A darker color amber flows out the bottle. Sizeable beige meets off white head develops, in around the 1" variety. Aroma of malty roasted nuts. Aroma also imparts more hops than most amber ales. Honey like sweetness along with it.
Taste, still heavy handed with the hopping, and I mean that in a good way. Lots of caramel, not really much in the way of toffee. Syrupy, yet drinks like it is light bodied at the same time. Carbonation is appropriate for what this beer has going for it. Drinks like a hybrid of a pale ale, ipa and amber ale. Grapefruit and caramel equate to a bitterness that is far from a one trick pony. This stuff is a decent option if there is no nugget nectar around (taste is different than the nugget hop, but you get the idea).
The sweetness that comes out a little as it warms gives you a little light barleywine vibe, without the excess malt or alcohol.
Alcohol remains in the background. Wow, its almost 7%! Score! Butter and dry through the finish.
Thanks to the extra from someone in Wisconsin!
