Pours a medium/dark reddish copper color with a nicely sized tan head that has great retention and leaves a lot of fine lacing.
Aroma is piney with citrus and tropical fruits upfront. A slight malt presence shows up in the background.
Taste starts off very piney once again. Some grapefruit and orange are evident followed by pineapple and a little mango toward the end. The last taste reveals notes of caramel that linger on into the finish.
Full bodied with medium carbonation. Very enjoyable. The alcohol can be felt a little bit toward the end, but for the most part isn't too noticeable. Would have again.

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
