Draft at Proof. Amber pour with a foamy white head. Caramel and biscuit malts wit a slightly soapy hop character with notes of flowered and pine. Flavor was medium bitter pine throughout with nice malt backing to it. Drinks more like an IPA than an amber.

Pours a clear amber red on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lacing. Aroma is light, but faint piney hops and caramel and crystal malts. Taste follows, slightly bitter, hoppier than I expected. Pretty nice and easily drinkable.

A nice hearty iperial amber. Lots of hops in this one and a very tasty malt bill that has caramel and even cocoa notes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler on tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Pours an nice looking orange-amber with a thinner toward-khaki head. Nose of pungent pine forest, some mango, a little toast, and some caramel. Taste is pretty damned bitter, with just a touch of sweetness. Palate is lighter with a cleansing bitterness from start to finish. Nice stuff, very hop-forward.
