Bought a growler of this from Ale Yeah bottle shop in Decatur GA.

A. Orange/Red with a decent off white head that stuck around awhile.
S. Floral hops, and spicy malt.
T. Good burst of floral hops on the first couple sips that disappeared quickly, leaving only a funky, flat, dry malt taste.
M. Average for the style, not unpleasant. Decent carbonation.

Overall this beer was completely unimpressive. The hops faded too quickly, and the malt provided no backbone to carry you home with. I let this growler sit a couple days before opening which could have caused some of the disappointment, but it seemed fresh enough, just not a good beer in my opinion.

Poured into a pilsner glass. Poured a deep amber with a medium, pale head. I smell the amber malt, maybe some earthy hops? Tastes smooth with a little malt sweetness. 5.0% ABV was well hidden but felt.

The hops are earthy, and clean up the malt nicely. Not cloying, very drinkable thanks to a dry finish. Kinda feel like this is just an American amber but with English hops, but what do I know.

Pours a deep, barely translucent reddish sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma is strong, spicy and surprisingly hoppy. Flavor is quite hoppy with strong tones of cloves and cinnamon and a hint of honey sweetness. Texture is sassy, fizzy and lively.
