A very drinkable IPA. Low hop aroma, but faint notes of floral and citrus hops. Great malt character is balanced with clean hop bite. Earthy and slight pine quality to hop flavor. Front end hop bitterness finishes clean.

12 fl oz can, bought at Total Wine and drunk in a hotelroom in Las Vegas. But I was in NM in 2010 drank a beer of that brewery but wasn´t rating at that time. Pours out in the glass in an unclear dark orange, nearly two finger foamy head. Pine and floral hop on the nose. Taste starts with malt and resin, hopy bitterness, some floral elements and hints of citrus in the background. Really nice.

From Can. Amber pour with a big rocky off-white head that has crazy lacing and very good retention Aroma is some mild with caramel, pine and grapefruit. Taste was watered down citrus set in a caramel malt base. Palate is thin and weak. Finishes short and forgettable. Overall: meh, I’m kinda pissed I bought a sixer of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at American Beer at the Linq Mall in Las Vegas. Not really an amber ale, more like an IPA. Slightly hazy light copper with a thin white head. Some very slight hints of caramel, but the taste is dominated by American-style hops giving a taste of pine resin and grass. Dry and better finish. Not bad at all.

Solid brew, but it’s a little malt-forward for an IPA. Very sweet, and I couldn’t really pick out a ton from the hop flavor except bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2015 6 pack from Utah- thanks Carson! Totally west coast- pine is prevalent and somewhat overwhelming. Nice hazy orange pour with a white head. Slick/oily mouthfeel and pine/citrus all the way through. Bitterness about right. Ever so slightly boozy. Good, solid west coast style IPA.

Can. Pours a cloudy copper color with a thick, laced head. Strong, dark hoppy aroma with some malt and tart. Smooth taste. Tart and hops mixed in. Not overpowering. But a good balance. Not too shabby.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours with a medium dark beige head, the beer is a dark amber to bronze color
Aroma: grass, pine, caramel malt,
Taste: assertive bitterness, has a caramel malt backbone, alcohol, has some darker smoke subtle flavor too
Palate: lingering bitter aftertaste, average carbonation, medium mouthfeel
Overall: could use a bit better aftertaste, it lingers in an unpleasant way, not my favorite ipa
