Dark amber. Cloudy. Pieces of hops floating around. Nice lacing.

Strong hop aroma. That of a double IPA. A little surprising.

Strong, bold flavor for such a low gravity beer. Nice, upfront hop flavor. Bitter finish.

Medium bodied and refreshing mouthfeel. Soft, but lingering bitterness.

A good amber ale for hopheads with low alcoholic content, but high flavor.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Medium dark brown. Pours about a 1 finger, frothy, brown-white head. Settles slowly leaving a thick blanket and a substantial beer ring. Medium spider web lacing.

S: Soapy hops. Sugar cookie, and a little lemon citrus.

T: Woody malt, white bread, slight hop bite, pecan shells, a little licorice, and light tinge of butterscotch.

M: Full flavored, hearty malt goodness. Very slight sweetness to start, and very slight bitterness in the finish.

D: Goes down easy, but you'll want to savor.

Atmosphere is good. Nice appearance including a frothy head, and some really nice lacing. Nose is bitter and sweet. Flavor is a great combination of numerous very light components. Very well balanced. Overall, this is a great quaff.
