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.

easily one of the best Amber Ales I have ever had. and a little bit of hoppiness to it, but not too much.

Wonderful hoppy aroma leads to complex malt flavors. Nutty flavors with an American hop flavor play together very well.

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

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
12oz can. Rating #15. Dark amber pour with a real nice, sticky, off-white head that left some great lacing. Nice aroma, piney hops and a light toast and a little bit of caramel. Flavor is similar, more hops with moderate bitterness and more toast. Nice stuff. (2369)

Blairgus (2544) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2012
13 sept 2012, can. Light amber/slightly orange, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is slightly dark toast at first followed by faint chlorine and harsh grapefruit runs hops. Thin body and fizzy. Tastes surprisingly different. Bubblegum and orange juice citrus with faint toasty malt. Pretty nice, though not what I'd call an amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rollinsr (366) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - DEC 22, 2011
Pours a clear amber with a bit of light tan head. Aroma is nice and nutty with a bit of caramel malt, hints of toffee. Taste is very similar to the aroma: good nutty toffee notes, and a tinge of hop character that rounds out the beer very well.

Can @ home. Dark copper appearance with an off white head. Toasty, caramel, biscuity malty, a touch piney, earthy hoppy aroma. Biscuity, bready, caramel malty, mild to moderately earthy hoppy flavor. Solid amber ale.
