12oz bottle, unknown date but should be pretty fresh. Served at around 45F. Thanks to Mark for this one!

Pours clear red/copper/amber with a three finger off-white light beige head that leaves drippy rings of lacing and settles to a small foamy cap.

Aroma is earthy, floral hops, a little citrus, a little pine, caramel and some fruit. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is nice hops up front with citrus, pine, resinous hops, really nice bitterness, then moves on to more traditional Amber Ale qualities of some fruity malt and caramel. Finishes with more good bitterness and some sweetness, mild alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, moderate to good carbonation.

Quite good, aroma is a little underwhelming, and frankly I don’t find this to be God’s gift to hopheads like some do, but still a real treat to get to try this. Miscategorized for sure...definitely more of a hopped-up Amber than IPA.
