COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a rainy fall day in 2009, my five-year-old daughter Zoe and I were wandering the streets of Bar Harbor and stumbled across the Whale Museum. Zoe loved it. Hopefully we do the same for you. Cheers! Our Happy, Hoppy, Amber-Ale

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours deep amber with a thick, fluffy, light tan head. Aroma of caramel malts and some cereal and bread plus a lot of citrusy and piney hops. Flavor about the same, strong on the hops. Smooth texture. A really good beer.

Amber colored, lots of healthy foam. Aroma is caramels, spicy hops, earthy. Taste is similar, seems a touch too sweet for my taste, or at least since I’m expecting IPA because of the hops it seems too sweet. I dunno, good for an amber ale, but then again because of the massive hops it isn’t really technically an amber.

In bottle. Pours a hazel colour with a thin, light tan head. Lovely hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, passion fruit and coffee. Similar flavours with pine, pineapple, coffee and roasty malt. Moderate carbonation with a foamy mouth-feel and a dry finish. Lovely.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2012
From bottle shop in Philly. Pour is a dark amber, with a caramel hue. Super fresh pine hops upfront in the aroma and initial sip... is this an IPA? Then melts into a vivacious malty crisp tang.. extraordinary.

BOLTZ7555 (2710) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Dark chestnut, crimson pour with a lively ivory head that leaves rows of lacing inside the glass. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, citrus, and earthy fresh-cut grass. Lots of dark fruit, toffee, chocolate, dough, and lemon zest. Highly drinkable and delicious...wish we had unlimited access to this. Not traditionally a fan of ambers but definitely a fan of this!

hivemind (693) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Andy split w Andy, Streets. Pours black with a thick, foamy, mostly bubble-less tan head that reduces but never disappears. Aroma is sweet, sweet malts and some pine. Flavor is rich, sweet chocolate. Really well balanced and a touch roasty. Some maple syrup and spice, too. Medium to heavy mouthfeel. Syrupy notes stand out more and more as it goes down.

MJGG (926) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
Bouteille de 500 ml. Arômes très intéressants de houblon résineux et fruité et de malt rappelant les fruits rouges et le caramel foncé. Robe rubis plutôt foncée, effervescence d’intensité moyenne et belle mousse qui tient bien. En bouche, le houblon aromatique est très frais, présentant une personnalité fruitée et résineuse. Le malt contribue une présence de caramel brûlé et de fruits rouges, mais demeure adéquatement pas trop sucré. Finale présentant une amertume d’intensité moyenne. Cette bière présente plusieurs points en commun avec une Arrogant Bastard et est également excellente.

Rojo oscuro que a contraluz se ve de un rojo bien intenso. Buena espuma y buen aroma alupulos citricos. En boca entra suave pero luego se siente un cuerpo de mediana inensidad, el alcohol ni se siente...peligrosa! Destaca por su amargor citrico, bien rica. Como para conocedores y para los iniciados que gustan de una buena cerveza amarga. Me gusto mucho, ideal para el verano ya que es refrescante, sin dejar de ser una cerveza interesante. Bien equilibrada. Un 10 para este verano!
