Don't believe the labeling, this is a golden-colored "sessionable" beer...but with a nearly 9% ABV you may need to videotape your session to remember it.
Appears to be something other than a red or amber, a peachy lager color.
The aroma is a light malt, with some kind of fleshy fruit... but not cloying. I also get a hop kick with a deep inhalation.
The taste of this beer invites another, quickly. You can consume this beer faster than you really should because you can't pick up the ABV at all. Be careful standing up, though!
The only beer that MIGHT beat this for mouthfeel is La Fin du Monde... but a tie goes to the runner. And I'm running for more of this beer.
Overall, I am buying more. Anyone can drink this. Amateurs and serious beer lovers will welcome this brew.

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
