look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This is just becoming available around me in northwest indiana, so I had to give it a try.

This pours hazy amber, nice and rich looking. Little head, though, which dissipates quickly. There is just a small foamy ring around the glace, and no lacing at all.

Smells somewhat fruity with hops present. Pretty good. Nothing foul,. either.

Taste is not my cup of tea, but I'd consider it quite good for the style. Citrus rind bitter, with a touch of pine.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. Nice and fizzy at first, switching to creamy, and finishing with a dry hop bite.

The dry finish is very nice - that is my style, but there is a bit of pine, and a slight bitter aftertaste I don't like. You may like the pine finish, though, if you are into that. ...the aftertaste is another story though...

I think this is a worthy offering, but feel it is more like a pale ale. In any case, if you are into this type of flavor, I really recommend giving this a try if you can.

3.6/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Nutty, slightly sweet, caramel aroma. Very nutty flavor, not as hoppy as I expected for an amber. Slightly sweet, but with a lightly bitter and earthy finish. Fairly drinkable. Floral notes emerge as it warms. Better than I expected, but u wouldn't call it an amber.
