4.3/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: translucent copper. A nice 1 inch head with great retention and lacing. If you served my an imperial amber this would be the standard for appearance. Not sure what could possibly be improved upon. It is what I thought it was.
Smell: strong hop aroma. Very light citrus. I love hoppy beers but really don't like the pine aromas/tastes that are making their way into so many brews these days. The absence of any pine aroma is a big time plus for me. Again the aroma sets the bar for me in this style. I'm nitpicking but just a little something extra to give more complexity would be nice.
Taste: strong hop characteristic but not overpowering. Slight citrus notes in middle and finish. Very balanced hop profile throughout. Bitter finish but again not overpowering. Just a great well balanced hop flavor. Again I'm nitpicking but maybe a little something to give more complexity would be nice. But this is just a great straight forward hoppy amber. Just executes its simplicity to perfection.
Mouthfeel: light and refreshing. Great for welcoming in spring. The hips and bitterness leave your mouth tingling wanting more.
Just a great simple hoppy amber. Executes the style perfectly. Great to see a brewery executing with simplicity rather than just making crazy brews that don't work. Definitely a yearly purchase in February.
Serving type: bottle
