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.

Draft pour at 192. Pours a dark red with an incredible fresh hops aroma. Drew me into this one right away. Really nice hop forward flavor with a nice malt balance. Really good beer here. Bitter finish. Very impressed.

Not bad overall. Its saving grace is a nice toasty malt note. Otherwise, however, this is an above-average amber.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice beer with tons of malt forward flavors. I was hoping for more balance with the hops. Not bad needs more Hops.

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.

Ratman197 (9961) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bomber poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, carmel, light fruittiness and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, carmel and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

Pours a dark ruby red with a small white ring. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet candy and earthy hop. Taste is fairly bland, caramel malts, sweetness and a very small hop presence. Would like more hops.

drpimento (2269) - 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.

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