Wow, this was a gusher; I lost a couple ounces to the sink after I popped the cap. The beer pours with a light tan colored head that only starts out two-fingers in height. The beer is a brilliantly clear, red-tinged, dark amber color that shows a full copper color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of metallic hops, light pine and toasted biscuit notes. A more detailed inspection yield aromas of light berry notes, caramelized malt, something a bit like roasted malt and maybe a touch of warming alcohol.

Lightly sweet with a caramel backdrop, the hop character plays the lead role, though just barely; again the hop character is a bit metallic, with a nicely herbal note to it as well as some light, grapefruit like citrus flavors. Toasted grain notes pick up a touch of a sharp edge towards the finish were this sort of astringency mixes with a solid hop bitterness. This has a light-medium heft to it; boosted by crystal malts, the body is just enough to provide a touch of fullness, but this is still light enough to be an session beer.

I am not sure why the beer gushed as it is not showing any signs of infection. The flavor definitely grows on me after a bit as I wasn't really enjoying this at first, but ultimately this strikes a nice balance between malt and hop.
