Enjoyed on tap at a local pizza joint; it's great to see local business supporting local business. In a pint glass it's a nice clear dark amber color with good carbonation threads. One finger whitish foam head fades fairly quickly leaving a good amount of sheeting and lace. Since it was windy out on the patio, it was hard to get the nose off of the pint glass but what I could detect was faintly bready with a sweetish caramel-type lightly toasted malt. In the mouth, there's crisp hoppiness out front with light caramel toasted malt and hints of buttery diacetyl. Piney hops then citrus, with a bitter, burnt finish and hints of alcohol. Mouth is nicely crisp, sharp, watery, quenching--complementary of style. Drinkability is good; I enjoyed two but the 6.1% ABV+ started catching up, making this a borderline sessionable brew.
Overall: A pretty complex and bold amber. I think the recipe has been tweaked since the previous review.
Serving type: on-tap

A: mahogany, ruby red, beige head, nice lace for a plastic cup.
S: sweet malts, caramel, bits of sticky happiness. Mild, but pleasant.
T: caramel, toasted malts, floral hops, mild bitterness.
