A - similar to a Marzen. Deep, deep amber. Nice big fluffy off white had that fades to 1/4 inch. Lots of lacing.
S - oh, so nice. Banana, orange citrus, vanilla, maybe a little cinnamon? Very appealing, and orange leads. Exceptional, impossible to smell without wanting to drink.

T - more peppery than the nose suggested. I don't think anyone would call this a hop forward beer. I really hope the hophead can see past that to recognize how damn tasty it is. So well balanced. I am a NE Revolution ticketholder and i wish I could find this at Gillette alongside the Bud, Sam, and Goose Island IPA. I'd pick this every time. Exttemely drinkable. Definitely have to get more. I guess it could be a little hoppier, but overall it's still so good. I do have to say that there is the possibility the vanilla could become cloying as a session beers. I may be talking myself out of this beer the more I drink, lol. Tone down the vanilla and add the slightest touch more hops and it's a 5.
