Translucent and ruby red in color. A foamy off white head that is one finger in depth, disspates farily quickly. Grapefruit forward in the aroma with a malty backbone. A lot of carbonation in this beer. Definite grapefruit in the taste along with grassy and herbal notes. Nice caramel undertones with a lingering bitterness.

Clear amber pour with light tan head. Aroma is malty and nutty. Taste follows nose. Roast nut and a hint of copper. Very nice.

Flight at brewery. Way more hoppy than I would expect for an amber. Should like it more than I do as the style is usually overly sweet and malty for my palate. Hops come through first and smooth maltiness comes through mid-palate. Finishes dry. Pours a copper color with a nice tan head. Looks more like a brown. Dankness of Columbus hops is muted. Somewhat astrigent. and resiny. Will give it another go. Take one for the team.

Pours a reddish brown with plenty of white head which diminishes to a light lacy coating. Smells of lemongrass with a hint of wheat. Taste is crisp and refreshing with citrus hints.

Beautiful looking amber. Perfect balance between hops and malt with a lovely mouthfeel. Not many better ambers around!

Pours a deep burgundy red bordering on brown, with an immensely frothy brown head that reminds me of the layer of foam you would find on an indulgent milkshake. Aroma is resinous hops and slight oily nut aroma. Taste is caramel, hazelnuts and bitter finish with some grapefruit thrown in somewhere. Full bodied. One of the best ambers I have had, malty sweet and hop bitter.

A very nice malt arome with some sweetness. A very balanced amber with plenty of hops, what a great amber!

500, capped. Pours a murky medium amber with a loose and sudsy stacked tan head. Big sweet light caramel and bright grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Great balance of malt and hops in a perfectly leveled body weight. Great refreshing and complex beer showing flavors very well.

22 Oz bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a frothy brown head that lingers. Aroma is primarily resiny hops with some hazelnut. Flavor is strong resiny hops and sweet cereal grain. Sweetness gives way to a lingering, herby hop linger. Full body with a sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, really nice balance on this beer. Simple hop character, a bit sweet, but does all characteristics of beer well.
