On tap. I am surprised that this is an amber and not an IPA., because the hops are front and center in this brew. Fresh, grassy hops, with grapefruit and pine flavors, mostly dry and with a touch of sweat.

Nice red amber color with a small head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor is the same with a fantastic hop bite. Extremely dry finish. Excellent.

It has a great Amber color to it and nice off white head. It has an amazingly bitter smell. Spicy, hoppy,very inviting. The taste is wow! To say its bitter is an understatement.it has a spicy, bitter, and just ridiculously hoppy taste.

Pours a beautiful red with a fluffy tan head. I’d take a nap on it. Beautiful aromas coming from the Amarillo hops; also a whiff of caramel. Tastes magnificent. A burst of hops, some spicy sweetness, and some more hops. Very drinkable but some how packs a punch at 6%. Of note, more flavorful and lively on tap.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Fresh. Pours a deep amber with plenty of bubbles and a spotty head of off-white creamy lace. Aroma is a spicy hops and a full caramel backbone. I have to admit I really enjoy the juicy nature of Green Flash’s IPAs. This is more full flavored and rounded but I’m not sure I like it as much.

Clear copper/red with a light tan head. Big piney hop aroma with ganja bud and sweet caramel. Medium body. Great hoppy pine forest and floral hop flavors riding a rich , sweet caramel malty base. Another tasty, hopped up amber ale ala Nugget Nectar.

(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma is very piney and floral with lots of hops, sweetness, and some citrus notes. Flavor is hoppy at the beginning with a bitter and cloying middle and a bitter and dry finish. Some caramel throughout. Surprisingly run of the mill.

12 oz. bottle - dark amber with white head; nice haze to it; raw, bitter, band aid aromas; drinks very bitter too; lots of pine hops and bitterness basically trumps everything; pretty blah overall; i was expecting something more along the lines of the Troegs HopBack
