A delicious and aromatic sweetly hoppy amber ale. Slightly dank, with citrus exploding out of each sip. Hoppy leaning but a pretty nice balance since the hops are more flavor and aroma and less bitter. Nice, nice brew

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from unknown via Denver. Pours a translucent amber, just a bit of off-white head. Aroma is indeed dank, lots of resinous notes and maybe some citrus peel as well, very heady, with a hint of Munich malt as well. Arch and dry with a fluffy quality to the finish. I’m not generally into hops, but this is pleasant enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can on a balcony in Newport Beach on 10th July 2014 while on holiday at my daughters. Not too sure what to make of this beer ’dank’ in English = dull and uninteresting, I wondered why they advertised the fact on the tin. Anyway it means something else in the US apparently. Poured a hazy dull amber (dank in fact), the head large and staying. Hops all over the place, up my nose, down my throat, in my ears and through my skin pores. This is a hoppy amber beer without a doubt. Bitter from start to finish with an almost harsh dry aftertaste. Good if you are into hops, otherwise keep away.

My good buddy Syndicate hooked this one up a couple weeks back.. Finally got around to it tonight while enjoying some brews and getting some backlog work done... Thanks Darrell!!
Pours a pretty muddy looking amber... light tan head.. good retention and lacing.
Nose has plenty of sticky piney hops, but a resolute malt profile brings dry toast, caramel and IMO, a pretty big hit of diacetyl...
Flavor begins with a good bitter bite and then moves immediately into pithy grapefruit/big pine... malts take over and provide a lingering toasted bread playground for the hops that go on and on.. With warmth a little buttery note is magnified by the residual sweetness... but also a tropical fruity hoppiness emerges as well..
Nice body and pretty drinkable... I personally don’t care for the abundant darker caramel malty/toasty profile in this high percentage, but it is still well done... Thanks once again Darrel!!

Draft at Beercraft. Amber/ ruby color. Aroma is a ton on resin and pine with light caramel sweetness. In the flavor caramel malts and hints of toffee are here however, the pine resin is a little over done. Comes off a bit unbalanced. Long lasting, lingering pine with a dry texture.

Dark orange. Nose is super piney. Lots of pine cone and sweet west coast maltiness. Explosive mouthfeel. Really intense sweetness, crystal and pale malt with insanely piney almost dank resinous from the core of a pine trees. Intensely bitter. Sticks around a while

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours cloudy amber, small head, fades to a thin ring. Great aroma. Very dank. Pineapple, mango, kiwi, grapefruit, peach, biscuits, and light caramel. Tastes juicy and delicious. Lots of tropical nelson hops. Some biscuity malt mixes in well. Very dank at first but turns super juicy by the finish. Citrus peels and light white wine in the finish too. Medium body. Delicious beer. Another canned beer I wish I could by on the shelf near me.
