pours a deep amber (of course) with lively albino-caramel head...sticky lacing. nice to behold. nice dried fruit/mincemeat nose...very floral/herbal. same dried fruit sweetness comes in immediately as it hits the tongue, but that's a veneer to the massive, yet balanced (bready menthol!) hop attack (it is a 'Hoppy Ale'). very similar to one of my all-time favorites, another amber hopped-up ale: Troeg's Nugget Nectar. creamy, full mouthfeel makes this an overall finest moment for Stoudts! so glad to see this sort of non-IPA hop creature out there. planning to mix this with their Double IPA....cheers and happy holidays!

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.

The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish. Overall this was decent and a little better than average as far as Ambers go.
