A- Pours an orangey-golden color with thin finger-width head. Good lace down glass
S- heavy crystal malt aromas of bread crust and caramel. Honey as well. Citrusy hop aroma but takes a backseat to the malt.
T- bread, caramel, honey, slight orangepeel taste. Bitter hops on the back end.
M- light medium feel, juicy bitter finish.
O- not bad. I don't know if I'd seek this one out again.

Pours a clear copper color with a tight, quickly fading white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of toasted malts and some citrus hops.

Tastes of a pretty big malt backbone layered with some hops. Malts lead off with caramel, toasted bread, and a touch of fruitiness. This gives way to pine and citrus hops. Deinfitely leans towards the malty side of the spectrum. Finishes with a bit more bready malt.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is pretty good, but don't expect a blast of hops.
