Growler shared by shigadeyo. Pours a hazy deep amber color with a medium sized foamy beige head. The aroma is a hoppy orange citrus with some earthy and resiny notes as well. Mild caramel sweetness emerges with warming. The flavor has more biscuity malt with earthy, resiny and citrus hops throughout. The finish is dry with moderate bitterness. Definitely not what I was expecting from an amber so I would say this exceeded expectations. 9/27/09 from notes.

Pours amber brown with an off white head. Aroma is full of citrusy hops. Flavor is also a nice blend of citrusy and floral hops, with a little bit of caramel. Very good.

7/03/2009: Bluegrass Amber Waves of Pain reminds me of a hopped-up Stone Levitation Ale. This beer is dry and plenty hoppy. The earthy, resin, and deep bitter citrus peel flavors and accompanying bitterness really come through. It has a dry spicy finish. Even though there is no rye malt in this beer, it still reminds me a little bit of a weaker version of the BBC Rye 75. The appearance may need a little refinement since the murky bronze color isn’t overly attactive, but may the keg just needs more time to settle. Anyways, is is topped by a frothy dark beige crown. This is a very sessionable beer.

Draught (growler) at Party Town in Florence, Kentucky. Rating #8 for this beer.

decaturstevo (4920) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Aroma of paper and corn. Deep amber pour with off white head and lace. Clean light malt almost no bitter. Thin and foamy. Drinkable is what it is.

On tap at the Theatre Square location. Cloudy copper pour, dense tan head. spicy hop nose. A big-beer flavor--malt, alcohol, and a huge hop finish. Very tasty.

(Cask) This was out of the regular tap, and being the bartender’s favorite, had a little left on cask and was nice enough to pour a large sample glass for me. Pours a hazy deep amberish orange. The nose is massive, loads of citrus and melon rinds and grapefruit. Just a virtual smorgasbord of hoppiness. Alovely beer that is a pleasure to drink and is gone way too soon.
