A - The pour is a gorgeous caramel with tints of red. Head is moderate, but laces and ultimately dissipates fairly quickly.
S - Hops predominant, with spicy citrus and biscuit malt in the background.
T- Great balance between toasty caramel malts and hop bitterness.
M - Robust, but not syrupy.
D - A great beer from Troegs. Could easily enjoy a few of these while having a meal or relaxing in the back yard.

12oz. bottle dated 2/7/2014
A: Pours a light amber color. ive seen many beers this color and even darker classified as IPA. Really good 2" head that settles to about 1/4 inch and stays. Good lacing. Appearance is the best part of this beer.
S: Mostly caramel malt and some pine. Maybe a hint of citrus. Its not very complex or super inviting, really.
T: Mostly caramel/bread with pine. Kind of has an off bitterness that doesnt seem balanced or the kind of bitterness I like in a hoppy beer (I love bitterness in hoppy beers, btw). Bitterness stays on my tongue after each sip.
M: Light-Medium body. Kind of a harsh carbonation.
O: Meh. Probably wouldnt have again.
