Amber pour with a big, active head. This is an astringent and very hoppy red/amber ale, with some lager flavor. At first this is almost like a random blend one might together from a few open bottles at a beer tasting, but the flavor did grow on me. The aroma is lightly funky and sweet. It is Interesting on the palate, with notes of chili and wintergreen. This was not love at first taste, but it is a good brew.

25 oz. bottle. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a thin, brief tan head. Heavy aroma of malt, caramel & hops. Medium-full body, taste is a good balance of malt and hops, a little sticky mouthfeel. The caramel stays with me on the swallow. Pretty good.

Strong carbonation. Moderately opaque. Nose is great. Fruit and pine. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy with a bit of a carbonated bite. Taste is nice with mild sweetness. Strong hop bitterness, though not much aftertaste. Good maltiness. Pine, orange juice, raisin, and biscuit. A very enjoyable beer.
