A: Pours a very hazy dark copper to amber in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall creamy but dense beige head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of small thicker patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: This beer has a malty smell than I expected for the style - primarily caramel and just a hint of toasted malts. Light amounts of citrus/orange rind and pine hop aromas as well.

T: The beer starts out with a light amount of caramel malt sweetness but the dominant flavor is from the hops - some earthy hops along with citrus/orange rind hop flavors. There are light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable but a little bit too strong to be an easy drinker or sessionable beer. I wish this beer had a little less bitterness.

I like this ale. Very meaty with hop character. Not a hop bomb that just explodes in your mouth, but a full and earthy profile. It's easy to drink, even though it is quite hearty. I like these style interpretations that aren't obnoxious or overdone just to make a point.

Chilled 12 oz. twistoff longneck into a shaker pint. Bottling date 6.6.12.

Look- Hazy light amber capped with three fingers of dense buttermilk head. Good retention, and I count no fewer than twelve distinct rings left on my glass.

Smell- Mild, flowery, light citrus and lychee. Second impression is similar, but sweeter.

Taste- Hop-forward on a light cracker malt backbone. Earthy, musky flavor mixes with resin and underripe mango. Pale molasses, perhaps, but it's pretty indistinct-light sweetness akin to watered-down fruit cocktail syrup takes the edge off the bitterness without masking it. Comes off as pretty mellow, nice.

Mouthfeel- Light-medium body, a bit prickly on the sip. Juicy on the swallow. good quench factor, moderately dry. An easy drinker.

Overall- A pleasant drinker, and a nice end-of-summer brew. Flavorful without being heavy or cloying. Worth trying.
