Bottle. Pours amber with off white head. Some lacing. Grapefruit aroma. Flavor of caramel and some citrusy hops. Definitely wasnít expecting this to be an amber based on the name. Tasted much more like a pale ale. Overall a solid beer.

The pour left an incredibly, fluffy head. This is one of the thickest heads Iíve seen from a brew yet. It has an extremely, well balanced hops aroma. It is golden in color. Itís an quality, hops oriented brew full of flavor and taste.

Hoppy aroma. Balanced with a good crisp body and a strong, dry, bitter hoppy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a chameleon color: itís actually a lighter gold in the light, a darker gold toward amber away from it, hazy with some sediment, and a really huge and quickly forming rocky off-white head that stacks up tall and leaves some intricate clumpy lace. Nose presents as an intensely dry floral pine combo with some grapefruit peel and a dash of sweet grain. If thereís any sweetness, the bitterness completely covers it up, and some tartness actually shows up. Lighter bodied, lots of carbonation, with a puckering dry finish. It doesnít look or act like what youíd expect of an amber. Not sure on the freshness of the bottle I got, but the hops are fairly in your face for a mere 43 IBUs. Itís almost like a ginger ale. Beer cocktail folks could do something with this and gin. Itís a fairly decent brew in its own right, but definitely a surprise.

Clear copper. Hops dominate. Lingering bitterness thatís a touch on the harsh side. Expected amber maltiness, but this is a hoppy beer first.

I really liked it, but wasn't sure whether to rate it as an Amber(what it said on the bottle) or a Pale Ale(what it tasted like). Too malty for a Pale; too hoppy for an Amber...still enjoyed drinking it though.

Pours a dark amber with small white head. Smells of hops and a little citrus. Strong flavor. Pine, little citrus, and lots of hops keep your palate occupied. Overall good beer. Thirsty Dog proves themselves time and time again.

Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber. Hoppy, clean and solid. More of an APA to me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose has a hint of hoppy bitterness to it with caramel malts coming in the forefront. Taste is a little bitter and feels nice and crisp. Good brew.

12 oz. Bottle. More like a one and a half IPA. Stronger than a single, but IMO not quite a double. Sweet citrus hop to piney perfume scent. Bubbly white foamy head over a dark copper, clear pour. Light/med body with a crisp feel. Pine bitter hop flavor to sour citrus note (brief) settling on a meld of both flavors.
