COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No one can deny the beer climate is changing. Extreme bittering patterns and massive flavor oscillations are the new normal.

Ughsmash (7121) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2014
12oz can. Poured hazy sunset orange with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up fairly fresh pine, grass, and grapefruity hoppage over very sweet caramel.. lots of peppery alcohol warmth on the back of the nose.. aiight. The flavor found sweet caramel and lesser bready notes at the core with very bitter pine, black pepper, and citrus bitterness around.. finished grainy with muddled with sweet malts, hot booze, and lingering bitterness. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated.. too bitter and abrasive.. didn’t leave a good impression.

[Can] Bright amber in color with a quickly receding white head. Sweet and toasted nose. Sticky caramel taste is mixed with a potent kick of citrus hop. I don’t think this a true ’amber’, but it’s just fine nevertheless. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

McNeillR (1133) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Hazy clogged amber, yellowed foamy head. Cheesy and big pick ’n mix malt sweetness. Rich and rumbling limey bitterness throughout. Soapy floral, sweet burning (warming, ha!) and earthy. Wholesome howl of bitterness on the finish, itchy enough carbonation kicks into a burst of dry well on the linger.

Can, Cheers CGarvieUK, April Not So Fools Tasting

This has been "aging" it in the fridge for a few months. Ha. Thought this was going to be a dark beer for some reason so was confused upon pouring from the can to a pint glass. I was gentle, so very little head which dissipated quickly. Starts off with a lot of big hoppy flavor, then nothing, like a giant acidic void in my mouth, then, a wet sweetness on the finish. Like honey, but not your typical honey - some fancy artisanal honey that comes from bees who only collect their pollen from lavender and lime blossoms. With some subtle malty notes in there, too. Such variety, it’s like drinking a full Greek tragedy with each mouthful. Tasty.

drjay44 (2605) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours a thick, well retained ivory head, with extensive lacing over a dark amber (SRM 17) hazy, particle laden body.....nose is heavy pine, citrus peel, light cereal, hints of caramel....taste is pine, citrus peel, from the hops,light cereal, hints of caramel sweetness, finishing with a moderate lingering bitterness....mouth feel, body medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, mild acid. This is an Amber that is almost a typical IPA. It is obviously an American Amber, with the large dose of hops. The appearance, especially from a can was a surprise, and a disappointment. BJCP 7/1/14/4/6
