COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a fury of hop flavor and a hint of malt backbone, this west coast amber is part ale, part sensory eruption, and all American.

Not sure on the age of this beer, cryptic best by code is D6. Aroma is nice, tropical fruits, but also slight butter. The flavor is tropical, but not overtly bitter, has a nice tangerine quality. Dont think the bottle is fresh, woudl like to try it fresher.

Bottle thanks to Mark. Probably the best amber ale I’ve had. Awesome clear amber red color with fluffy off white head. Heavy hop aroma and flavor. Unique for amber ale.
