P: pours a clear copper with 2 fingers of off white head that fades quickly and leaves a nice lacing.

S: smell is strait up orange peel and spices

T: taste follows, lots of orange with a nice mix of spices, it also has a nice sweetness that hangs around and leads into some hoppy bite. pretty awesome.

M: goes down pretty clean little bit of hoppy resin

O: pretty good overall, good to session and watch the nucks beat bruins with!!

I poured this Carmel colored concoction right after I finished a Dogfish 60 Minute IPA. It was a terrific transition. Sam Ale had a cherry, malt, sweetness that I don't think I would have enjoyed if I didn't start with an IPA. Great head and lacing. Sudsy mouthfeel. An all around great brew. I will keep it in the fridge at all times.
