From the 12 fl. oz bottle. Sampled on April 19, 2014.

The pour is amber-copper with a robust cream colored head that never really fades entirely. Great clarity.

On the nose I am getting a pleasant atmosphere of butterscotch and floral hops but the hops tends to take over rather quickly.

The body is in the medium to full range but also creamy.

The taste begins with a delightful toasted biscuit malt character but then the earthy hops really kick in and take everything over to result in a dry finish. Nice beer that is worth a try.
