Pours a copper color or burnt orange, clear brew. Head is big and falls slow to a cap that lasts the whole beer, lots of nice sheet lace left behind.

Aroma is lots of toasted caramel with good fruit notes. Fruit coming from the malt and good citrus hops. Also some light pine notes mingled in for good measure.

Taste is like the nose good caramel malt sweetness with added sugars light molasses or brown sugar like but not quite that heavy. The good sweetness is backed by enough hops to keep it far from cloying, Citrus and pine mingled to balance it out but still remain sweet. Alcohol in not a factor well hidden at almost 10%.

Mouthfeel is is a big solid medium with nice smooth level carbonation. Nice feel doesn't seem like an 10% brew.

Overall I am enjoying this one, very favorable and tasty.
