COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dry-hopped ale combines caramel and biscuit malt flavors in happy equilibrium with late addition American hops. The approachable balance is intentional, although the name is a "hoppy" accident.

Amber with a white head. Lightly hoppy, citrus, caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied. Nice amber ale and a good break from overly hoppy everything.

12 ounce can, canned on 11/07/2014. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit, citrus peel) and floral hops, and caramel and bready malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also a bit of orange noticeable too. Great balance between the hoppy and malty flavors. There’s also a nice hoppy bitter finish, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating and is well carbonated. I liked this brew, I might have to pick up a sixer of this soon. Got to try it at $1.67 a can, definitely worth picking up!

Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a decent off white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is sweet grapefruit. Taste is sweet caramel malt, toast, grapefruit and mild hop bitterness.

DialSquare (3113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2014
On tap at Daily Growler, UA. Copper orange pour, white-ish ring. Aroma of toffee, caramel. Tastes of sweet malt, little toasty. I’m not at all an amber fan, but this was non-offensive for the style. 6.6

pete4999 (1166) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Can. Nice beer, flavorful. Not too heavy on the hops, as expected. A little bit of caramel, nice malt backbone with a little bit of a bite.

Mad tree happy amber is a dark amber liquid that is slightly hazy and has a thin head of small bubbles. Nose is sharp with cedar hops. Taste is crisp with a good amount of hops and roasted malt. Body is lively. Finish is crisp and with good bitters.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Amber pour with a frothy head. Malt aromas are overpowered by the hop presence. Big hop flavors (almost tastes like an IPA) keep the biscuit and caramel malts from even having a shot at showing up. Way too hoppy.

fluffy (1847) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2014
A pretty nice amber, maybe similar to say CCB tocobaga? Mildly hoppy but well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
