COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remember the stuff we were promised as kids? The flying cars, manned space stations and jet packs? The malty and caramelly flavors of an amber ale melded with the hoppy punch of an ipa? The future is not far off – and may be in your own hands.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Clear deep brown and amber coloured body with a great violet and deep ruby glow and a decent two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pungent resin and piney hop smells, some toffee and caramel sweetness and a nice rich malt and nutty scent as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive hop flavours up front with a very nice nutty and caramel toffee maltiness with a lot of depth and complexity. Aftertaste shows the complexity of the flavours combining, but the balance of resinous and piney hops coupled with the toffee and nutty maltiness goes well and shows an added layer of depth. Overall, a very nice beer and definitely fits in this category, and quite simply - is one of the best Ambers I’ve had as well -this one deserves to be drunk if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 27-September-2013 for US$4.98 sampled at home in Washington on the other end of this country on 31-March-2014.

Lightly hazy amber beer, big pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and semi dry with modest minerally carbonation. Smooth malt overlaid by a nice balance of pine and madmalade hops. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Mild bitter linger. Nicely balanced and drinkable if a tad dry.

ericdevin (591) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a reddish color, lots of off white head with a good amount of lacing. Aroma bright and slightly resinous, tangerine notes as well, maybe some almost nutty malt character, too. Body lively, with finish well balanced and long, caramel and an increasing bitterness. Different and delicious.
