Pours a slightly hazy copperish-golden color with an eggshell colored soapy head. Decent head retention with some glass lacing. Hints of lemon and a raisen or two in the bouquet. Perhaps a raisen bread pudding. Certainly nothing obtrusive for the olfactory to experience. Nice, mild flavor with lemon citrus being noted most easily. At first, I was a little disappointed with the mouthfeel. I wanted it to be a little more wet. But, after having given the beer a few pulls, I realize that the scrubbiness and just the faintest dustiness accentuate the flavor of the beer. There is more of a bitter feeling on the back of the tongue rather than a discernable flavor at the finish, if you will. I like it. I wish it was just a fudge cheaper though.

A- Clear dark orange/light red. The head is thin and only leaves a slight lacing.
S- Caramel notes along with pine and grass. I'm almost positive there are Nugget hops in this beer.
T- Very similar to Hopback Amber, maybe a little less sweet. Mild caramel upfront followed by a piney bitterness. The finish is slightly grainy.
M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
O- A solid pale ale, reminds me of a cleaner Hopback Amber.
Serving type: on-tap
