Beautiful dark amber toffee colored ale. Huge head on the pour maintains a half finger of froth throughout the drink and blankets the glass in rich, sturdy foam.
Toasty wheat and rye aroma, lots of malt character. Piney, earthy hop tones. Exceptional balance and plenty to savor in the nose.
Flavor is malty, earthy, piney, toasty, spicy and sweet all at the same time without anyone getting out of line.
Sturdy medium to full body. Plenty of lively bubbles spread the flavors around well.
Finishes semi dry from the hops with lingering malt texture.
As far as amber ales go, this is about as good as it gets. Tons of depth and complexity with perfect balance, great appearance and feel.

3.86/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance-poured from a bottle into a brandy glass, dark ruby read sparkling with a half a finger of white head that dissipated rather quickly.
Aroma- sweet traces of maple syrup and jolly rancher fruit candy. With an all too familiar tropical hop aroma. I smell this in a lot of beers I like. Slight traces of chocolate or carob.
taste- wow rather smooth i would say that this beer is the closest i have ever tasted to a cherry tootsie pop. honestly its not sticky sweet but has almost a cordial type taste to it. the hops take on a medicinal ( but not unpleasant note think jagermeister)). I know this description wouldn't sell it for me but it is a very good tasting beer.
Mouthfeel- medium to dry, it could be a very fast drinking beer because i perceive a slightly lower level of carbonation. There is a slight alcohol warmth as well.
Overall- it s a very unique beer, I think calling it a west coast red under sells it. This beer taste like it has some depth or age to it. The on the bottle description is more accurate " its malty with out being too sweet and hoppy without being too bitter" paraphrased. I would gladly grab another! I would pair it with a pork tenderloin that had some sort of fruit compote garnish, thanksgiving turkey ( as a sub for cranberries), or after getting a flat top in the old barbershop (that's when i would always have a tootsie pop)
