3.96/5 rDev +1.5%
Served on-tap in a Shaker pint glass at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).
A: Burnished amber with 1/2-inch, off-white oatmeal-colored head with decent retention and a line of crusty lace at the top of the glass.
S: Big floral and citrus hops aroma greets with a pretty substantial caramel and fruity ale backing aromas. The fruity character is probably somewhat yeast derived. No detectable alcohol qualities.
T: Whopping fruity hops flavors with orange, grapefruit, lime, and floral qualities as well. The malt backbone is fairly caramelly with some bready malt/yeast character. The yeast character extends with some fruity esters as well. Moderately bitter. Nice beer with great wet hop flavor.
M: A tad thin in mouthfeel with lightish body, it comes off a bit watery. This isn't a super combo with all the fruity character. Finish is average-dry for the style.
O: A really solid brew that would be a bit better with some more body and a little lower ABV. All in all though, this is a good beer that whets the wet hop appetite very well.

Appearance: dark orange in color with a 1" head that lasts around a while. Moderate lace paints the glass.
Smell: caramel and some earthy hops are light in the aroma.
Taste: caramel, light grapefruit tones, some orange, and a nice earthy bitterness make up a a nice fresh hop ale.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and a touch dry late.
Overall: this was a flavorful ale that can be a good session beer. Hits the spot on a cool autumn day.
