4.1/5 rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: This beer pours a light orange color with an amber tint and a thin, creamy, off-white head.
S: Aroma is of hops and citrus that is blended with a slight caramel sweetness.
T: Pine and citrus dominate that flavor up front followed by traces of honey, cramel malts and finishes with a dry-bread mouth.
M: Sort of an IPA feel, which is unusual for a harvest beer, but since its my first, im cool with that. Mouth is tart, yet sweet.
O: Nice off-twist on a seasonal beer, was expecting this to be a brown ale or pumpkin type, but definitely comes off like an IPA. During a season of pumpkin beers, this fall IPA takes the cake as innovators of its class!

330ml bottle bought online from CraftBeerCo
Poured an orange copper colour with a little haze. Light creamy head poured thick and meringue like then faded slowly to nice firm layer... very sparse carbonation drifts very slowly to surface... very little lacing...
Aroma - Strong biscuity malts, lightly toasted bread, light honey sweetness, some caramel, good juicy fruitiness (apples, apricots and some pears), lots of grassy notes, peppery hops, strong nuttiness, sea salt traces, some leathery traces...
Taste - Spicy / grassy hops to the fore, light toffee sweetness, juicy fruits (oranges, apples, light figs), biscuity maltiness, definite toasty bread, can't really make out any oats, faint metallic notes, light floral / perfume traces, salty...
Feel - Quite sharp and dry... medium bodied... pretty quaffable
Overall - A decent excellent example of an ESB although my bottle wasn't too fresh... would like to try a fresher bottle as this would be a good sessionable ale
