The appearance has a hazy amber body that leaves a one finger white foamy head and lasts for a minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen. Some spotty lacing coats the sides of the glass. The smell has some citrus, pine and hops up front combined very nicely. The taste brings back the hops over top of the citrus and pine. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable. Overall, it's pretty good amber ale that I could come back to.

From tasting notes. Appearance: Dark deep reddish amber with a very slight haze from the hops under a 1” frothy off-white foam cap. Smell: Hop nose, citrus rind, but also some malt shows through.Taste: Big bitter and big malt join together with citrus rind, dark sugars, a suspicion of bourbon and a long lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium full body and medium carbonation. Overall: alcoholic, hoppy and malty.
