Like most Smuttynose beers this one is very well balanced. The color on pour is a light orange or dark yellow with a solid head. The lacing was very nice as it went down the pilsner glass I was drinking it in. On the palate is is slightly bitter at the end. Overall, a hoped beer but hopped nicely to spice. Hints of sweet malts in the background. Hard to go wrong here.
My Beer Advocate score: B+ / 3.9
