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.

Just had this beer for the first time out of a bottle. Of course I poured the beer into a glass. :0 Pours a slightly hazy amber/copper color with a thin off-white head on top. Decent retention, and it leaves some sticky lace in its wake. Smells very hoppy, of the citrus variety. Also some candied malts and brown sugar come through as well. Every time I sip this, Iím getting bombarded with nice aroma. This beer is actually much more malty than I expected. I was expecting a wave of bittering hops, but instead whatís there is a simple delicious mild hop profile, with a toasted caramel-flavor on the finish. This is really well-balanced and well-made beer. I will buy more of this beer in a blink of an eye. It toook me awhile to nail downa beer that reminded me of this beer. Summits Pale Ale is very simalur but the Ambergeddon is much better.

Indra (2604) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Aroma of piney, citric hop, toasted malt, caramel, background fruitiness and earthiness. Clear medium red in color with a fine, sparse head and very fine lacing. Flavor profile is full of piney, earthy hop flavors and bitterness, with the dark, caramel, toasty malts certainly present but largely overridden by the hops here, very much a Red IPA. Fine but persistent effervescence, a high degree of it in fact, body is medium. Interesting stuff, very earthy and bitter overall, lacking in balance to an extent due to this factor.

Pretty decent ale. More like an IPA than a true amber though. Lots of hops and a bit of malt. Very tasty, but not a traditional amber.

jjgmd (1400) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pours an amber reddish brown color with a foamy cream head. Nose is rich caramel, toffee and malt and sweet. Taste more hoppy than sweet, with a mild to long lingering finish. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Bottle. Pours an amber orange with a tan head and aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is bitter, hoppy, grapefruit notes with malt and caramel leading to a dry, bitter finish

Best damn amber Iíve had in awhile. Beautiful color with a great finish and one of the most badass labels you can find. I think Iíll be drinking more ale asylum beers, you got me hooked

Syndicate (80) - Idaho, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Extra from Henshawb. Poured out a clear amber color with a nice tight head with good retention. Nose is grassy barnyard and sweet malts. Taste is sweet malt with a nice mellow hoppiness to it that finishes really nice. This is one of the better ambers ive had in a while. This would be a regular if available.

bottle. deep amber with one finger head. substantial malt body with medium hops. hop flavor seems dull. iím clearly in the minority, but i found this underwhelming.

TXBadger (1334) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2014
A nice hoppy red ale, one of the better ones out there. Pours a dark amber color. Lots of pine and caramel malt on the nose. Grassy pine, nuts, toast, and caramel on the palate. Pretty complex for an amber.

Love ale asylum and this is one of their best. Super hoppy and malty with tons of flavor. Pours a dark orange almost brown. Super tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. A very dark reddish orange. Aroma of wine and citrus. Upfront is a very light malt bite. Back end is a dry bitterness that opens up a burst of sweetness. A crazy amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
