Big persistent head, off-white. Beautiful amber with red-ochre tones. Brilliant clarity.

Aggressive hop bitterness, surprising, though the label boasts "highly hopped." High hop aromas, resinous and spicy, only a low sweetness. Med-low malt aroma, primarily biscuity and toasty. Hops are dominant. Hard, minerally water aroma. Very clean and dry.

Hops are restrained in the taste, creating a nice balance with the grain bill. Clean, toasty, and biscuity malt, some sweetness. Hop flavor is medium, mostly bitter. No detectable esters, phenols, or caramels, just a bitter, dry hop and malt bill creating a crisp, if slightly low-bodied flavor.

As mentioned above, the bitterness is med-high, very dry, with a light body, though there's a slight fullness from the malts. Med-low carbonation, though the bitterness creates a some puckering which I initially mistook for carbonation. Alcohol is undetectable except for some warming.

Really a tasty beer, a highly hopped Amber lager that doesn't lose sight of balance even with its unconventional hopping. Too hoppy in the aroma, and a bit too bitter/light in body.
