Pours out bright gold and sits copper in the glass with a large, off-white head, fading slowly to a thin skim and a few minor lacings.
Aroma is very intriguing. There are the standard notes of an APA, citrus & grass, and a smooth and masking layer of basementy black pepper. The two pretty much cover anything else. It kind of smells like a bookstore, a good used-book store.
Flavor is akin to the aroma. Side by side pairins of light orangy citrus and black pepper. Mild spiciness is percieved but nothing to put you off. Mild hops bitterness towards the finish, but a rather lackluster malt performance.
Crisp in the mouth with moderate carbonation and light-medium body. Standard refreshing ale.
This is somewhat interesting, I supppose. For a spiced beer, of this direction, I'd say it's done quite well. I find this beer to be a rather challenging decision to make as a first run, main production item. How a young contract brewery, hopefully soon to be a brewery, can hope to survive on the inquisitive minds of consumers is beyond me. But hey, I'm all about new beer, so bring what you've got.

3.38/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Medium-dark amber. Clear. Short off-white head with good retention.
Smell - Mostly sweet light malts. Bready with a little caramel. Just a little citrus.
Taste - Flavor is a little more roasted than the aroma suggests. Light toast and caramel. Hoppier and grassier than I was expecting from the aroma. A little spiciness and a little heat in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Light-medium. Dry.
Overall - I like it fine, but this beer isn't as distinctive as I thought it would be. An entirely decent APA.
