Hazy amber in in colr with a creamy tan head that is somewhat lasting. Nose is balanced with a hoppy profile and note of malt. Palate is medium to full bodied with a solid hop backbone with the malty flavors mingling inbetween. Crisp on the finish making it refreshing paired with the nice body.

12 oz bottle. Hazy amber with a small white head. Fruity nose of orange and cider. Moderate carb with a bite. Body is syrupy but not thick. Interesting range of hops with orange peel, lime zest and grapefruit juice. Sour nectarine and light toffee. Good amber.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouris a ruby red with a thin light tan foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit caramel and pine. Flavor is a bit more caramel with grapefruit, pine needles and just a hint of dough. Somewhat long finish, low carbonation. This is a very good "big" amber ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent copper orange with a wispy-lacing thin white head. Aroma has a nice fresh grapefruity hoppy presence with good sweet caramel maltiness. Body starts with a nice malty sweetness balanced with good green earthy piny hops and a touch of toasted malt toward a bittersweet finish. A very nice amber.

On tap at Ale Asylum. Clear copper color with white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is intenslty hoppy, slightly resinous and piney. Taste is piney hops and toasted malt background. Seems like more of an APA or IPA, but still good.

Bottle from shigadeyo. Poured a clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with slick texture. Heavy bitter smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Dull Amber, fairly dirty, moderate to large fluffy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Hop oriented nose, very pale
citrus zest as well.   Somewhat malty on the tongue, but moreso a healthy hop dose.   Not enough to be an IPA, but certainly more
than one would expect for an Amber Ale.   Well at least for an Amber thats not going to be very malty, which this one isnít.   There
is some meat there, but not enough in my book.   However, it does make for quite a nice Pale Ale.   Moderate to full bodied,
moderate mouthfeel.   Pleasant, even if not malty enough.   Thanks Mike for this one!
