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.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Another gem, picked up from the brewery. A great mix of hops and malting with a showcase fruitiness. Good to the last drop. Citrus, peach, smooth mouthfeel though numbing of the palate followed. Tasty stuff, with a mild hoppy aroma. Red tinged body.

Dogbrick (8119) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Malt, caramel and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of caramel, malt and subtle resiny hops. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3fourths (8019) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Draft pint at Angelic in Madison. Cherry red and rust color. Cherry malt and orange scented hops in the nose, with a fresh and hoppy flavor that is heavy with the crystal malt, dropping off a bit in the finish. An overly hopping amber ale that border on APA/IPA, that would otherwise be called an imperial red if not for the <7% ABV. Very tasty.
