A - Amber. Wonderful textured khaki head that sticks around to the end.

S - a sweetness that is the perfect balance between citrusy/fruity hop and malt. Love the way they come together like that.

T - smells hoppier than it tastes. Faintly sweet caramel malt, tastefully restrained hop character. Good balance. Mild bitter aftertaste lingers.

M - close to water/neutral

O - While it is light bodied, that's the point. And for that, it has great flavor. I really appreciate the balance of malt and hops. This is a great job and would be the perfect session beer. Flavorful enough not to be boring, light enough to have pint after pint.

Snifter

A: Off-white head, crystal clear body. Ruby, licorice red color. Dark red up top.

S: Sharp candy sweetness with a pine, forrest hop aroma.

T/M: Tons of flavor for a sessional beer. A hop forward pale ale with a caramel sweetness from red ales. Sharp cherry, acrid tones. Light body to say the least.

O: Hop water with hints of caramel sweetness. Body feels more like water as drinking at room temperature.

Pours a deep red color with a good size white head that leaves sporadic lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, pine, and fruits. Taste is malt sweetness followed by citrus, earthy and piny hops and a lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel medium to light with easy drinkability.
