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.

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.

Can leftover from someone at RATXIII. Pours an amber with minimal white head. Aroma is off hops, caramel that has melted them left to rot. Taste is bland to gross levels of yard waste.

Scipio (677) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours an amber with a thin, off white head. Aroma has floral hops, caramel, and nuts. The taste is heavy on malts. Mostly caramel, and there is a good deal of bread as well. Some cereal flavor. There is a slight pine flavor as well. Short and weak aftertaste of caramel with a hint of pine. Light in body with decent carbonation. Not much more going on here. Pretty basic and unimpressive.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2013
12 oz can pours a clear medium amber color with moderate white head but hardly any lacing. Delightful aroma is full of floral hops, butter, bread and a bit of resin. Taste is slightly sweet without the bitter finish that I had expected from something so hoppy flavored. Body is light to medium without too much carbonation. An easily drinkable, slightly different amber ale I wouldn’t mind trying again.

Sampled on tap at Crazy Mountain on 12/27/12. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, hoppy, piney, resiny flavors. Nice drinkable amber ale.

Can. Keystone resort on a snowboarding trip 1/13/13. The pour is a nice hazy amber. The aroma is a not nice butter, grainy, floral hop arrangement. The taste is bitter and bites the tongue. I didn’t finish mine and we poured the unopened cans.

On tap at Guana Banas in Jupiter FL. Great amber colour. Nice floral notes. Hoppy but not too bitter. Loved this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meh. Reminded me more of a pilsner. Not much going on with this beer if you ask me. On tap at the Marlboro Ranch in Montana.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2013
12 oz. can. Paid $1.90 @ The Beer Store, Nashua, NH. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Color is indeed a clear amber. Aromas are citrus hops, followed by the malt: bread, toast, and light nutty notes. The taste is straight forward and identical to the nose. Hops linger very slightly after the sip. Very light body, thin and watery. Overall it’s easy enough to drink. However, I got to say it is very boring.

this beer is nice and smooth, it has a nice balance of hops and malty sweetness. the color is a solid brown amber with a really smooth creamy head. this works all around.
