look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Apearance - Pours a hazy copper brown with a 3 finger rocky, white head with good staying power and leaves some awesome lacing.

Nose- Citrus hops with a caramelly, biscuity malt profile. A hint of spiciness intrigues me.

Palate- hops are less prevalent on the palate than the nose. Here the dark caramel, almost chocolate malt shines through.

Mouthfeel- I could have gone for just a tad more body, but other wise very well built.

Drinkability- Goes down easy.

3.65/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint Glass."

A: Nice dark amber red with hints of orange and brown. Significant head, little lacing, nice appearance.

S: Wheats, malts, lots of hops. Kind of a sweet caramel on top.

T: Initial flavor is standard for an amber, but it has a significantly large hoppy bitterness. Sweet caramel notes and lots of good roasted malt. Significant bitter aftertaste.

M: Smooth, crip and not too rich but drinkable.

O: Not a bad selection. It's a Boston Lager with more hops. Quite a nice, flavorful beer that's full of malt, caramel and hops. Solid B+.
