3.7/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Amber-red and slightly hazy. Pours a khaki head that sticks around for a while and laces great.

S: Smells quite hoppy with citrus and pine. Smells really fresh and with a sweet note throughout representing the malts.

T: Tastes like a hopped up american red. It's actually very reminiscent of Lakefront's Fixed Gear, and it is, naturally, lighter in body and taste than that. Mainly showcases the hops, and it is not too bitter. Malt is just barely in the taste.

M: Light. Medium-low carbonation. Just a bit watery, but in a refreshing kind of way. This was to be expected given the ABV.

In conclusion, this beer, at 4.4%, would make an excellent session beer. It is easy to drink, but flavorful, and you can finish a six pack without toppling over. Totally respectable, but I wish the price was lower.

12oz bottle poured into a Stone pairing glass.

A - On the dark side of amber, a slight head that is an off white in color and dissipates quickly leaves a slight lacing.

S - There is a floral smell with a hint of hops and a pine needle smell. there is some sugar flavor to go with this beer.

T - It starts off with a sweet taste that quickly becomes pine like maybe a hint of citrus and a toasted coffee taste that does not have much of an after taste.

M - there is a medium bodied feel to this beer with average amount of carbonation that leads into the malty creamy taste that i enjoy so much.

D/O - I would drink this beer again it is a relatively hoppy beer that is not without its faults but is a quality beer that i enjoyed.
