COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic West coast amber ale named after Brewmaster Bob’s second son. Deceiving, as the hop aroma leads you to believe your palate will be assaulted. But, only 13% of the hops are added in more than 13% of the boil time; yielding a beer intense in hop aroma and flavor, with only a faint bitterness and nice light chocolate and caramel malt backbone lingering.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain and caramel with only a hint of earthy hops. Flavor has a nice citrus note with a bit of flora that finishes with caramel and earthy grain.

Amber pour with creamy tan head and lace. Caramel malt, resiny, and some almost chocolate tones. Sweet caramel, resiny hops, and again what I take as light chocolate. Smooth with good carbonation. Nice beer.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Appearance: Deep amber-hued body with a slim, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Resiny, woodsy hops with some light citrus rind notes over malty accents of toast and caramel with a distant note of roast.

Taste: Toasted malts with an easy roastiness in the background and a sweetness of brown sugar and caramel. Resiny, woodsy, citrusy hops but they’re restrained, particularly the bitterness, which remains light. Malty finish with a final taste of toasted bread and still a fair amount of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Slackened hop bitterness with a nice round maltiness -- I liked it.

Cybercat (3196) - Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Gotta love the homage. This one comes out of the tap a dark, reddish amber bordering on mahogany with a thick, fine-bubbled, light tan head. Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of clove and earthy and woody hints. Scrumptious, delightful flavor is more complex than most ales I have sampled - malty and slightly woody core supports clove, hoppy, nutty and earthy tones. This is an ale to be sipped and savored for its own sake, not chugged during a game! Firm texture is quite lively with a fairly sturdy fizz, leaving sweet malty, earthy and hoppy touches. One of the best ales I have ever enjoyed, maybe even the best!
