Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours an orangeish medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of bubbly surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Sweet cereal grain malt with a moderate hop presence and a bit of booze on the back end.

T- Bready malt that's slightly sweet with a nice hop balance. Bitterness is there and lingers a bit but isn't quite strong enough to necessarily cross over into IPA territory. Drinkable and flavorful enough to keep me sipping.

M- A bit dry from the hops and also quite viscous. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the full side.

O- I wasn't expecting too much from this but it's pretty tasty.

Serving type: can

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Very clear deep rich gold color with one finger of foamy white head, little lacing.
S - Big caramel malt, a little citrus, some floral notes, a hint of toasted or nutty kinda malt too.
T - Big mix of malt, some really off nutty and bitter flavor, earthy hops, a little citrus zest.
M - Chewy and really hangs on to your palate.
O - Just ok, kinda really odd in some places, malt its a bit over-the-top
