Weathered copper orange with a thick viscous appearance. Poured with a short white foam that reduced to a soapy cap. Light, fresh pine hop aroma with sweet caramel malt beneath. Medium bodied with aggressive, tangy carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Pine hop flavors throughout with a hint of lemon up front and caramel malty backbone throughout. Finished with a lingering pine hop bitterness and burnt caramel malt aftertaste. Intense malt character and hop bitterness, but well balanced.

12 oz bottle into tulip glass. My third beer from River Horse, but my least favorite thus far. However, the other two (Winter Freeze and Tripel Horse) were fantastic, so I'm going by a high bar here. Labeled an American Pale Ale but maltier than I expected, which isnt a bad thing, just not normally my cup of tea. Or beer. Still, even for those who dont enjoy the malty side of life as much, its a good beer. Would definitely buy again.
