3.7/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a surprisingly light amber color (for an amber!) with a magnificently formed head that coats the glass and leaves streaks and spots of lacing
Smell: The label says it is dank and it is dank, with caramel and citrus pith tones
Taste: Caramel, with buttery diacetyl building underneath; the dank and pithy hops take over, in the middle, bringing an unusual combination of starfruit and melon to the mix; the buttery elements of the malt are a bit strong, in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I was excited to try the beers from this brewery and this one has sat in my fridge for a couple of months too long, perhaps, taking the hops in a different direction than the brewer intended, I will have to try a fresher example the next time I see this one
Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity

3.89/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a crystal clear copper hue with a nice fat one finger head that fades to leave a nice creamy blanket. Solid
S - Aromas of caramel, pine resin, sweeter malts, rather balanced albeit light. Slight earthiness too
T - Taste is light caramel, some pine, faint citrus, light peppery hops with slight spice. Malts are slightly heavier with this, perhaps not super super fresh. Still, a solid amber.
M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, crisp, slightly thin though and the alcohol is lightly noticeable.
O - Overall, a solid amber ale. Nice appearance and aroma though wish it was a bit hoppier. Still, not all that bad.
