A nice copper/auburn color. Minimal head that lasts the whole glass. Strong lacing.

Malty scent, sweet, almost too sweet. Hops and citrus, slight hint of pine or resin. Hard to distinguish.

Tastes of hops and alcohol. The alcohol isn't well hidden but is very well embraced by the other flavors. Finishes sweet and of citrus. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Good amount of carbonation. Light and sweet on the taste buds. Easy to drink.

Very nice flavor on this beverage. Very strong in its price range. Maybe just a bit too sweet for the style imo, but still a very drinkable beer.

22oz bottle, no date.

A- clear auburn with a two finger off white head.

S- this is one hoppy amber, totally dominant. Fortunately it is a pleasant aroma even if a bit one note.

T- pine and citrus hops with malt sweetness in the middle and a mildly bitter finish.

M- on the light side of medium bodied, rich and smooth.

O- a great anniversary present to us all. I can really appreciate an ale that is hoppy and a little sweet all at the same time.
