COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

It is a smooth amber. The malts hit you first and the hops kick in just enough to let you know they are there. A nice amber color the scent was there but not overbearing

Not as hoppy as it claims. But a nice toasty and malty west coastish red ale.

12oz can in an English pint. Pours amber with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops plus a little bit of caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same with a nice amount of hops for the style. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

I popped the can open and beer and foam came flying out. Not sure if it was user error or not... Anyway, lots of foam on a cloudy, medium straw colored body. The aroma is a dull citrus smell with some hay thrown in. The taste has a good malt backbone with only a mild sweetness. Pine bitterness to end. Enjoyable. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Besides the exploding can, I thought this was a fine drink.

From the can, amber pour, Some Hoppiness and malty flavors. It's a nice and simple beer, earthy finish. Still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A lot of breweries are straying from the original malty American amber and are putting out ambers that are just slightly darker APAs. While these are good, It’s nice to see some folks are still doing it the old fashioned way. This is a nice, full bodied malt accented brew. There is a touch of floral hop character in the nose but very little bitterness in the finish. A nice, creamy texture keeps it easily drinkable and the relatively high level of sweetness never cloys. Overall, it works quite well.

Pours amber with minimal head. Slight caramel aroma, but not much else. Not much to taste either: a bit of roastiness and an inappropriate amount of hop bitterness. Bit too carbonated for my taste. Bitter finish.

Poured from a bottle to cup. Beer is a amber orange in color and clear. Would drink again.

Can. Pours a clear amber color with very little head on it. Nose is quite toasty and malt forward. Taste has the same toasty elements with just a slight hint of sweetness on the back end. Light and easy to drink, just not overly flavorful.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy amber color with small creamy tan head. Aroma is mostly caramel malt, maybe just a bit of pine or spruce in there as well. Chocolate notes in the flavor. Decent.
