2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A bit of an unusual Amber... if itís appropriate to call it that. Like many West Coast Ambers itís highly hopped for the style. Amber color and off-white suds. There is toasted character. Itís got citrusy hops and typical Amber Ale notes of caramel and biscuit. Thereís a chocolaty note at mid-mouth which would be really nice except it comes against a hoppy earthiness. Interesting yet it doesnít quite work.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A- Amber color, hazy liquid, off white head.
T- Caramel, bready.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- Who are these guys and why did they come to a Nebraska fest? Anyways, it was certainly not an IPA as listed here. Definitely an Amber and tasted like an amber. Pretty boring.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is a lot of pine resin.
The taste starts with mild lemon bitterness, then middle to end is a big pine resin bitter. Not my favorite flavor.
The texture is crisp.
It has an intense resin smell and flavor which is great if you like that.

"more like a hoppy amber than a west coast ipa...as an ipa, itís a bit melow. as an amber, itís fairly aggressive, if not great. an enjoyable beer. refreshing

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangey copper with an off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. They describe this beer as their hoppiest but itís not. Thereís a little citrus in the aroma and a little bitterness in the flavor, but this is just a chewy sweet malty amber/red thing.
