Pours a red hazy amber with a creamy head.
Up front assualt of burning hops, hard to distinguish too many hop flavours amongst the heavy bitterness. Smooth light hint of chocolate/toffee/caramel can be detected behind the bitterness. A nice smooth malt backbone is revealed as the bitterness makes itself at home on your palate, although I would much prefer it to be a little lighter on the IBUs as the balance doesnt seem right.
Not a bad drop if i say so myself. A comfort after a not so successful home brewing session today.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

I absolutely love the color of this amber with its bright brassy highlights and sturdy hue. It loses points, though, with an unimpressive head of this thin fleeting fizz and a ton of clinging carbonation bubbles.
The nose is malty, nutty, maybe pecans and a bit of grain. There's hints of roast and a bit of tea leaf.
The flavors are more roasted, more nutty, and filled with pecans. The roasted flavor is dry and the malts are filled with barley, tea leaf and grain.
The feel is exceptionally dry but also thin and watery.
This is a good example of the style with all the profile pieces I want in an Amber. My only regret, and it's small, is that the thin watery feel doesn't allow the flavor to truly blossom.
