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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
341 mL Bottle. Amber body with a small frothy off-white head leaving lots of stringy lace.The aroma is sweet light malts with subtle hints of vanilla and caramel, and grapefruit-resiny hops. Sweet light malts and crystal malt dominate, then there is an astringent / spicy aftertaste and a piquant part that I absolutely love. and then shades of the crystal malt and hops merge in the finish. Gorgeous! Bonus points for a very one-of-kind-mouthfeel.
