4.7/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5

This beer had a hazy reddish amber appearance but was still fairly translucent. Had a little head at first pour. Once it settles, a ring of foam is retained around the edge.

Had a very floral and herblike aroma. What you would expect from a beer with a nugget on the label.

Extremely hopped but doesn't linger as long as other hoppy beers do. That helps a lot with the drinkability. Could definitely drink about 3 of these but then would have to move to a less extreme pale ale.

4/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark amber. Pours a 1 finger, frothy, white head. Persistently lingers, never fully dissipates. Thick beer ring lacing remains.

S: A little roasted pecan, caramel, and floral hops.

T: Roasted malt, with a bit of bitter roasted pecan balanced with a crisp, distinctive hop bite.

M: Malty and earthy, with a bit of a syrupy texture. Malt and hop both linger on the palate.

D: Sip and savor. Worth the ride.

Atmosphere is really nice. Dark hue, persistent frothy head, and plenty of beer ring lacing. Nose is roasty, with sweet and floral components. Malty, a little bitter nutty character, and a crisp hop bite. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

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.
