This is style defining. I can't think of another beer quite like it. It has a complex balance of Malta and hops that are just delicious. The color is beautiful dark Amber. The hops provide a delicious flavor and aroma.

Dark amber with a long-lasting fizzy tan froth. Caramel and herbal hops to the nose. Pine, herbal hops, persimmon, peach, various fruit skins and tea leaves on the palate. Dry and light to medium. Perfectly balanced and highly quaffable. Somewhat tame but never boring. Very nice.
