I was preparing for a mind-blowing experience and was only met with mediocrity. Now I say that mostly in jest, but I don't see a 98pt beer in this bottle. Read the review before judging.

I opened the bottle and poured a beautiful amber ale into my DFH signature glass. This has a very little head, but what it does have, retains well around the edge of the glass. There is light lacing with a a good amount of carbonation brewing.

A nose of grapefruit, pine, hops, and sweetness rise out of the glass and tantalizes the senses. There is just something about a hoppy ale that makes me smile. Maybe its the time and art that went into making something so special. I can only imagine the sense of accomplishment the brewer must feel after making a hit like this.

By now my tastebuds are tingling, ready for a treat...almost to the point of salivation. An exuberant amount of bitterness from the hops intertwined with the citrus-like fruit, and hint os metallic make this a delight to sip and enjoy. The carbonation, effervescence, and crispness on the palate leave one asking for another sip.

Overall, this is a classic Amber Ale and one to look forward to during its seasonal release. There are some other ales out there that can satisfy for the time being and in between seasons, but not many. Keep up the good work Tröegs!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint mug, this is a reddish amber beer with a smallish but persistent head. Good malt aroma with a pleasant underlay of grassy, piney hops. Flavor is really good, with plenty of malt backed against high bitterness that tastes of citrus, fresh-mown grass hoppiness. Nice big body, but not overly heavy. Light esters finish out the dry end.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
