Bottle. Thick texture on palate. Thin foamy white head. Heavy nose in hops and pine. Heavy carbonation with big bubbles. Pine and thick sugary flavors. Little in the way of malts. Bitter lingering finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flight shared with ebone1988 at the brewery. The pour is a pale golden orange with a thin ring of gray head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma smells like a cat got wet and is air drying. It’s musty, dusty, and not good. There is a sweet maltiness just going on in the background that i don’t care for. The flavor is also not good. There is a nerds candy flavor as if it were mixed with water. There is a light malt and it’s pretty basic otherwise. It’s a bit disappointing. The mouth feel is weird. It’s thicker, but watery at the same time. The carbonation is light and allows it to fall right off the tongue. The aftertaste is lingering malt and candy sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a lager glass.
Clear, deep amber body with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. Excellent, bone-colored, foamy head.
Lots of hops in the nose but these are more subdued in the flavor where they are also dominated by sweet and medium roasted grains. Lightly bitter.
Medium body and carbonation.
Overall: A well-crafted, hoppy amber ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks Christina! Rich caramel malt aroma with some citrus and and a touch of piney hops. Pours amber colored with a thin tan head with some retention and good lacing. Starts with with caramel malt and toffee sweetness as well as a bit of breadiness. Finishes dry, but not overly so with grapefruit citrus hop flavor with a bit of pine hop bitterness. A little bitter on the finish, but a very nice amber overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 5/13/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon/orange peel, light pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent amber ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/herbal/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
