A: Coppery. Doesn't look like a red ale. Looks like a hazy IPA as it is unfiltered. Pours with a thick head and leaves heavy lacing.
S: Subtle aroma but is very nice. Has some citrus and spices in the nose.
T: much like the smell but the citrus and spice character shines through.
M: Nice rich mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Had on tap at SeaTac airport's Africa Lounge. Served far too cold, so had to let it sit for awhile. Glad I did, because this one was pretty good. Appearance is very hazy copper. Looks more like an IPA. Smell is malty and sweet which contrasts nicely with the spicy mouthfeel. Overall pretty decent American amber.

Pours one finger of head on a hazy copper colored body.
The aroma is burnt fruit (apricot, plum and banana). Unique but good.
The taste is malty with mild lemon bitter, fruity but not that sweet.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
A great beer that remains unique among a growing category.
