22oz bomber poured between a couple pint glasses.
Pours a red tinged copper with a nice khaki head. Good amount of lacing that leaves a solid ring after each sip.
Malty sweetness blasts up to kick your face in. Earthy, bisquity, caramely sweetness with a nice balance in the background with the weakened hops come out to play. Lite citrus notes.
Hops come out a bit heavier in the taste. Citrus hops play off the caramel sweet hops, giving a bit of balance to the "mondo". More graininess on the tongue through the finish. Tastes like candied tangerine peels, or something of the like. The IBU's really come out as it warms, so if you wanted some hops, you won't be disappointed.
Slide down quite easily. Bready taste resonates, making you want to wash it out rather than go for another. ABV will sneak up on you so take it easy.

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
