Much thanks to my buddy Richard for getting me this beer!
A: Orange amber with a hint of red, like Iced tea. There is a solid amount of off white head on top. The beer itself is fairly clear.
S: Hoppy, with light orange peel, and perhaps grapefruit and tangerine. There is almost a spiced bread thing going on that I like.
T: There is a nice hit from the hops.. touches of pine and orange. The sweet spice bread note continues into the taste. The hops certainly take the forefront in this brew. The finish is lingering hops, and perhaps a touch of toffee or coffee.
M: Medium in body, the carbonation is lively, and mid range. The is a lingering bitterness that is somewhat drying in the finish.
O: Overall a fairly solid offering. I think this treads the line between IPA and Amber... But it is certainly tasty.

Brilliant amber with copper tones and a frothy khaki head that dissipates to a thin foam.
Nutty, toasted, sweet caramel and biscuit malt dominates, with resin, floral hops, and grapefruit countering. There's a hint of onion.
Flavor reveals a nutty, deeply toasted backbone, slightly sweet, which finishes fairly bitter and a touch burnt. Grapefruit surfaces initially, but malt sweetness wins, carrying into s light resiny finish. There's a biscuity character up front, accompanied by light chocolate notes.
Body and carbonation are moderate.
Fairly complex beer. The malt character is extremely varying, and the hops play against it well. It's somewhat of a mystery brew. Can't decide if I love it or not.
