A- Clear dark orange/light red. The head is thin and only leaves a slight lacing.

S- Caramel notes along with pine and grass. I'm almost positive there are Nugget hops in this beer.

T- Very similar to Hopback Amber, maybe a little less sweet. Mild caramel upfront followed by a piney bitterness. The finish is slightly grainy.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O- A solid pale ale, reminds me of a cleaner Hopback Amber.
