Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 09-19-2004

This blessed, coppered colored ale lends it’s hue to hearty pale ale malts and hand selected specialty grains. Glacier hops balance the wort resulting in  hoppy, and earthy flavors which compliment the core beer base.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear toffee color with strands of microbubbles supporting a beige head that is a touch sticky.

S- The toasted biscuit malt notes are dry with a green cinnamon hop finish and some field corn hints in the finish.

T- The toasted biscuit malt blends with a citrus hop notes and some green herbal pungent hops linger after each sip. The finish is slightly dry.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a good fizz that compliments the pungency of the hops.

O- The toasted biscuit malt is nice but it is really big and doesn't have much support from other malt so it gets to be to much after half a glass.

9-5-14. Bottle. Boston shaker.
A: Pours a crystal clear pale copper. 1/8" off-white head fades to a thin cap (a gentle pour as to avoid disturbing sediment). Lots of small-bubble carbonation. Average lacing
S: Malty & fruity. Fruit is subdued and sweet. Strawberry; hints of resin. Slight waft of alcohol.
T: Semi-dry arrival; turns sweet-ish & resiny across mid palate. Very firm, but not overpowering bitterness at the end. Slight touch of alcohol.
M: Hefty. Mid-to-full bodied. Lots of carbonation, but not overdone.
O: A good, but not great, APA. Nice balance, but missing that certain "something."
