Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Nose shows some spicy and grapefruit-like hops along with a grainy malt character.
Flavours include straw, popcorn, spicy hops, grainy malt and herbal notes. Pretty weird stuff there, a couple of big off-flavours.

Oops...

Didn't check what style this was and drinking immediately after a Riverside 44 doesn't help the cause.

A - deep red, short lived head. Minimal lacing.

S - muted, earthy dry hop driven.

T - also, quite earthy and dry, more English IPA style than American Amber. Toffee dominant. Malt balance and dry finish.

M - lightly carbonated and light to medium weight. Given relatively ABV, no hint of that.

O - more OK than anything else. Was expecting more zest and freshness given can.
