look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a nice ecru head; quite a few strands of lace

Smell: Caramel malts along with citrusy hops, featuring tangerine, lemon and grapefruit aromatics

Taste: Caramel and toasted malt forward with a budding piney aspect; citrus flavors also build through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: While I typically avoid Amber Ales, I had a hunch that Coast would brew a good one and my guess was affirmed

Lacy head, clean look. Amber. Not much smell with great malty taste. Smooth round mouth feel

Too bitter of aftertaste for me, not as well balanced as I'd like
