Draft at The Boilermaker in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color that's almost brown with golden tangerine edges and a one finger, frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Slightly earthy aroma with grassy/soily hops countered by a sweet malt backbone.  Hints of grass and pine followed by caramel, toffee and biscuit.  Smells kind of bland,  like an average session beer.  Also, its a bit too malt forward and not very hoppy for the style.

Medium bodied with a stronger hop presence than the aroma suggests.  Earthy hops with some dry piny bitterness that lingers over the sweeter malt notes into a slight dry finish.  Nice hop flavor countered by biscuit, toffee, caramel and  toasted nut.  Well balanced but the malts don't get in the way of the hop flavor.  I was expecting much after the aroma but this is a pretty solid sessionable beer.
