COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Despite the tranquil calm of the Emerald Coast, the water can be treacherous! When the red and yellow flags are out, swim out too far and your best friend will be the lifeguard stationed on the beach. On second thought, a lifeguard rescue might be the perfect way to start your summer vacation. Share your Rip Tide Amber and find a friend for life. Trust us, sipping on our amber ale will be the best rip tide you’ll ever experience. Our Rip Tide Amber is a smooth and flavorful brew. Don’t worry about getting dragged under, you can drink Rip Tide without leaving the shore. The only thing you’ll be pulled to do is order another pint or take home a growler.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Rated on 3-01-2014 at Naples Craft Beer Fest in Naples, Florida. This draft beer pours a small beige head that mostly diminished, hazy amber body, no carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma consist of caramel malt, toast, nutty, light toffee, and grassy hops. The taste is sweet, grain, lightly bitter, caramel malt, and nutty. The palate is very smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable, a session beer and a beer I would drink again.

Taster at the brewery. Pours almost clear medium brown with a creamy off white head. Tastes malty, bready, like grains, dried apples, musky. Light body and medium carbonation. Decent lacing. Smells like light grains and nuts.

DocJitsu (998) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours a clear copper-amber color with a sticky, nitrogen-like, light tan head. The nose is comprised of a bit of sour milk, creamy toffee, and some light fruitiness. Moderately thick and smooth mouthfeel with a hint or two of a carbonation burn. There’s a peculiar, homebrew-like off flavor. Mellow toffee and fruitiness blend indistinguishably.

rosenbergh (7081) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Draught at the Pensacola Bay Brewery Taproom, Pensacola, FL. Clear amber colour with a small creamy white head. Mild dry hops, malt and woody dryness in the aroma. The flavour is very dry with hops, malt and wood. Very dry for an Amber Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
