Poured from a 12oz bottle into a FFF Teku glass.

Appearance - Pours a crisp, clear, red amber. Beautiful. 1.5 fingers of head leaves behind thin, spotty lacing.

Smell - Nectarine, peach, orange, light hops. Sweet and inviting.

Taste - Big bready malt backbone mixed with the same light, sweet nectar-like citrus from the smell. Nice, clean and smooth. Bold, without being overbearing.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, wet finish.

Overall - Very solid brew! I like it a lot. I just wish it was available in the Chicagoland area. I would buy this regularly if it was available out here. Big thanks to robieobie1 for the trade.

Pours an orange copper with a large, frothy head. Good lacing. Aroma is citrus and malt with a hint of pine resin. Very malty initially on the palate with a tropical fruit hop profile. Bitter and dry on the finish. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a well crafted amber ale.

Pours a clear amber to copper color, with a two finger bright white head, with very good retention and plenty of lacing. the aroma has grapefruit, pine, floral hops, and caramel malt.

The taste has a nice combination of bitterness and sweetness with grapefruit, pine, floral hops, caramel, bread, and toasted malts. Slightly herbal. there's a lot of flavor in this beer, and is very well made.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink. Finishes dry. A very nice beer. I would buy this each winter, if it was sold in Minnesota.
