Thanks to jtd1969 for this one.
A - dark, amber with a thick, dense, brownish-off white head that has great retention
S - caramel, candy sugar, citrusy hops
T - big citrus flavors - mango, pineapple, grapefruit; sugar and caramel; faint, piny bitterness in the finish
M - smooth, medium bodied, well carbonated
This is a really solid beer. It has great hop character, a balanced sweetness, and perfect drinkability. This is one of the best amber ales I've ever had.

Been out of the game for a while, little bit of a hectic research summer plus I'm not really feeling this new website layout, but it feels like I'm seeing an old friend to be able to rate a beer on BA. So here we go...
Been really interested in trying this beer for sometime now, but I couldn't really find it in MI. Spotted it at Ross' Deli in Lakewood, Ohio, had to give it a try.
A&S: transparent bright yellow red colored beer. thin foamy light tan head when poured vigorously its leaves good chucks of lacing along the glass. The aroma is prodominately sweet almost candy like malts with (to a lesser degree) some grassy and citrus hops.
T&M: Could be used as a poster beer for the balance category, could have a more perfect combo of maltyness and hops. For being so sweet smelling and sweet upfront it certianly has a kick of bitterness towards the finish along with a little bit of an alcohol bite and a semi dryness. medium bodied, lowish carbonation. Very smooth.
Overall: probably one if not the best amber I've ever tried. Well hopped but not overly to ruin the balance. would recommend to anyone.

Bottled dated 3/21/12; Consumed 6/23/12.
Poured into a shaker pint. Nice aroma coming off of this one, noticeable upon the pour. As advertised, pours a medium amber with a half-inch of wite head. Looks & tastes bit more carbonated than expected. Mouthfeel is a bit heavier than expected. Well balanced between hops & malt, with a lingering bitterness.
Overall: above average & well worth trying!

Bottle bought in New York and brought back to Sweden.
A: Pours a dark amber colored beer into the glass. The warm white head is two finger high with lots of uneven bubbles. It leaves massive lacings on the glass.
S: Smells a lot of fresh citrus. Grapefruit, oranges, red grapefruit, pines, apricots, raisins and a bit of honey. I can also find sweet cookies from the malts. Dried fruit at the end. Wonderful!
T: The taste is hoppy up front. I find the taste to be more towards oranges, apricots and pine than grapefruit. There is some toffee somewhere in the middle of the sip. It is also quite spicy and herbal at the end.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Feels smooth and wonderful to drink.
O: I had high expectations on this one. I'm glad that it did not disappoint me even a bit. It is a fantastic beer that I wish I could have more often than I'm going to be.
