32 oz. growler filled at Kreston's this afternoon. Poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours a deep auburn color with just a halo of eggshell head that stays around for a while. I have found that all of my growler fills from the fancy nitrogen chamber system at Kreston's don't produce much head at all, so I won't hold that against the beer. Nearly perfect clarity. Patches of lacing paint the glass as I drink.

S - Robust, malty aroma full of wet grain, nuts, and sweet caramel. Light citrus component, as well. The Amarillo dry hopping shines through with a mild floral-citrus spiciness. Complex and bold.

T - Sweet upfront with plenty of caramel and tangerine juice. Multigrain bread flavors hit mid-palate followed by a nice hop bite. The bitterness lingers long after each sip.

M - Medium bodied with a wet finish. Decent carbonation. I would say it drinks true to it's ABV. No more or less.

O - This is a brewery that has been popping up on a lot of local tap lists. When I saw it ont eh growler board at Kreston's, I decided to pull the trigger. This beer is a nice example of the Imperial Amber style, with a great Amarillo hop presence. I am glad I got this one and will continue to try more brews form this up and coming DE brewery.
