COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bold amber is hoppy and unfiltered in the classic Pacific Northwest Style. We combine premium 2-Row, Aromatic, Melanoidin, and Crystal malts to form a pleasant malty base, then add enough Crystal and Mt. Hood hops to create a balanced beer with a citrusy hop finish. This beer is easy to enjoy by itself, and pairs well with most foods.

Bottled. Pours an attractive red brown with substantial head. Starts strong on the hops and finishes heavy on the malts. 1-2 punch.

drpimento (2173) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Poured (probably too) cold right out of the fridge with a thick, gold tinged cream head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a clear honey amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is hop at first then a nice heavy caramel with a little toffee, malt. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, heavy carbonic tang, not a lot going on. Body’s a tad thin while carbonation is a bit overbearing. Finish is like flavor, short, and totally forgettable. Wish I could’ve let this warm a bit first.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Chocolatey aroma. Thick and lightly bitter. Nutty and smooth with a long-lasting finish. Definitely one of the better ones I’ve had from them.

mikedR (1087) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Not bad overall. Its saving grace is a nice toasty malt note. Otherwise, however, this is an above-average amber.

oc4111 (119) - USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. Faint aroma of malt with just the ever slightest hint of hops. Taste sits right in the middle between hops and malt. Decent beer.

deep rich ruby color with pronounced hops, finishes with better hop notes than most ambers. well balanced and a good session ale

It’s a good beer, presentation not the best but pretty good taste. Tried better ones.
