Amber colored beer with a big bubbled ivory colored head. Roasted grain nose with some faint smoke. Full flavored beer with strong citrus/grapefruit hops over a light toasted bread/caramel maltiness. There is an almost smoky sense to it. Some fruit, acidity, and a long bitter grapefruit rind finish. this is a solid, creative beer.

Bottle, but had this on draft before too. Pours a nice clear copper color with an obnoxiously big foamy head that fades very slowly. Aroma is faint, toasted malt, caramel, some grassy/floral hops. Taste is really good though. The toasted amber malt is the focus here and I like it. Dry floral and spicy hops show up in the finish. I’m obviously in the minority here but I really like this beer and find myself buying it fairly often.

I know that Pale Ale’s are a preferred taste, but this was way too bitter for me; I couldn’t even bring myself to finish the ones I bought.

Dark red/brown with sticky off-white lacing. Very light nose of roasted hop. Palate is hoppy but with a definite roast/campfire flavor. Citrus and grass flavors are also present. Good. Different.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Sean and Amber (2beerguys.com). Look is a hazy brown ale with thin white head that showed plenty of retention. Lots of retention. Nose is hops with slightly roasted malt. Light effervescence with spicy hops. Light lingering hops. Nice to try.

A somewhat unique one. Pours reddish amber with fluffy head. Lacing abounds as the aroma of roasty malt and hops comes off the top. Very roasted flavor up front, and strong bitter finish. I liked this one or its unique flavors. Interesting! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy amber color. Medium body and head. Sour overtones are surprising for an amber ale. Not much "floral" IMO.

12 ounce bottle thanks to hopdog. A sweet biscuit and caramel nose. The flavor is spicy, light strawberries, caramel, very smooth and fruity.

12 ounce thanks to mikem409. Chocolate a bit for an amber. Bit of malty and caramel finishes it off.

Bottle. Both a malt and hop aroma... Roasted. Carbonation is high, bitter taste and lingering finish. Decent beer but I wouldn’t run back.
