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.

MaltOne (199) - 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.

illiniphil (127) - 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

b3shine (5135) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
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.

Another home run from the boys in Madison. Such a great balance, although aggresivly hopped for an amber it still has enough malt backbone to really shine. Great beer and well made.

Awktoberfest (286) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2013
Light aroma of??? Not much... Bitterness up front ...breast and malty... Hop taste but not smooth and not a good hop taste at least not my type of preferred hop prescence... Fair at best:( ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good hop aroma.... smells more like an ipa than an amber. Pours a cloudy copper color with a nice tan head. Good lacing on the glass. Very well hopped and very drinkable.
