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.

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

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.

22oz bomber from LetsPour poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of off-white head. Malty aroma. Caramel and bread with just a little citrus fruit. Taste is light bitter. Chocolate and caramel with citrus. Kinda reminds me of orange flavored chocolate. Medium bodied with a thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. I’d really like to try more by these guys.

Bottle:   Deep amber, some sediment floats about, absolutely huge rocky sand colored head, with sticky lacing and very strong carbonation.   The head on this is immense, and it wont go down!   That is by far the clumpiest lacing I have ever seen!   Soft sweet malty nose, a little bready.   Smooth maltiness right up front, sweeter than most.   Low hops in this one, its all about the malt and the sweetness.   Very pale nuttiness too.   This one is rather nice.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   A little tangy on the finish.   I liked this one quite a bit.   Low on the hop, stronger on the malts, with more sweetness than average.   Could use a touch more body tho.

Clear amber color/ ivory head. Nice earthy, fruity hop aromas with some tea leaf. Medium bodied. Caramel, pale malt lightly sweet flavors with some pine, tea leaf bitterness to balance--classic pnw amber

650ml bottle pours amber in color with a creamy lasting white head which leaves some fine lacing behind. Light toasted malty aroma. Taste is malty sweet balanced with a nice hoppy bitterness. Nice carbonation and a medium body presented a pleasing mouthfeel. A pleasant tasting ale with much to be desired.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2012
22 ounce bottle purchased from LetsPour, poured a dark amber color with aromas of malt, bread, some molasses, and some caramel. Flavors are the same, decent beer overall.

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

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.
