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.
