look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22oz bottle. Deep clear copper with a rich off-white head. This retains with a smooth creaminess that drenches the sides of the glass with thick sticky lace. The aroma smells of fresh pine and green citrus, with a malty combo of burnt grains and sticky sweetness behind it. The taste is similar, with a fresh blast of citrus and resin that sits against a backbone of sweet caramel and toasted graininess. Pine and bitterness really stick hard in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and prickly on the tongue but then more oily and smooth underneath which combines with a well hid ABV to keep this drinking pretty darn easy. This is a nicely done American Amber with the type of aggressive hop character and an equally assertive malt presence that I really go for in the style. I’m glad I picked this one up.

Pours into an imperial pint glass a rich clear copper/bronze with a nice tightly formed one finger off white head atop.Aromas are nutty and doughy with with mild earthy and leafy hops.Not overly sweet on the palate with nutty malt flavors at the onset,some more of the bread dough and earthy somewhat spicy hops in the finish.It's not a big left coast hopped up red but it's a solid beer,nice job.
