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.

Scipio (751) - 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.

This one might as well be sweet tea. Not too much character as this one is malty but unsure of what kind. Not my style.

Terminus (3319) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Can-from beer of the month club Pours deep amber hue with a small soapy white head and some rising carbonation from the middle of glass. Nose is earthy, very toasted, lite piney hops, herbal and slightly earthy. Almost seems like an organic brew. Flavors are strong piney/earthy herbal hops up front with lots of toasted grains across the board. Finishes very earthy/herbal with some strong pine/resin. I feel this beer is actually pretty good for the style. Its a hoppy amber, but not like something like Hop Head Red or Marble Red. This is a good old-school amber with a boost of some hops. well done and this is not a style i really care for. very nice amber in my book.

CervezaCabeza (46) - Le Mans, FRANCE - FEB 25, 2015
Pours translucent amber with a generous ivory head. Lacing is pretty clinging to the glass. Aroma is piney and malty. Very bitter in a pleasing way. This is a good hop forward amber ale.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, citrus, and fruit. Not too sweet at all. Easy to drink.

Nearly undrinkable, sadly. The bottle states that the beer is well hopped without any bitterness, but I found a prolonged bitter finish, like synthetic chemicals, that really ruins any possibility of appreciating this ale.

can. amber with one finger head. pretty average amber but with the addition of a bit of hops that help things along.

BREWMUSKCLES (2343) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2014
soft mouthfeel and strong aroma of hop. bit of malt the beer is hoppy and recessed a bit to cut the bitter down. some pine and grapefruit. nice light brown head. typical Colorado brew and that’s a good thing!

"Hmmm...another interesting brew from these guys. What at first is pretty boring opens up to some cool layers of citrus hops, and chocolate/biscuity/caramel malts. Not too shabby. Would love to try super fresh."

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Serving: Can. It pours, well, amber. Small off white head. Slight caramel and bread in the nose. Straight forward caramel, toasted bread, slight earthy hops, and a lingering bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied. Straight forward and exactly what it should be.
