On tap at Coffee District. Served in a pint.
Appearance - Deep brown with an ample off white head. Very dark for an amber. Nice surface foam and thick lacing.
Smell - Dark caramel malts. Slight citrus. Malt is the strongest, but the hops brighten the aroma a bit.
Taste - Citrus hop is more prominent. Citrus hop. Blends into a hefty malt backbone. Deep caramel and even some chocolate. Slightly grassy hop flavor persists a little unpleasantly into the finish.
Mouthfeel - No bitterness really. Heavy for a brown. Sharp lingering finish.
Overall - No emphasis to it. It's not really hoppy. It's more malty than anything else.
Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Served in a pint glass.
A: Deep copper in color, nearly clear. One finger's worth of off-white head with moderate visible carbonation.
S: Bready maltiness with spicy, dank, grassy and pine resin hops. Bit of citrus (orange peel and grapefruit) as well.
T: There's a hit of hop bitterness up front, then sweet bready malts with hints of rye and mild spices. Sweet malts and sweet citrus near the swallow that rapidly fades to nothing. Overall impression is a pretty balanced beer. As it warms, the hop bitterness stays a little longer on the finish.
M: Heavier body than expected. Fairly low carbonation sensation, essentially no alcohol presence.
O: An easy beer to enjoy, but nothing to make it truly outstanding. This would be a nice one to have a six-pack of in the fridge.
