COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First of Monday Nightís Black Tie series. Finally, a fresh hop beer that wears flannel year-round, listens to only vinyl, and writes his journal on a typewriter. This rich, fresh amber ale has just the right amount of "you probably havenít heard of it," including a large dose of fresh Chinook hops. In fact, fresh Chinook hops are the only hops used in this beer. Think of them as the single gear on his fixed gear bike, as he rides his skinny-jeaned self into the harvest season. Chinook hops. The obscure ones. Piney and citrus notes should come through. Victory, Munich and Crystal malts lend a little bit of biscuit and caramel flavor.

Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is pine hops with a slight bit of sweet malt. Flavor is fairly sharp pine hops which finish surprisingly clean. Not too resinous or sticky, but with a bit of caramel malt in the finish. Pretty enjoyable and very drinkable. Wife:4.1

22 oz. bottle pours an amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of metal, light sweet malt, soap. Light bodied, not really that good.

22 oz. bottle. Nice copper color, with a big, bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is immediate caramel, with some cloves, mild earthiness, and some light piney hops. Sweet flavor, with just a little mild bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth, and velvety. This is a nice, mellow beer. Good flavor, and excellent mouthfeel.

bottle. slightly cloudy copper with a large head. earthy hop aroma with bread malt. big bready victory malt flavors which i donít care for, touches of toffee and a light manageable citrus and black tea note from the chinook. medium bodied and slurpy palate. they a good job with this...donít expect a hop bomb. it seems as if they used the fresh hops for the whole boil so its not very bitter. if you like victory malt then this beer is for you i suppose.

Bottle. The look is clear, copper colored, and a beige colored head. The smell is hops, light, malt, and cardboard. The taste is malty, cardboard, hops, and ok.

mixmasterob (881) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Clear amber pour with a frothy white head. Stuck around nicely. Aroma was quite malty up front, caramel. Once swirled a bit some light citrus, earthy hop and woody notes came in. Flavors followed suit with good bits of caramel, slight citrus and a dry woody finish. Mouthfeel was medium to light, velvety carbonation was a plus. You need to give this one a minute to grow on you before jumping to conclusions. Quite nice once it opens up.

unclemattie (4116) - Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2013
22oz bottle. Silver&black label. Amber color, light tan foam. Aroma of sweet, toasted malts. Hints of honey. Tastes of an Amber Ale. Toasted malts, sessionable, toasted bread, autumn air, earthy notes. Finishes with an earthly character. If there is a beer I could drink everyday, it is this style. Perfect balance. Very well done.

Half-growler poured into a pint glass. Overall a pretty mediocre amber ale. Murky flavors that arenít bad, but just indistinct. Probably wouldnít order it again.
