On tap at New Old Lompoc, NW Portland. Amber/red with beige head. Good amber beer, nice hops, slightly nitro feel. Bit stripped, fruity malt, berry fruits. Hop, just a bit artificial. I thought an ale didn’t have hops? This is a nitro amber surely?

Deep red color, small off-white head. Caramelly, bready aroma. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Front is caramelly, then some toasted, ryeish maltyness. Finish has some hops and alcohol. Decent "Imperial Red" (err... working class red I mean).

I wonder why an amber is classed as IPA. On to the investigation of a bomber from Big Star in Seattle. Pours ruddy amber with a slight beige head. Smells like light roast malt without much hop. Flavor is moderately roasted malt with not much hop. This is not an IPA IMHO. Pretty blah amber IMHO.
