Served in a standard pint glass with a nice head. Smell was awesome, strikingly vibrant hops with a hint of toffee and caramel. Appearance was dark amber. Taste was very hoppy but balanced. It started out with plenty of hops up front. Nice and oily hops with ia spicy bitterness and floral esters. As it warms though, the taste died down a bit. Not too much, but noticably. The floral earthy taste from the hops ceased and diffused into a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel was thick as one would expect this one to be. A little more watery once it warmed, but still good. A truly remarkable beer. I would definitely recommend this brew to friends and neighbors.

3.8/5 rDev -1.8%

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice darker red/amber hue with a thin one finger head that faded to leave a light quarter inch off white head and light lacing.
S - Aromas are heavier on the biscuit and caramel, though there is some Cascade hops tucked behind it. Lightly fruity malts, faint faint pine.
T - Taste is rather malty sweet and caramel heavy, bread/biscuit, floral hops, faint faint citrus with more sweetness towards the end. Very, very light pine bitterness.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit on the stickier side, decent carbonation, just drinks heavy.
O - Overall these guys wanted a malt/biscuit heavy Amber ale and well, the succeeded. That being said, this is not my kind of amber...I like much more hops in it. Not my thing.
