Clear amber copper color with a thick thin head with short retention.
Light aroma of caramels, spices and herbal hops.
Flavor of caramels, spices, toasted malts, tea leaves, fresh floral, earthy and herbal tangy hops (did I miss something?), mild citrusy, American yeast, lemon and pine. Dry aftertaste with a long bitter and toasted feeling.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Interesting take on Amber ale focusing on English hops, but with American boldness (55 IBUs) on a malty base (not in excess).
