A - Rich caramel-amber in hue, small light khaki head with dense bubbles. Some nice lacing and a thin ring of retention on top.

S - A bit of caramel malt mixed nicely with the scent of spicy and perhaps a bit of grapefruity hops.

T - The malt profile is smooth and slightly robust but quickly gives way to some spicy hops. Finishes semi-dry with a slight and pleasant bitterness in the mouth and sweetness on the lips.

MF - Smooth and a bit syrupy in texture. Pretty drinkable. Carbonation is matched well.

O - The caramel malt / spicy hops work nicely. Mouthfeel is great and drinkability is ample. I'm starting to love the Amber style, and this one is no exception. Very good.

Pours a deep amber with a sizable amount of dense, foamy off white head that has great retention. The nose has floral, hoppy aromas with some faint caramel notes. The taste is sweet caramel up front with floral, pineapple-like hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, and easily drinkable.

The sweetness becomes a little much by the end of the bottle, but the hops are intense and add some bitterness as well as some complexity that keeps you interested. I've had this before and try to get more any time I'm in PA.
