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.
