Pours a deep amber with some reddish hues. There is little head, and it disappears quickly. I can see minimal carbonation, and the glass has sparse lacing as the session goes on.

There is some citrus / pine hops on the nose, and some toasted malts.

These flavors, and more, come about in the taste. There is an initial pine hop, followed buy a sweet citrus, like orange and bitter grapefruit, then some raisin flavors as the very subtle toasted oat / toffee malts strike a nice balance. There is a great clean sweet sugar in this ale that blends well with the prominent hop flavors. The body is lighter than expected, and the finish is clean. The Somewhat minty, but more citrus, bitters linger with the clean rock candy sweet of the malts. This brew tastes great stat to finish.

A well hopped, not spiced, or overly sweet, winter seasonal. There is a well balanced blend of piney citrus sweet hops and subtle toasted malts that make this a wonderful winter ale.
