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.

Poured from bottle. Clouded copper color with an off white head. Surprisingly just a light pine aroma, when I was expecting more. A very good taste. Slight citrus with a strong hop to start, but doesn’t linger. A good beer is you are don’t mine the hop tast but don’t want it to overshadow everything.

For a Miller Park tailgate for which I had the beer responsibility, a friend asked for "something amber." Ambergeddon knocked it out of the park, as I had faith it would. It has a lot of everything and is perfect for an outdoor event that needs a sturdy spine from its ale offerings.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. For an "amber" this is richly brown, big and frothy. It delivers a sharp malty sting right up front. Exceptionally clean, delivering a nice balance and a bit of apple-tinged goodness, too. Very good. (#5112, 7/2/2013)

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Montana. Pours a clear dark reddish amber with a massive off white head. Malty aroma. Flavors toasted nuts and a hint of hay. Bitter finish.

MaltOne (213) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours brownish amber, slightly hazy. Nice full head. Aroma faintly hoppy. Taste is grapefruit pith, mildly hop-bitter, baked grain framework, Substantial and balanced on the palate. Overall, less hoppy then expected from the label, which was a good thing - nice full bodied amber.

kaser (2624) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Poured from draft at Mikes Highway Pub. Amber color with sticky off white head. Sweet a d malty taste with very aggressive hops. Likey

illiniphil (130) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Keep in mind this is an amber ale. Very nice hop presence that's well balanced with malts. Citrus, pine and caramel flavors dominate this very drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with an inch of fluffy tan head that lingers. Aroma of sweet malt, and tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit and pine, with a roasted malt backbone.

Bottle to pint (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a slightly hazy amber with off-white lacing and lively carbonation. Smells and tastes solid; sweet, hoppy, and malty with nice balance and a caramel presence. Nice and light on the palate for an Amber. A good example of the style.
