look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Clean, clear amber. No chill haze. Head is fine white, without much retention. Breath in, and your nose is filled with clean malty goodness and heavy raisin presence. Another inhalation brings piney, citric hops presence. Smells sweet and strong, with a gorgeous, ragged hop presence.

Medium bodied, with smooth light carbonation and a sweet caramel and raisin taste with some alcohol apparent. At first, the hop bitterness is subdued, keeping the pleasing brown ale-like maltiness at the forefront. As it goes, the hops become more intense, floral slightly, citric and piney. It gets harsher and more aggressive, finishing with an easy-going rasin and a lingering piney bitterness around the edges. Really a beautiful ale, all malt and hops, almost a defintion of what American microbrewing is about. Lovely.
