Our West-Coast style amber is aggressively hopped, with a strong malt backbone and a mild hop bitterness in the finish.

IPA meets Amber! Cloudy orange with thin white head. Mega hop nose of citrus to go with caramel & bread. Over-hopped for an amber but it works here. Caramel & bread malts mix with citrus & pine. Medium bitter finish. Ambergeddon is a fitting name.

I have had this on tap and in the bottle many times, this rating is from the bottle. Pours deep amber/copper in color with a medium off white head. Aroma is a good balance of floral and spicy hops and caramel malt. Taste is heavy on the hops for an amber ale, good malt presence as well. Tastes more like an APA to me, maybe why they call it a west coast amber in the description. Good stuff!!

Good malt body, but definitely a "hoppy" beer. Floral and citrus flavors combine with a little toast to make a great session drink.

Thanks to ogglethorp for this bottle. Pours copper with nice sized head. Sweet and hoppy nose. Flavor was hoppy up front with light caramel and some toasted malt. More hops than anything, yet I liked it.

Clever name and a sharp label. It pours a slightly hazy amber body with a substantial head that laces heavily. The aroma is all about the PNW hopping - grapefruit, pine, citrus zest - although faint traces of sweet caramel eke out from time to time. There’s just a bit more malt in the flavor to support the hops, slightly weakening their impact but maintaining a solid level of bitterness that lasts long into the finish. Nice.

Had this one on draught at Angelic Brewing Company in Madison, Wisconsin. Cloudy, medium orange pour with a thick foamy white head, hoppy and a bit fruity but mild, with the hops overpowering everything else. Good, but weird for the style.

Loved the name and the label but wasn’t as much into the beer. A creamy off-white head topped a cloudy deep amber body. More hops in the nose than expected in an amber with some caramel malts added in. The flavor was hoppy with the caramel sweetness taking some of the edge off it. Decent beer, just not exceptional.

AA Ambergeddon wins bonus points with me for having a really cool label. But, it’s the beer itself that matters here. Fortunately, it holds up its end of the bargain. One of the prettiest looking ambers I’ve seen, this one is a deep red/orange with a nice light orange head. Pretty hoppy for an amber, definitely west coast style as mentioned in the commercial description. Some biscuit flavors from the malts used. I liked it.

On Tap. Pours copper color with a medium white head. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, caramel. Flavor is caramel, malts, punch of citrus and pine. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes with a biting hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.

Bottled. Dark amber body with a light khaki head. Ginger bread and grapefruit come through in the aroma. Some notes of wool. The taste is strong black tea with some grapefruit. There is also some balance of burnt bread crust and peanut shells. A strong, nutty finish. This is fairly hoppy for an amber.
