4.34/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a Night Shift tulip. Big thanks to jaltland for this stellar extra.

Pours a clear, bright amber--looks like burnished copper. Frothy off-white head, about one-and-a-half fingers high. Medium carbonation, spotty lacing.

Smells like...well, at first whiff it honestly smells like a strawberry-banana smoothie. The nose seems to change slightly after a few whiffs, however, as bready, oatmealy malt notes begin to appear and the hop profile becomes slightly spicier and earthier--a bit dirtier, as it were.

In the mouth, an initial surge of piney and grapefruity hops is quickly cut into by a lightly sweet wheat bread malt note. Blood orange and tangerine hop flavors appear mid-palate, as well as tantalizingly subtle notes of mango, pineapple, and what I'd swear is strawberry. Finishes quite dry, with a resurgence of fresh green pine and a touch of caramel malts.

Medium-bodied, with zippy carbonation balancing an otherwise slick and sticky mouthfeel. Finishes at once resinous from the hops and sticky-sweet from the robust malt backbone. ABV is well-hidden.

On the whole, this is a magnificent amber ale, probably the best I've had. The robusticity of the malts brings the beer together while still allowing the hops to shine. Delicious.
