Look - A bubbly pour with a dark amber color; a late arriving head of about 3/4" with a white color.

Smell - Hops, caramel malt, toffee.

Taste - Citrus and pine, slight hops. A slightly sweet but smoked flavor that tastes most like burnt brown sugar; caramel in between sips.

Feel - Bubbly at first but then quite silky smooth.

Overall - Really enjoyable amber/red style beer.

This is a great red ale, big juicy hops and sharp malts that complement each other, not cancel each other out. The barley is boughy, with toffee and toast, which lead right into the spicy pine and orange peel. I'd like to try a fresh one next to Nugget Nectar or Furious.
