3.91/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Big creamy 1.5 finger head that fades at a med pace with some nice lacing, slight hazy copper reddish orange color.

Nose light creamy toasty malts with some caramel and toffee, hint of esters I think, then light earthy grassy spicy hops.

Taste starts with a hint of booze, light toasty reddish malts with touch of caramel and toffee and juicy malt. Then earthy light spicy hops with decent bitterness. A hint of orange zest comes through with the hops and a slight candied orange peel. Light creamy feel on the finish with lingering bitterness and spicy earthy hops light chewy even fairly dry but light sticky.

Mouth is med to slightly bigger bodied, decent carb, just a hint of warming booze.

Overall not bad. Interesting malts and hops, pretty much what I expected. Nose had a slight possible off-flavor like yeast touch but barely if at all.

My first try of Cambridge brewing's wares.Poured into an imperial pint glass a deep copper with a tight formed half finger slight off white head.A mix of earthy and piney hops in the nose,deep brown sugar maltiness underneath.Sharp piney hop notes upfront on the palate with more of the earthiness coming into play,light booze and brown sugar are there as well.A nice big red alot of pine and earthy hoppiness.

Very malt-forward and a pronounced nuttiness that was not expected. A pretty good beer overall, but I've had others I've enjoyed more.

S: Toasted malt, grapefruit, some caramel.

L: Hazy red, off-white head that dissipates, some dusting.

T: Toasted malt with a very prominent grapefruit and orange rind and hoppy backbone. Medium high bitterness, fairly bold malt sweetness. Finishes with additional hoppiness and slightly sweet malt. Ends semi-dry.

M: Medium-full body, quite smooth, medium carbonation.

Not bad, quite bold for the style.
