bottle. clear burnt red color with a small white head. big toasted malt nose with biscuits and lesser notes of caramel. flavor is significantly more hoppy than the aroma suggests. flavors of bitter citrus hops that are complimented with a nice toasty malt. i love this style. similar to an irish ale but with an american style hop addition.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and dank herbal hops. Taste follows aroma, medium-heavy bitter. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Very good.

More of an amber to me. Red amber color with average head. Solid mouth feel. Hops and malt are evenly matched. Interesting mix of hops which are quite unique.

Nice lacing, good hop aroma. Reminds me of an english style pale ale/IPA. A lot of biscuity and caramel body with pretty mellow hop flavors that leave a of the show with the malts. Overall a nice balance and combination. Everything seems to go together really well.
