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.

Grabbed a six pack in Frisco at the local store. A decent amber, slight sweet aroma. The flavor is very smooth and easy drinking. Not too much hops or bitterness.

CervezaCabeza (39) - 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 (2332) - 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.

Steve_0 (3019) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber with a big white head and great lacing. Bready, caramelly, lightly grassy, somewhat hoppy, and doughy aroma. Taste is grassy, lemons, bready, straw, and malty - pretty clean. Light body with high carbonation. Decent amber.

kaser (3552) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Sweet Carmel malty aroma. Poured from a can courtesy ( or not) from christpuncher. Off white head and red color. Taste is hoppy and somewhat fruity but a strong "red" taste. Thought it wouldn't be good and I didn't mind it at all
