12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/9/2014. Pours lightly cloudy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, bread, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with well balanced notes of dark/bready malt and citrus hops; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and citrus hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and citrus hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Appearance

A smooth medium nut brown head. Heavy lacing and a wonderful non-transparent honeyed brown color with different enticing hues in the light

Nose

Fresh hops – not citrusy though which I really like and it is a refreshing and welcomed change. Phenomenal med-malt nose behind the hops accompanied by caramel and nuts

Palate

Refreshing and palate cleansing hop character with a long and delicious finish full of hops and slight caramel. Notes of caramel malt, orange, lemon, vegetal notes and a medium mouth-feel which is nice and smooth. Also has low carbonation which suits it very well.

Overall

I really enjoyed this, it was easy drinking, has a fresh hop cone taste, possessed strong, bold flavors and I found that it didn’t taste like a traditional Red-Style beer which I enjoy. It was also had a strong hop presence (in case you hadn’t noticed) that didn’t balance the beer, but accompanied the subtle- yet rich and creamy malt pretense.
