Kind of dissapointed after having the Jamaica Brand IPA. Nonetheless good. Tan, redish in color. balance of malts and hops works well. I enjoyed it but would not buy it again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky brown color with a massive, thick, rich head. the aroma was pure hops...some citrus, but mainly a floral mix that was on the sweet side. The flavor was more malty...considerable hops (considering this is NOT an IPA.) Very very good amber ale.

Bottle. A dark slightly hazy reddish brown color with a laced brown head. A hop and cherry aroma. A big malt flavor with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

LOTS of hop aroma and very bitter, like an IPA. Whoa. This may call itself and amber ale, but it lies! Many may live its emphatic hoppiness, but I find this brew one-dimensional and predictable. After all, I've already tried 90-minute IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2003 This beer is unfiltered and a nice brown color. My wife thought I was drinking ice tea (what a great disguise!). I like carmel and this beer has a carmel taste to it. Overall this is one of my favorite Ales.

Big resieny hop flavor and aroma. Some Fruit in the flavor - blueberry?- but not a whole lot. Not at all clean tasting, in fact the earthyness was very appealing.

Pours a clear, deep brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is nicely fruity and hoppy with a touch of malt sweetness. Full bodied with medium carbonation, the flavor is mostly hoppy with a nice caramel maltiness underneath. The finish is slightly bitter and full of hops. This is a nice amber/red ale, plenty of character and taste.

this is a well hopped beer, but the other aspects of it leave something to be desired. the malt is good and sweet at first bit it is not very complex and end up being a little tangy ans weird in the end. the head retention is none existant. the aroma is subtle, and i dont mean that in the good way, i mean that there just isnt much to smell.
