12 oz bottle that's dated as 9/22/11 into a pint glass. Bought it on my trip to Delaware.

Pours just like the style says, a nice light amber color, with a decent two finger white head. Leaves mild lacing.

Wow, for an amber ale this has quite a hoppy nose. The hops are pretty floral with notes of pine and resin.

Yep, its decently hoppy. What's nice about the flavor of this beer is that it isn't overly hopped, the hops are just a little more powerful than the malt. The malt is sweet with some caramel and are washed away by the aforementioned floral and pine hops. Some notes of citrus pith linger.

Surprisingly, not a dry finish like some hoppy beers are, this one is pretty neutral on the mouth, lighter side of medium body.

Very drinkable, practically session beer material. A great example of how you can make a hop forward beer without over doing it. Awesome amber ale to boot.
