all.
Smell was pretty hoppy, with strong citrus scents and very little else.
I was mildly disapointed with the flavor of this beer. Large hop presence in the beginning, almost as much as an big IPA, but after that, there seemed to be very little flavor to back it up. The finish especially seemed to be lacking any substantial flavor at all.
Now, I know some folks who swear that this is one of the finest brews ever created and may be the reason that God gave us hops to begin with. And that's fine. For me, I'll pass on this one from now on.

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.
