Initial burst of malty, floral and hoppy aroma that became more subtle after a few seconds and included hints of caramel and vanilla. Clear, amber/brown color with frothy tan head that dissipated into a minimal head fairly quickly. Malty, roasted flavors with some floral hop character and slight caramel. With each sip, there was a powerful spike of bitterness that only lasted a second and settled into a pretty well balanced flavor. Medium carbonation. Medium-bodied.

Poured a nice dark molasses ruby color. Thick foam that could be eaten with a spoon leaves lacing all the way down the glass.

Smells of strong hops and brown sugar. What jumps out is the intensity of the smell. Not expecting that.

Are you sure this is under 5%? There is just WAY too much flavor for that little alcohol. Tastes like Arrogant Bastard's little brother. But the little brother is still a badass MMA fighter just in a lighter division. Aggressive hop profile here and me likey!!

Mouthfeel slacks off a little. A teeny bit too watery but that just makes it all the easier to drink.

I love this beer. Just what I'm after. Lots of flavor and something I can have more than 2 of and not need a nap. More like this please.

The somewhat low ABV is pretty apparent in this one. It's not bad, but it felt and tasted a bit weak to me.
