A: Pours a clear copper with a nice head stand. good lacing and retention
S: Nice balance of hops and malt. Floral citrus hops with a bit of grapefruit and apricot. Very , nice caramel and toffee malt aroma. some cracker notes in the background.
T: Perfectly balanced beer. Floral hops with grapefruit and a bit of pine. Nice sweet malty caramel. A bit of lemon citrus midway through. Starts as a sweet caramel malty flavor and transforms into a bitter hop finish. Nice bready and semi bitter dry finish.
M: Medium body, slightly slick on the palate. Medium carbonation.
O: This is a VERY well done amber ale. It hits on all points. Great balance, nice hop flavor and aroma, great malty backbone, and nice finish. The complexity is evident as the flavors slowly mutate throughout the sip. You can literally feel and taste the beer change changing character as you swallow. Pretty neat trick.
