From notes on 11/14/11:
No freshness date; Poured in a pint glass.

A - Very deep, red/copper color with a very slight haze; Two inch tan, billowy, clumpy head that leaves great sticky lacing all down the glass; Nice head retention as well

S - Not too strong of an aroma, but nearly balanced; Notes of caramel, toffee, and overall sweet malts; Citrusy hops are present as well, though not quite as strong as the malts

T - Very roasty, earthy, toffee-like; Slight bitterness present throughout the taste; Citrus hops are more in the background, although they step forward a bit as the beer warms

M - Medium bodied; Good carbonation; Slightly dry, bitter finish that leaves a light oily coat on the tongue

O - I haven't had a beer quite like this one before where qualities are taken from both an amber ale and IPA. The malts are more showcased than the hops, but this is still a solid, nicely balanced beer. Overall, I'm glad I got to try this and would recommend as long as you aren't expecting over-the-top hops.
