Malty, brown sugary and fresh, wet hops. Good, beer with strong malt characteristics. I personally like a light wet hop beer like deschutes fresh squeezed, but this is good and rich beer in cold weather

Enormous fluffy off-white/beige head, Great retention and thick clumpy lacing. Brew is a surprisingly dark copper Amber, and very clear.

Aroma is fairly subdued, with notes of Caramel, Brown sugar, and a hop profile that features Pine, grassy earthy notes, grapes, and citrus.

Exceptionally well balanced hoppy ale. Malt profile is thick and grainy: Caramel and pale, chewy grains. Hops are well integrated, and represent the flavor aroma quite well: Earth, grass, pine, and just a very faint trace of grapefruit peel.

Very lively brew with no sting; exceptional drinkability. This brew disappears before you even notice.

I thought nothing about this beer, except perhaps it's appearance blew me away, and then I noticed I needed to refill my glass. There are no crazy flavors, aromas, or adjuncts. It's just a damn good beer.

Excellent full bodied beer. There is a toasted malt flavor with a hint of caramel in the middle. The start and finish are balanced hoppy goodness. The strong flavors do not disappoint.
