Cloudy, murky brown with amber hues and a sticky, frothy, creamy off-white head. Retains very well. Nice bouquet of floral and citrus hop aromas. Fresh grain and malted notes.

Extremely smooth mouth feel. Malt flavour is just right. In the malt profile are caramel, some toasted grain flavours and hints of burnt raisin. Hops are rind-like, a tad grapefruity, and lend a nice balanced twang. Finishes a bit dry with some residual hop and earth-like flavours.

An excellent American Ale! Extremely balanced, complex and interesting on the palate. Buy some now.
