look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear reddish amber with a medium long lasting white fluffy head, good lacing. Aroma and Taste is of mildly toasted caramel malt, pine and citrus hops, some orange flavor, fruity and bread and yeast. A medium body, crisp with good carbonation on the palate. Finishes with a sweet toasted caramel malt, fruity, some bread and yeast, mild orange notes with citrus and pine hops on the end for balance. Overall a refreshing and good drinking brew.

(presumably fresh bottle from a rep - poured into a tall, fluted goblet)

A: polished, reddish-amber... absolutely still, open-structure, off-white foam - just doesn't wanna move - lot's o' hops, I guess

S: lot of hop character - blood orange, freeze-dried strawberry/raspberry, perhaps old golden raisins?... dark, fruity bread crust - melanoidins do pop out, fresh, bold... stoic bowl of color-less alcohol, dimly shining on the perimeter, but rather phantomly coursing through the hop fuzz, opening up the sinuses

T: mellow spiciness and subdued fruit flavor on top, while a powerful, crusty, malt foundation threatens to settle into the palate for a week... sense of hard candy sweetness in the middle, but nearly drowned out by the static buzz of earthy hops... vaguely thyme-like herbal with an assertive bitterness in the aftertaste with a strong note of brown paper bag - very dry, toasty grain... jeez the magnitude of toast here is startling - almost like an Chinook-infused oatmeal cookie left in the oven too long... ends up being pretty dry

M: strange sort of burnt-to-a-crisp resin texture... medium-bodied with a semi-hollow core... kind of weightless in the finish

O: a little rough, but somewhat pleasingly loud and unbalanced... this was a bottle from the new brewery... the last time I sampled this was on tap from a keg from the old joint, and it was spineless... they seem to be turning things around - it's just one beer... curious to try their flagships again
