Poured on tap into a shaker pint at Falling Rock pub in Denver. From notes.

This is a real gorgeous beer. A real glowing amber red, almost ruby, with hints of orange hues all around the edges. Light off white head presented with a finger. Fast thin rising bubbles with huge sheets of lacing coating in rings while drinking.

Nose is wonderfuly balanced and subtle. Hints of hop citrus zest and light caramel. Very nice airy toast grain and powdered cinnamon. Not a blast but real nice.

Palate hits with a nice light caramel like malt richness. Incredibly chewy brown sugar, with a hop warmth freshness in the mid palate. After taste hits somewhere between herbal tea and citrus orange. Feel is just a good bite of malt density with wonderful chewy grains and bread like character.

Not a hop lovers dream brew, but a fantastic slightly hoppy amber that really delivers, I really enjoyed this one.
