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

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.

ARH (660) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 12 oz bottle. The aromas is mostly bread with hints of warm caramel roasted nuts, and a touch of chocolate. Itís a clear, oily brown color with a fluffy tan head that retains well and leaves a good lace on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium (slightly less) spice bitter. The beer is oily and slick with a foamy carbonation and a medium body. Roasted flavors come forth first with a combination of caramel and nuts, as well as a touch of chocolate. The finish is dry and grainy with grass and spice notes. The aftertaste is spicy and a bit waxy, but not unpleasant.

This beer has a very simple "bready" smell with a strong flavor. Not really a great strong but still good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Bodega. Pours a clear amber with a large fluffy tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a combination of earthy grains and earthy pine with a decent amount of grass as well. Flavor is similar with dank pine and earthy grains as well as a biscuit backing.

12 oz bottle from our friends at Timers in Racine. The skull grabs you eye to eye until you pop the cap, when the waft of pine overcomes your fear of the death youíve set for yourself. Pours a dark, dark copper, clouded with unfiltered sin and evil. The taste is more an earthy malt, with a milder hop note teasing your breath at the finish. You want another...and another. A fine session ale. I knew this would happen! Iím just dying to have yet one more for the grave! What a way to go! Prosit!!

Bottle, thanks George! Excellent sweet caramel aroma with notes of chocolate and floral hops. Pours cloudy dark amber with a large tan head with good retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt flavor with a touch of chocolate and hops. Finishes dry with grassy hop flavor with a bit of a bitterness with some of the caramel lingering on the palate. Excellent, well-balanced amber!

Bought June 2014 as single bottle from Lemon Tree. Big malty smell right under the cap, and an impression of a higher alcohol beer. Rich, foamy head atop a brown ale body, darker than amber, I think. Taste is indeed big on malts. Hops are there as a kind of sting to one part of the tongue. There may be some oxidation going on. I think because just seeing a name like "Ambergeddon" on the label made me think it must be a higher-alcohol beer that can cellar, turns out it may have sat for longer than it should have.
