A: Pours a cloudy dark copper, orange. 4 finger khaki head dies down to a solid 1 finger head in a couple minutes. Nice lacing. Overall, excellent.
S: Sharp hops first thing noticed, some grassy herbalness, light bread crust malts. Quite good.
T: Prickly bitterness from the hops, pleasantly bitter, malt heavy with sort of "cantaloupe melon" background. Finishes clean with hop bitterness lasting. Very nice!
M: Again slightly prickly hop sensation, medium heaviness on the tongue, moderately carbonated, slightly oily. Near perfect for the style. Very well balanced, not as flat and oily as some others in the style.
O: I reside in Junction City, not far from this brewery and that is why I decided to give this a try. I'm glad I did. I always enjoyed ESP/IPA style beers on occasion, but I can't remember having one this balanced and flavorful. I will be picking some more of this up for sure!

3.81/5 rDev -1.3%
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a spumous head; excellent stickage with a nice curtain of lace
Smell: Caramel, pipe tobacco and stone fruit tones with earthy hops underpinning
Taste: Caramel and stone fruit flavors, up front, with tobacco and earthy hop bitterness building through the middle; the finish is balanced and somewhat sweet
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: This can is a little past the "best by" date so that may account for the lack of aggressive hop flavors; much more in the ESB than IPA categories to my palate

16oz. can: Poured a brilliant clear amber with tall pillowy head. Sparkling. A beautiful beer. Aroma of multi-grain malt, orange juice and bread and coriander. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Sweetness gradually gives way to an earthy bitterness (pine mostly). Bitterness really digs in on the finish with mountainous floral qualities. Medium body that seems lighter than it is because of the high carbonation. A delight to the tongue. An interesting beer. More similar to an English IPA than an ESB. A little less raucous hops might be closer to the imperial ESB label. I liked it though.

Big light tan head slowly settles to a nice lacing above a well carbonated copper honey colored beer that one can just see the shadows of his figures through.
Aroma is filled with dark fruits, caramel malts, bitter notes, very light alcohol and some other aspects I don't recognize.
The taste is varied but to me doesn't live up to the aroma. Lighter caramel malts with very light dark fruits or grasses allow some other very subtle tastes to round out a balanced lighter taste.
A very light dryish aspect to the aftertaste of this medium bodied beer.
I don't think the taste of this beer warrants paying more for it. I did like the fact that nothing was overbearing with the taste, just the fact that for the price there should have been more taste.
