Beer is a nice copper color with a thin white head.
Smell is a nice hop aroma, not too strong. Some malty undertones.
Taste is great. This is a good malty beer with some excellent hop bitterness and thickness to it. Slightly bitter at the end.
Nice hop resin to the mouthfeel, a good thickness to the beer.
A fantastic beer to drink for the evening.
Actually, it tastes a lot like a Sierra Pale Ale clone, it has its own characteristics but if I had to compare it to one beer it would be the Pale. I love the Sierra and this is very good in its own right.

3.86/5 rDev -1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: deep red hue, slightly red (although this is a dark bar), very thin head
S: fruity and bitter, freshly cut wood (elm?)
T: Immediate bitter bite, nodes of grapefruit, lemon-peel, and woody. The last sips were better than the first (maybe due to warming)
M: Tingly and dry (gingerale mouthfeel without carbonation level) Flavor sticks to the mouth longer than most.
O: Drinkability- decent. It is comparable to Surly furious with water-downed citrus. Head dissolves very quickly. Aftertaste is good at first, but stayed into the next lager. Not bad- would drink again, but not rave worthy.
Serving type: on-tap
