Tap sample at Great Nebraska Beer Fest. Pours amber, white head. Aroma was caramel, pine. Taste was bittersweet, citrus, pine. MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 29, 2016
A bit of an unusual Amber... if it’s appropriate to call it that. Like many West Coast Ambers it’s highly hopped for the style. Amber color and off-white suds. There is toasted character. It’s got citrusy hops and typical Amber Ale notes of caramel and biscuit. There’s a chocolaty note at mid-mouth which would be really nice except it comes against a hoppy earthiness. Interesting yet it doesn’t quite work. HuskerTan (2201) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - AUG 28, 2016
A- Amber color, hazy liquid, off white head.
T- Caramel, bready.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- Who are these guys and why did they come to a Nebraska fest? Anyways, it was certainly not an IPA as listed here. Definitely an Amber and tasted like an amber. Pretty boring. Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is a lot of pine resin.
The taste starts with mild lemon bitterness, then middle to end is a big pine resin bitter. Not my favorite flavor.
The texture is crisp.
It has an intense resin smell and flavor which is great if you like that. slowrunner77 (12040) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"more like a hoppy amber than a west coast ipa...as an ipa, it’s a bit melow. as an amber, it’s fairly aggressive, if not great. an enjoyable beer. refreshing

On tap at the brewery. Pours orangey copper with an off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. They describe this beer as their hoppiest but it’s not. There’s a little citrus in the aroma and a little bitterness in the flavor, but this is just a chewy sweet malty amber/red thing. GenDV138 (7284) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Draft pour as part of the full sampler at Hoppy Brewing. Clear amber with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, floral notes, biscuit. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, biscuit, toast. Medium body with a dry finish. Finhead (1761) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Hazy, amber with a rocky, white head. The aroma has caramel, mild pine, wheat, and faint butterscotch. It has a light, thin body with lively carbonation. The taste is a little bland with a bitter finish that fades quickly. gyllenbock (9157) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Sample at SF Beer Week Opening Gala 2014.
A bit hazy amber with a foamy head. Aroma and taste of hops, biscuits, ligth malt and some hay. Easy to drink and not that bitter.

22 ounce bottle, poured an amber color with aromas of caramel, toast, bread, and light hops. Flavors were the same, not much hops in the flavor, ok overall.
