A: Deep amber. Even bronze-like. Thin off-white head. Not too much lacing.

S: Very bready and earthy. Mineraly. When cold, you smell the hops more, but as it warms, it brings out the more malty and earthy tones.

T: Less hops than I expected. Quite peaty at first and goes to the dark bready and malt flavors. Slighty abrasive, but in a good way.

M: Medium to light bodied. Light carbonation. Not too bad. Not to heavy on the stomach.

O: Not too bad. A decent offering from my favorite brewery. It's nice to know that they can make something that's not bombarded by hops. Personally, it strongly reminds me of a scotch ale because of the very earthy and peaty tones. For one of my first copper ales, I like it. Definitely recommended.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/26/2014. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy orange copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and caramel/bready malts; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Slight amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and caramel/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good balance of citrus/floral hops and caramel/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
