A - Pours red to brown color, clear, with a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly leaving few laces behind.
S - Malts dominate with a caramel, rich to dark fruit character. Hops are citrus and floral. Alcohol evident.
T - Moderate bitterness for a double. Nice smooth malt notes that follow the smell. Hops are floral and lasting.
M - Carbonation bite followed by alcohol coolness and warm swallow. Lingering bitterness. Smooth drinking. Hop flavors stick around as well. Moderate body.
D - Can and will finish the bottle.
Overall - Malt dominates this one, but as I drink more, the hop character becomes more evident. The aroma could be more hoppy for me, but the warm sensation and sweet, rich malt makes up for this. Not entirely my "cup of tea", but a good change.
Add: The second glass from the same bottle is like a different beer. Pours same color, but very cloudy with a creamy head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Changed "A" from 3 to 3.5.

12oz bottle poured into traditional pint
Pours a hazy rust color with a thin, delicate, cream colored collar of foam.
Mild herbal, citrus-fruit nose.
This is where it got me. It was maltier than, and not as hop-forward, as expected. A bit of honey with all the citrus characteristic that I had smelled earlier, but the malt had mellowed this into an easy drinker.
It felt smooth on the tongue with the slight bubbly finish(surprising due to the lack of initial head)
Not just "good for what it is", it's just plain good.
