Can't wait to try this, it's my first!
A: Pours a light frothy head into my snifter. It fades quickly. It's a golden amber orange color with hints of a reddish hue and very clear.
N: Fresh hops glaore! Fresh musty wet hops hit right away. It's got some spicey hops, slight citrus and pine, as well as a juicy chewy hop aroma. A slight juicy fruit as well.
T: Spicy chewy juicy hops hit right away. More musty fresh hop taste. Slight juicy fruit taste. Very chewy fresh hop taste. A very slight malty flavor adds a slight sweetness and maltness. A bitterness hits a peak quickly and sits there, its a nice bitterness, not too heavy. No booze at all, its very pleasant and tasty.
M: Pretty thick for the type, decent carbonation.
F: It finishes slightly dry, with lingering heavy bitterness, but it doesnt grow beyond the point where its too bitter. It has some lingering juicy fruit tastes as well. A chewy fresh hop taste also lingers. With the hype behind this beer, I was a little worried it wouldn't stack up. I was also worried it would be too heavily hopped for being an amber. On the contrary, this is an awesome beer! It has some great hop characteristics, flavors, keeps itself light and doesn't go overboard. The only thing I can possibly see wrong is I would have liked a little more head and carbonation.

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.
