This is the classic dark red-amber color with plenty of foam poured in the New Belgium snifter. Lots of carbonation on the tongue. Fairly malty body though quite refreshing and sudsy. Resiny hop aroma with a touch of honeysuckle.

According to the brewer this is made with Centennial, Chinook, and Zythos hops. A little cedary and verges on the herbal. Some dank notes at the finish. Plenty of bitterness and an earthiness that grows as you sip. Alcohol doesn't seem to be evident in the taste.

The hops are powerful and eventually take over the back of the throat. This is the classic Amber Ale taste, just amped up. Not my favorite of the Council brews, but clean and well made. From the 32 oz jug filled at the brewery on Claremont Mesa.
