16 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled on 11/4/12.

Pours a cloudy deep reddish almost brown. Very nice off white head, billowy with some tight bubbles. Good retention and decent lace.

Pine sap, pine needles, woody hops, bit of biscuity malt to balance.

A nice even taste.pine hops rule. Resinous, pine sap, a bit of grapefruit citrus. Some deep caramel biscuit malts make an attempt at balancing. Finishes witha pretty sturdy lingering hop bitterness.

Drinks very smooth, medium bodied. A touch aof sweetness compliments the hops nicely.

A very enjoyable beer. Exactly what it claims to be, a happy, hoppy amber!

Pours a deep, dark brown with a very foamy head of 2-3 fingers. Smell is predominantly malts along with a moist, hoppy earthiness. Opens up with toast and sweet malts followed by piney, resinous hops and a dry hoppy finish. For an amber, this is a fairly complex brew. The 7.3% ABV is well-hidden and sneaks up on you. Drinkability is off the charts. I am consistently blown away by this brewery.
