Bottle from the brewery open house.
Pours a slightly hazy reddish copper color with a huge frothy bubbly off white head that persists forever. Earthy, pine, citrus, and stone fruits meld with light caramel and bready malts in the aroma. The flavor holds a bit more maltiness than the aroma suggested. Solid bready caramel base with an earthy citrusy flavor. Moderate hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. A bit old school with a heavier caramel and toffee malty presence, but the use of newer hop varieties make this one stand out. Nice brew.
