Pick a hop pack. 341ml, 6%abv. As the name says, it pours ruby, if not amber in color. The head is tight, and tan colored. It has good retention, and sticks to the glass. Subtle aroma with notes of molasses, and sweet citrus. The smooth base of pale, crystal, and victory malt is well complimented by the cascade hops. Medium carbonation and some chewiness. Overall, smooth, satisfying, and a good example of a hop forward amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of malts and hops. Probably the best amber IPA I have tried. Nice hops and not overwhelming malts - incredible balance.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at West Coast Brew Fest 2014. Pours copper with a white head. Light fruit/malt aromas. Med body, maybe. Flavor is roast malt with very little hop. Itís an amber. Good for an amber tho.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Hazy dull amber, leafy, floral and light caramel aroma, a bit fizzy, but nice fruity, floral character. Kind of yeasty and muddled, though, tough to get through a full one.

dfinney23 (1573) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours more garnet than ruby with thin head that leaves nice lacing. Good hop/malt balance -- mostly caramel and pine.

Bottle to pint glass, beer pours a ruby red with a slightly off white foam top which fades fairly quickly and needed a lot of convincing to come out in the first place. Aroma is hop forward, grass, mint, cheese, slight pineyness...very faint biscuit. Meh. Taste again is more hop forward stuff but balances better with the malt and is accompanied by medicinal and slight spice. Palate is nice and crisp, thin bodied, co2 is on the low side. Balance is pretty good and the alcohol undetectable. Overall a decent beer, very drinkable but not one I think Iíll buy again as I find it a bit simple. However that may be one of itís advantages...it goes very well with food.

Pours mahogany in the glass with a nice head. Floral notes on the nose. Citrus on the tongue. Some complexity with this beer. Finishes a touch bitter.

Tap, craft beer Hall. Mild Aroma, slightly less body than expected. Sharp caramel metallic flavour. Decent though.
