coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Bomber. Way overcarbonated -- the thing erupted all over the counter upon opening. Pours a reddish amber with a medium-sized dense light tan head. Lots of caramel, grain, some fruit, a nice spiciness, some floral and citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nice take on an amber.

isermaja (4) - , Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2010 does not count
First beer I have opened and poured down the drain after a couple of sips. I like hoppy beers and I like ambers, but this was neither. The bitterness was so overwhelming that is was hard to taste much else.

Deep reddish-amber color with a thin tan head. Good lacing. Hops and malt on the nose. Bigger than what I was expecting....good hop flavor (grapefruit and pine) mixed with nice sweet caramel malt tones.
