It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber. A finger of off-white head flattens soon to frothy surface pips. Fingers of lacing trace the inside of the glass.

The aroma brings a light air of toasted malt along with a floral hop perfume. A mellow spiciness drifts softly as well, in time with an understated tempo of alcohol.

Upon tasting, the malt is considerably more assertive, flashing toasty sweet and with touches of caramel and distant berry, or maybe cherry. A very casual hop florality and spiciness pairing flits peripherally. The finish is a straightforward march to a dry, lingering bitterness. It's very simple, and quite tasty for that simplicity.

Between light and medium bodied, it manages to lay feathery on the palate in a pillowy coating.

OK, so maybe this won't exactly stand out in a crowd, but it's certainly enjoyable while you're drinking it. It's not the kind of profile that conjures fond memories later on, but the fun is in the here and now. The easy nature and mellow elements, not to mention the well-disguised ABV, make this a pleasure to drink. So if nothing else, I'll remember I like it enough to willingly have it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Deep amber. Even bronze-like. Thin off-white head. Not too much lacing.

S: Very bready and earthy. Mineraly. When cold, you smell the hops more, but as it warms, it brings out the more malty and earthy tones.

T: Less hops than I expected. Quite peaty at first and goes to the dark bready and malt flavors. Slighty abrasive, but in a good way.

M: Medium to light bodied. Light carbonation. Not too bad. Not to heavy on the stomach.

O: Not too bad. A decent offering from my favorite brewery. It's nice to know that they can make something that's not bombarded by hops. Personally, it strongly reminds me of a scotch ale because of the very earthy and peaty tones. For one of my first copper ales, I like it. Definitely recommended.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/26/2014. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and caramel/bready malts; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Slight amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and caramel/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good balance of citrus/floral hops and caramel/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
