look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Really, the only bad thing I have to say about this beer is that it should be made year-round. But anyway...

Pours an intriguing true amber with a big, sticky, pillowy head. Gets down to about a finger at its lowest point, with nice even lacing. It's a good-looking beer, but really, that's the only area in which this one doesn't excel.

The nose is gorgeous. Bready base, some thick, woody, vinous notes, and of course the hops on top of it all--tending towards citrus-pine, but a little spicy and floral as well.

The taste is well-balanced for all the name would imply. It's actually more vinously sweet than malty, I'd say--but not cloying. Hops hit on several notes as the nose promised; piney, citrusy, and floral. Nice dry, tannic finish with a little sweetness and little to no alcohol (that can be detected through the hops, anyway). Mouthfeel is pleasantly sticky, kinda staying on your tongue so you can enjoy the interplay of all those hop flavors.

Overall, this is a legitimately great beer, and one that I'm really proud to say comes from my hometown brewery. I'd put it up against anything in the country for the most drinkable ale money can buy.

3.71/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: deep orange color almost red, with golden hues with light. a finger or so of a white head that leaves a small amount of lacing on the sides. perfectly clear and bright

Smell: sweet crystals, notes of dark fruits, light plums and figs. and some herbal hop notes.

Taste: loads of crystal malts, I lose the dark fruits that I find in the nose to my disappointment. the nugget comes through at the end with herbal, and slightly spicy notes but no where near enough to balance the sweetness

Mouthfeel: overly sweet and not quite balanced out. There are a good amount of hops but i find the balance to be sweeter. very sticky as well.

Overall: after drinking hopback I was excited to try this one, but an over abundance of lighter crystal sweetness is a bit overwhelming and the herbal notes don't do enough to balance in my opinion.
