Pours a deep amber with off white head and good lacing
Aroma- some faint tropical fruit, toast, caramel, cinnamon(as it warms), grain
Taste- not incredibly vibrant, but lots of flavor. Tropical and citrus hop notes, a touch of stone fruit, toffee and caramel malt, some spice, finishes toasty with caramel malt and some spicy and fruity hop zest
Feel- very nice medium bodied, balanced, subtle carbonation
This is a great beer, I'm glad SN added it to the fleet, it's a nice variation on their standard hoppy goodness. I do wish that this was a little... brasher, this is is a great tasty drinkable beer. I am a fan of Tumbler, but with some caramel malt toastiness and hops, this is another great welcome fall offering- a great hoppy alternative to the plethora of Oktoberfest and pumpkin blah.
