12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- a crystal clear amber with ruby highlights. A small semi-dense white head that dissipates quickly, but leaves nice lacing on the glass.
S- note of a sweet biscuity base with citric notes of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and papaya or passionfruit possibly.
T- the sweet malt bill starts things off, but is quickly balanced by the hop bill. The hops follow the smell and really blend nicely with the syrupy sweetness of the malts. On the end is an almost pilsner like malt taste and bitterness which really throws a complex note on this one. The tastes really have definitive transitions from sweet, to hops, to pilsner like bitterness.
M- Slightly slick, and fairly dry on the end, I really like creamy mouthfeels on imperial ipa's/ambers/red ales, and this one really doesn't have it.
O- a very, very good beer. While it doesn't rise to the level of the Hopslams of the world (for me at least) it's very good, and one that everyone should try.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: light pale/orange. Not quite an amber at all. Very nice white head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell: sweet caramel malt, some raisins, nice light piney/earthy hoppiness
Taste: caramel malt with light pine/earthiness/spice. Taste so far is the best part of the beer (as it should be?). I expect a boring light amber ale and I get a unique flavor that is different from other "hoppy ambers" or IPAs. I like it. With each sip I like it more. The resiny/oily character and herbal quality come out with each sip
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky/oily.
