Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "enjoy by" date "MAR 30 2018".

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, copper color with one-finger tan head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: caramel and toasted bread, faint to the nose.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel then toasted bread and finishes with a slightly metallic hop profile.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a malt forward beer and I'm not a fan of toasted malt so this beer is not for me, it's not a bad beer or poorly made just not my thing.

L: Light Amber orange color, looks almost like iced tea. A medium head and some nice lacing on the glass.

S: Lots of toasted bread, some pine and floral hops. Not an overly strong aroma. For a hoppy session, I expect more hop.

T: Toasted brown bread, with notes of pine and some spicy floral hops, and a light bitterness. A little oniony flavor. Some black tea flavor. The taste is stronger than the aroma.

F: Light body mouthfeel is slick.

O: For a hoppy session beer this is a little malty but still drinkable.

From note taken 07/06/16:

Fairly clear copper-toned amber with fine flecks in suspension. Two-finger head is thick, fine, foamy, holds form well outside of glass, retains well and leaves creamy lace. In glass, mild dank (if that even makes sense) hoppiness. Seems like it might be a darker Pale Ale (this was before I poured it), what with molasses-like aromas. In glass, more so resin, raisin, leather. Tastes like a scotch ale with extra hops. Just malty-tart throughout, a bit smoky, though this seems to be from dankness of hops as much as roasting. Hops are raisiny, leathery, herbal, lightly metallic, occasionally peppery. Cleaner finish than expected, more pepper and leather than anything else. Fun balance and complexity here. Medium-bodied, sloshy with carbonation, mouth-coating, semi-astringent.

Coming in a darker SRM than your average pale ale. 1/2" off white head. Decent dry hope nose to it, leans towards woodsy-forest ness.

Taste is a standard affair with some C hops, bitterness, woody and caramel like malt impressions. When their distribution footprint expanded, I was getting some inconsistent bottles, so there seems to be a bit of a familiar issue for breweries getting fresh or non compromised product out a thousand miles away.

This one I have mixed feelings about, the malt bill seems too dark/roasted/heavy for something 'session' wise as a pale ale. I dunno, when I wanted tame, it went heavier (malt/ibu/alcohol mouthfeel) when I wanted flavor amped up (hops, dry mouthfeel) it came in short. Nothing bad, nothing off, just another beer up in here, up in here.

Appearance: Pours hazy amber color.

Overall: This beer has the aroma of sweet floral hoppy notes. The taste contains slightly fruity, slightly malty
with a sweet hop bread flavor. It has a lingering hop and fruit finish. This is one of the most interesting beers I have ever tasted, it is hard to put it into a category. I recommend this beer for a hot summer day. This is a well-balanced session IPA.
