A: Pours a light copper with a dense head that is white with a slight orange tint in appearance that leaves very little lacing on the glass.

S: A very sweet malty aroma with a spiced aroma and hops in the background.

T&M: Tons of sweet malts initially that are then strongly bittered by spicy hops midway before giving way to a balanced, lightly drying finish.
A very intriguing flavor progression on the palate. It's medium bodied with a spicy hoppiness present in the flavor profile.

D: Everyday...Love it. The higher abv content makes it good for me.

Labeling is done extremely well for this beer. The simplicity and well colored logo set it apart from other brew. Has a smooth taste with a good kick.
