Had this one on tap tonight at La Bella Pizza.

Pours a copper and caramel color with a very thin head.

Caramel notes upfront with some low citrus and spicy notes. Subtle fruits hidden in the background…really not as hoppy as I thought it would be.

Toast, caramel, and citrus bitterness that hold on to the palate for a few moments on the first sip, but it drops off in the following sips. Initial bitterness and toast but every other sip it seems like halfway thought the flavors just drop off a cliff. Alcohol flavors develop in the finish as it warms up.

Very well carbonated, smooth and easy to drink.

I gotta say, I was expecting more out of this one.
