A little dissapointed after getting this due to the high ratings.

Color is a medium to dark amber - very clear. Medium head that dissapates quickly.

What struck me was an overwhelming malty, caramel,burnt sugar, sweetness, yet not a lot of flavor. For me, this was too sweet, and it lacked the citrusy and piney notes that are typical for an IPA.

Not a bad beer by any means, and it's worth a try as it's different and the sweetness is distinctive, but I probably won't ever get this one again.

Appearance: clear amber hue with average carb for an amber/ipa

Aroma. Wet forest soil, Pine, grapefruit. Even an unexpected a weird hint of maybe dandelion?

This beer just shines when consumed. Not too dry, nice malt backbone to support heavy dose of hops. I love how the ubiquitous but unloved Nugget hop is front and center.

Slightly cloying MF.

Overall: just a nice rounded out amber ale. This has been a solid hoppy seasonal for years and continues to impress.

Wow, this is phenomenal. Don't find myself writing reviews too often. Incredible fruit aromas. Pine, mango, and pineapple on the nose with some nice sweetness. Balanced bitterness and crisp refreshing tropical fruit on the palate, again with a hint of sweetness on the finish. What a joy of a beer, and it clocks in at a reasonable abv too!

A: Beer pours a nice dark red body with almost 3 fingers' worth of creamy white head. Minimal lacing but a nice slight head remained the entire drinking time.

S: Pine like hops are the first thing I smell. Also getting some spicey malt notes too but only to a lesser extent.

T: Beer blends the hops and malt well. The hops seem a bit more obvious than the malt, but both areas are present and nicely blended.

M: Very easy drinker. Soft mouthfeel. The malt gives a slight spicy feel but is well done.

O: If this beer was easier to get in Oklahoma I would drink it in bunches. Malt and hops mix well to make a well balanced beer.
