A: Pours a clear a copper-ish amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some hints of golden yellow + orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy foamy beige head that reduce to a medium sized patch of thick film made up of larger bubbles surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel + toasted malts with light to moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, piney, herbal, and grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of slightly sweet caramel malts and toasted malts. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith, piney, herbal, and grassy hops. Moderate amounts of lingering bitterness are present in the finish and linger for quite a while.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: A very enjoyable but quite hoppy amber ale - as a fan of hoppy beers I really enjoyed this take on the style. Nice complexity of flavors and aromas that is easy to drink. Definitely worth picking up if Troegs is available in your area.
