Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a couple of inches of foam; good stickage and lacing patterns

Smell: Caramel and earthy hop

Taste: Caramel forward, with the earthy hops building in the middle; fairly clean finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A bit too hoppy for the style, in my opinion, but it is a nice drinker nevertheless

Thanks, stevensond, for the opportunity
