Came in darker than average, dark amber vibe, hit all the C hops in the aroma, some late stage, probably centennial.

Good mix of citrus and pine, sturdy malt backbone of caramel that isn't too heavy. A pretty neat beer at a good price, wish they would make this one again, its plenty solid for just over $1, gives a hop fix perfect for spring time before you want a lighter shade of pale ale or ipa.

To me this beer was too bitter, even for an IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color, with a modest white head, which soon collapses to scattered patches of foam. Thin lacing coats the glass walls.

Aroma: Caramel notes are accompanied by pine hops.

Taste: Opens with caramel malt and aggressive pine hops. AS the taste progresses, the caramel malt shines through a bit, offering some balance to the fairly intense hops. Finishes with a wave of pine tar hops and a little sweet malt.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A decent example of the style, I wonder why Widmer Brothers stopped brewing it?

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
