Beautiful burnt copper color with standing head. Creamy mouthfeel with spicy hops. Not IPA style hoppiness but substantial. Good mouthfeel and lingering hoppy finish. Another good job here!

Clear medium amber color, foamy white two-finger head, cobweb lace. Taste is malt that adds more body as it moves past a carbonated swallow to a lightly hopped finish. Overall, a solid light brew, never more than malt and hops, but it works on a simple level.

emacgee (4486) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Soft straw gold pour with some haze and one finger of off white head. Nose is herbal with some citrusy notes, woody hops, and bready malt. Moderate hop bitterness in the mouth with citrus rind and spicy/zesty hop notes on the finish. Starts off pretty unassuming but there are a lot of nice qualities that pop up.
