look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is dark copper to near amber, head is light tan and presents thick almost 1/2 inch.

Smell is piney, earthy, a good amount of caramel malt but its clean followed by some more biscuity malt, light toast.

Taste is a bit sweeter, more caramel than in the nose; hops are bitter, earthy, somewhat harsh.

Mouthfeel is fairly balanced and more ipa like, less sweet in the lingering feel and more bitter.

Overall, an ipa that leans more towards a hoppy amber ale with a harsher bitter flavor

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of October 2014. Sampled on September 20, 2014.

Copper-orange pour and a two-finger, puffy cream colored head.

The aroma has an earthy and spicy hop feel to it more than floral and pine.

The body is medium to full.

The hops present themselves more in the flavor with a bold bite on the palate that lingers at the finish.
