Tap. Pours dark amber/light brown, very little head, but what is there laces nicely. Nose is toast, caramel, and a pine/floral hop note. Tastes much the same, with toasted/caramel sweetness well balanced against a resinous bitter hop note. Well balanced, finishes clean and dry.

Jimthechap (1539) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 5, 2014
From tap at The Twisted Hop, Woolston. This beer was just everything you want in an amber ale, a style to which I am particularly partial. It was deep ruby amber with a thick white head with a faint greenish tinge. Aromas tended toward classic American hops with spruce, resin and green herbaceousness aplenty, and this was manifest in the flavour which also had a good twist of chlorophyll bitterness. A lengthy finish as youíd expect, and a strong hankering to have another. I was impressed how well this beer had travelled and wonder how much better it could possibly get from the source?

Quite a robust amber ale that has a good whack of hops built in. A little on the sweet side but I can see why this rates so well.

12 oz. bottle. Bottled 05/30/14. Pours a medium, light beige, well retained head, with some lacing, over a clear light brown (SRM 20) body....nose is light pine, hints of resin,, hints of toffee/caramel, no esters.....taste is slightly sweet to start, with toffee/caramel tones, light cocoa, pine, resin light citrus, no esters, moderate bitter finish, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, no alcohol, slight astringency, moderate acid finish, light tingle from carbonation. This is a very hoppy Amber, nicely balanced, but would be off putting to the standard Amber drinker. It is another of the craft "style breaker" beers. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

On Tap. Pours dark amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, ripe fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and crisp. Caramel malt, citrusy hops and red berries nicely balanced on the pallet. Finish is long, dry, and bitter. Very tasty brew.

Bottled March 13, 2014.
Appearance: The body is a crystal clear gorgeous hue of garnet with a dense tan had.
Aroma: The aroma is a bit restrained but caramel and general malt sweetness is apparent with a hint of sweet orange and grassy hops. The aroma smells very nice and clean, itís a shame itís not stronger.
Taste: Mildly hoppy from the start with a tangerine hop flavor accompanied by an underlying caramel and nutty malt base. Very nicely balanced with a slight sweet leaning edge to it. The hop flavor becomes a touch candy orange like by the end.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Iím impressed with how well this is done. I like the balance through it and the flavor combinations. I would like to drink this a bit fresher, but itís still nice 3 months in!

Bottle. I never really drink too many amber ales, but had to try this because of the label and name. It was quite a nice brew. A lot more toffee and caramel taste than I am used to ambers, with nice slick toasty mouth feel. It also had quite a bit of hopping too, a really unique amber.

Pours a ruby red with a thin white head. Aroma is hard to place..fairly horrible. Taste is similar...not good. Thereís a fairly disgusting aftertaste....
