4/5 rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.
Appearance: medium orange hue with light to moderate haze and an active effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of frothy ivory foam and leaves a bit of creamy lace as it dissipates. Quite nice!
Smell: slightly toasty dry malt aroma with earthy hops and plenty of yeasty character. There's also a hint of spiciness here I like. Frankly, it's pretty good!
Taste: dryish, toasty malt with lots of earthy hop flavor and a pretty strong bitterness. A little caramel sweetness comes through around the edges, but this is merely a highlight. I find myself really liking this beer.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent level of carbonation and a pretty nice creaminess. I like it.
Overall: I didn't know what to expect here, but I think this is quite a successful representation of the style. In addition to that, it's a pretty tasty and satisfying beer in its own right. Good stuff!

Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. Very nice and refreshing.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted and slight sweet Maris Otter malt follow by herbal and slight orange citrus hops.
Taste: Chewy and crunchy bread, pale malts, herbal, and slight hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: As for an EPA, more earthy and fruity notes would be good.
