The Hops are booming on this ale. You can smell them, you can taste them.
Not overdone, as some micros do these "hoppy ales".
Clear red/amber. Sorry - this is not my favorite category or i might have rated this higher.

Dry hopped with cascade and server out of a cask. Deep amber/copper color. lots of spice and citrus aroma. Light bready flavor with caramel and toffee and lots of old school citrus. Nice beer.

floral aromas dominate this copper colored amber ale. lacing is good but doesn’t linger, head is minimal. initial sweet maltiness is followed up by the floral hops which give it a nice light bitterness which doesn’t linger. I think its a great beer for ipa lovers who maybe want to enjoy another style and still feel a little bit of an ipa’s bitterness.

Bouteille 330 ml. Achetée au Half Time (Poughkeepsie). Robe ambrée et collet beige. Au nez, un bouquet fortement houblonnée. En bouche, l’amertume du houblon est bien tempérée par le malt caramélisé. Sans aucune doute l’une des meilleures Amber ales que j’ai bues jusqu’à maintenant.

Bottle from sampler pack. This was my favorite of the four styles. Pours a nice, dark amber. Aroma has plenty of dark fruit, floral hops, caramel and cereal malts, and light toast. Flavor was great; sweet malts and dark fruit esters expected from an amber, but the nice addition of hops sets it apart.

Pours an awesome glowing orange-crimson with a thick, creamy khaki head that settles slowly and leaves some hanging lace. Nose includes some pine resin, mango, pineapple, candied orange, some spice and floral notes, and sweet caramel notes. Taste is fairly sweet but plenty bitter. Medium bodied, pretty actively carbed, with a substantially long bitter finish. Even at 5 months old, this has held up very well. Perhaps the nose would pop a little more with hop notes were it super fresh, but I’m very happy with it as is. A good go to brew for those in the distribution footprint.
