A: pours a murkey dark orange (perhaps dry hop haze) with a big creamy off-white/orangish head that stays put with superb lacing all the way down the glass
S: Good solid malt backbone of caramel. There is a dark raison character perhaps from some darker crystal additions. There is a wonderful spicy, citrusy american hope aroma
T: woodsy, piney, and citrus american hop flavors hit you right off the bat. A pronounced hop bitterness that is seamlessly balanced with the malt background. There is an initial malty sweetness followed by some caramel and an ever so slight toasted note. Again I get the raison note here (darker crystal malts?).
M: Finish is dry with some lingering hop flavors. Medium body with no astringency
D: Very drinkable. This is a very underrated style in my opinion. When done right its a perfect showcase for the best of both worlds, hops and malt. This is a very excellent example of the style and one that you could drink several pints of.

This is one of my favorite beers. This brew is incredibly refreshing. Though it isnt the easiest to pour from the tap, the appearance is amazing. It is a nice dark amber color. The head floats atop- an aesthetically pleasing addition. When it hits my mouth I think caramel. The toasted carmel hops are prime. It is a first class amber ale that all should experience.
Serving type: on-tap
