A pretty ideal winter warmer. You don’t feel that heat until it hits your stomach. Light and smooth. Plenty of hop to counterbalance that sweetness. And some citrus and pine spiciness to cut the caramel flavor.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 1,500th rating! Pours a nice copper from a can, fair amount of lacing. Big spicy hop flavor was rather surprising until I read the description of the amount of hops in there. Nice citrus notes over a fair malt backbone, not too sweet, prefer it to a lot of IIPAs. Good beer.

vulcanmeister (306) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Poured on tap at Tap That in La Grande. Beautiful dark whiskey appearance with abundant carbonation and small but long lasting creamy white head. I get pine, sweet carmel, and citrus in the aroma. Very pleasant. The body is full medium. Taste is momentary pause before hops hit, a bit salty, sweetness from malt, a nice slowly evolving finish that hints of biscuit, brown sugar, and hops. The pine lightly whispers all the way to the end of the ride. A Good winter ale.

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Toasted and lightly sweet malts, some floral hop bitterness, faint citrus, and a light toasted malty finish. Solid.
