7.1%, according to the website...
dark(er) color than expected for the smell i was getting.... thin foam....
smell is hop-py, for certain, with the amber color.
taste is light hops, some malt in the mix, some bitterness but easy to drink.
overall, decent, semi-sessionable.... nothing overly impressive....

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Poured on-tap in a pint glass at the pint house in Fullerton, CA.

A- Half a finger white head. Medium retention. Deep orange-brown color and some watery lacing.

S- Darker malts. Medium bodied hops.

T- Bitter hops and dark malts. Finishes surprisingly watery and bitter.

M- Unfortunately watery and kind of unappealing.

O- Suffers from watery feel and flavor. Wouldn't do again.

Draft at the brewery.

Pours a hazy, golden apricot color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace.

Earthy hop aroma with lots of malt sweetness. Hints of caramel, toffee, hazelnut and subtle fruit countered by floral, piney hops.

Medium bodied with a blast of dry, bitter hops that linger over the sweeter malt notes into a dry finish.  Much hoppier than the nose suggests with lots of dank pine needle flavor that's countered by caramel, toffee, nut and light fruit. Finishes dry. A bit thin but easy to drink and flavorful.
