look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark orange with a big thick head (thanks to an aggressive pour). Very hazy, hard to see through.

S: MMMM! Big dank hops with a lot of citrus, orange and grapefruit. A touch of fresh cut grass. Juicy with a nice caramel malt. As it opens up more tropical fruit and sweet, sweet malt come through.

T: Very sweet up front with the malt. A touch of caramel. But this is really in the background because the hops shine through brightly. And bright is how i would describe this! A burnt orange, blood orange, juicy grapefruit and a touch of pineapple balanced nicely with bittering earthy pine. A dry bitter finish. some bread towards the back as well. very dank. just awesome flavors.

M: there is a little bit of fizzy carbonation on the front of the tongue. Its not too heavy and not too light either. I could easily throw back a sixer of this.

O: Probably my favorite amber ale! This beer is another one that just blew me away when i first had it. I expected some hops but this delivers them and keeps them coming. Really hits the front sides on your tongue. Another? Yes please! / 95

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a nice head, an aggressive pour yields a huge one. Creamy with sticky lacing. Reddish gold, almost rust colored. Aroma is pine sap, bright herbs, cut grass and fresh morning dew. Maybe a hint of citrus, but big grassy pine woods in your face. Moderately full mouthfeel with spicy hops over a backdrop of malt. The hops takes center stage though and the astringent bitterness is IPA-esque despite this being an "amber ale." Definitely sessionable, but the 7.5% ABV keeps me from reaching for more and more ...
