look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from growler purchased at the brewery.
L - Light amber body with a thin white head. Little lacing throughout.
S- Fairly strong hop presence (kind of apple cider-ish). Malt comes through at the end.
T - Fairly bitter but decent balance with the malt.
F - Not really crisp but decent.
O - Pretty good beer overall. For some reason seems like a fall seasonal beer for me. (Just as an added piece, nice folks at the brewery).

On-tap 9/2/2012 at Pour Farm Tavern in New Bedford, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is light amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness. Then some mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time.
