4.03/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

tall boy can poured into HF stem.

Appearance: Deep amber with an orangish brown hue. The pours 3 full fingers of dirty off white colored head from a gentile pour. lots of thick sticky lacing left behind on the glass.

Smell: Dank, catty, and chalky hops. Lots of caramel malts and bready malts.

Taste: Dank, catty, and chalky hops just like the nose promised. Sweet caramel and bready malts just like the nose promised. Pine and grapefruit zest. This beer is moderately bitter and loaded with hop flavor. Also getting herbal, earthy, and grassy notes. Also getting a toasty malt presence after all that bitterness clear and the malts add some sweetness to the hoppy bitterness of this beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really drinkable. Creamy mouthfeel; its like you can feel the hop oils in the mouthfeel of this beer, to the point that it even dries out the beer in the finish. The little bit of dry quality that the beer displays actually make this finish clean because of the driness that I previously mentioned.

Overall: My first modern times beer. This is quite solid. Bonus points for great craft beer in cans!!!! Huge dank hop presence in this amber ale with a great mouthfeel.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Viscous tangerine.

S: Dank, resinous hops that are orange-like in character. Mango, nectarine.

T: Peach, mandarin or tangerine, hoppy but not overly bitter.

M: The thickness of a double or triple IPA without being too astringent on the finish.

O: Super impressed with this one. Apparently a "hoppy-dank amber" lies somewhere between a double IPA and an imperial red in taste and mouthfeel (though without the higher ABV).
