Dark amber with thick creamy head. Toffee malt aroma. Big, thick mouthfeel taste with a good hit of citrus & piney hops balanced with full bodied malt. A rich beer especially considering the ABV.

Draft at The Answer, thanks to Spies for the sample. Poured a clear medium amber, decent head. Aroma of caramel accented malts and light citrus hops. Flavor a match. Certainly not as bland as a lot of Ambers, but coming from Ballast Point I had hoped for a bit more hop assertiveness. But not a bad beer. Just wanted more oomph.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Âmbar avermelhado, boa formação de espuma (bege) e média retenção. Aroma de dulçor caramelo, malte bastante presente, inicialmente prazeroso, mas ficou um pouco metálico e resinal com o aumento da temperatura, até certo ponto desagradável quando agitado. É no paladar que aparece o amargor, de leve/média intensidade, dulçor leve caramelo, notas amadeiradas. Corpo médio, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste perde um pouco do amargor inicial, mas mantém uma boa combinação de malte/amadeirado/lúpulo/caramelo.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 Great reddish brown appearance, with a healthy foamy head. A very solid floral aroma. The taste is bread, floral hops, grapefruit and a touch of yeast. A little dry at the end, but smooth. Somewhat hoppy, yet refreshing. Good beer, but the yeasty Earthiness doesn’t give this one much "replay value".

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes of toffee and a bit of brown sugar. Pours amber colored with a thin tan head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with rich caramel malt sweetness with some toffee malt as well. Finishes quite smooth with the brown sugary sweetness overwhelming a slight hoppiness at the end. Very well made amber.
