4.33/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a snifter on 8/19/09
A - Hazy, dark amber/brown with swaths of ruby in the light. 1/2 inch head with decent retention. Solid & consistent lacing - impressive to say the least.
S - Floral & citrus hops - grapefruit & orange. Hints of something sugary, maybe a sweet bread of sorts. Every now & then I get a whiff of soapy detergent.
T - Boutique of floral hops up front. Not particularly bitter, though it does have a decent bit of citrus & pine. Some toasty malts are waiting in the depths for this beer to warm.
M - Medium body with good carbonation. Resiny feel on the tongue. There is a hint of alcohol slickness & heat that gives a marginal numbing effect.
D - Very drinkable. Fine balance between robust hops, mild bitterness, malts & alcohol potency.

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
