Got a growler of this one at the brewery. It poured the expected amber color with minimal head. The aroma was strongly hopped, as was the taste of a spruce/citrus combination. It went down well and would be a good session beer. It’s more than just "slightly-more-hopped."
Hints of dishwater, pine needles, cedar bark and malt. Not a bad amber just a bit over hopped. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2016

From BnC. Decent Amber ale, a somewhat strongly hopped, peppery piney hops. Pale amber. Serving: Can Christpuncher (3215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2015
A decent amber ale. Slightly sweet and malty with a slight malt hop backbone Pours light orange in color. Had a draft at Geneva ridge hotel. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2015
[Can] Medium shade of amber in color. Not much head or lacing to speak of. Nose is of pine and bready malts. Flavor has a mild vegetal hop kick to it. Otherwise, more caramel, bread and toast notes. Highly carbonated. Almost a soda-like quality to it. Wasn’t great, but not terrible either. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

I loved this Amber Ale from Geneva Lake. It was fresh, buttery, and smooth. Pleasant. arkurzynski (2460) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Reddish amber pour. Nose of light citrus and pine hopping with toasted/candied malt hanging in the background. Flavor is toasted malt and citrus hopping. Light nuttiness with lingering hops and caramel/toasted malt. This was quite an enjoyable amber. Much better show than the wheat. Bbiegrl22 (9) - - AUG 8, 2013 does not count
Who watchout! Not your typical Amber. I would have rated this lower if the brewer didn’t warn me ahead of time. What a nice twist on a traditional beer. Plesantly suprised! doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Golden-amber, white head, great lacing and head retention. Lemon,floral, grain, and corn aroma. Medium bodied, lemony, tart bitterness that lingers.

Had this on draft in their taproom. Orange pour. Bitter taste. Carmel and earthy aroma. Not bad
