Pours a clear red golden. Nice head/lacing.

Smell has citric hops, a little nuttiness, some yeast. Bit toasty.

Taste is a nice melding of citric hops and a decent malty amber body.

Decent hop presence in the backend, and potent finishing bitterness. Hops are more potent in the feel and taste than in aromatics.

This is subtler than those big aggressive amber ales- it's got a decent malt body and has more subtle citric hops (although don't get me wrong, it's quite hoppy). But it's big bodied. I'd place it close to Arrogant Bastard and the American Strong Ale genre.

Had it on nitro, really tasty and easy drinking. Felt more like a amber/red to me than a PA but that was probably the nitro smoothing it out.

Good, tasty beer all around.Was through a tasting event and this was probably my favorite beer someone could have everyday.
