A- a clear deep amber. The foamy-ish white head has amazing retention aided by the steady contribution of carbonation.

S- big pine hops dominates with some very subtle grapefruit notes

T- pine hops is the order of the day. It dominates throughout and overpowers pretty much everything else. It's good, but it's just one note.

M-a faint tickle of carbonation in an otherwise smooth and thinner ale

O-it's a good but not great amber. I'd like more depth.

Apperance - An excellent dark brown, through which some line shines. Similar to a nice iced tea color

Smell- A crisp smell that gives you some freshness

Taste - Fantastic. Finishes with an uplifting freshness.

Mouthfeel - Light carbonation, excellently smooth. Feels great

Overall - A very solid beer. A fall beer if ever there was one.

Pours a clear mahogany, with a creamy off-white head. Smells of pinecones, and a hint of oak. Taste begins with a sharp grapefruit peel bite, then some rye bread, and finishes with a long piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall an excellent amber ale. It is really a nice beer for hop-heads, it is as hoppy as some of the new 'session' IPA's ive had.

A- Beautiful dark amber, almost red color. Constant stream of bubbles. 1/2 finger head with good lacing.
S- Grapefruit, tropical fruit, grass, pine. Pretty inviting.
T- Piney hops, caramel, and tropical fruit up front, followed by sweet grapefruit, grapefruit rind, and maybe a touch of lemon. Subtle lingering pine bitterness.
M- Medium, creamy body with crisp carbonation. Slightly oily finish with nice piney bitterness.
O- This is a pretty good beer. Very good session beer. Not the strongest flavors in the world, but excellent for what it is.
