COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fiery color and unique thirst quenching hop profile give this amber ale a signature all its own. Hand-selected Cascade hops from the NorthWest United States provide a distinct citrus flavor, while still allowing for a subtle malty sweetness.

Nose: light nose for amber , grainy sweets were muted with shade of citric hop

Location: Tap at the Brew Pub , 8/7/09

Overall Impression: Not particularly hoppy, this is an alright beer. I didnít find it particularly exciting, but not particularly bad either, it just kind of is. Decent, drinkable.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Draught at the brewery. Amber red color with a lasting creamy light beige head. Malty bread crust aroma with some light hops as well. Malty flavor of caramel and bread crust. A touch of sweetness and some subtle piney hops. Medium-light body and smooth carbonation. The board said that this was "seriously hopped in the west coast style" um... no. Just no. I canít really hate on it per se, but it this is just not hoppy by any measure, especially compared to the Capitol Amber Waves being brewed just up the street.

WillieV (197) - Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Light golden brown color served with no head. High carbonation again nothing that jumps out at the drinker that would make it stand out in a crowd.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Pours amber in color with off white head. Aroma sweet, malty and citrus hops. Taste malty and citrus hops with bitter finish. This one is more or an APA then a Amber Ale.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Same olí same olí. Amber is so boring. Mildly malty, mildly grassy, thick and lip coating.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Hazy amber beer, creamy white head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty. Lightly nutty and quite fruity as well. Soft grapefruity hops. Nice fruity hoppiness, soft and lightly fruity. A little bit of very light fruity bitterness. Itís pretty clean though. A much nice pint than I initially expected based on the aroma.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 2008-09-05, draught at the brewpub as Velvet (nitro keg), 5-3-5-2-10=25
Amber color with the obvious yoghurt-like head. It has some caramel aroma and flavor, of course with a smooth mouthfeel. Simple.

2007-10-06, draught at the brewpub, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Amber color. Light hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel, quite good caramel flavor with a bit of a quality hopping.
