COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a rainy fall day in 2009, my five-year-old daughter Zoe and I were wandering the streets of Bar Harbor and stumbled across the Whale Museum. Zoe loved it. Hopefully we do the same for you. Cheers! Our Happy, Hoppy, Amber-Ale

You know whats fun? Splitting hairs about style definitions. The Bride & I discussed - at length - if this was a hoppy amber or a full bodied IPA. It doesnt really fit neatly in any category, so we didnt really reach any conclusions. Anyway, you should drink this. Its good. Thanks to my Secret Santa for this one!

Liked this brew on tap the bottle kind of didnt due it for me. think it was a carbonation issue. Did like the price so I will revisit it again These guys like playing with hops

It poured a very dark red with some light brown edges. A small white head appeared for less than a minute. The lacing was light and stuck to the pint glass for a good minute then gently slid down the sides of the glass. The smell was the hops and caramel, some pine and citrus enter in the background. The taste was sweet and bitter between the hops and caramel with some spiciness. The palate was well carbonated with a slightly creaminess coating the mouth and still had a dry finish. Overall, this was impressive.

Starts with a great hop nose and large head, then settles down into a heavy amber once the carbonation starts to come out. Very good and has a lot of bitterness. Alcohol is apparent. I love the idea of a hoppy red, and would like to see this a little lighter-bodied. Wish we had this out here in California!

Pours cloudy brown with a thick tan head. Strong aroma of caramel and spruce with hints of nut and resin. Taste is primarily bitter followed by noticeable sweetness. Texture is creamy with a full body and soft carbonation. Long bittersweet finish. Good for a rainy fall day.

Bottled 9/30/12. Drank 12/5/12. Delicious beer. Pours a beautiful rich brown with ample head. Aroma is a combination of piney/earthy hops with some citrus buried under malt aroma. Flavor is very delicate hop and caramel play with some notes of fresh bread. Finish is clean and hoppy with a lingering malt sweetness. Very nice.

Pint bottle I think! Won this in a fantasy baseball league. pours a deep red with a 2 finger off white creamy head - settles down to a thin lacing. big citrus hop nose with a great caramel malt balance with a bit of spice and vanilla... almost perfect nose - so well balanced. medium body - very smooth and creamy throughout with notes of pineapple, orange, light cranberry, raisin, caramel and red grapes. dry and bitter finish with lingering sweet malts and dark fruits. The best or one of the best amber / red ale Ive had.

peteinSD (1467) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle from Gianni - thanks! Pours dark amber with a very large and rocky light tan head. Aroma is light hop biterness and pine with roasted caramel. Taste is light charred malt with caramel and pine/hop bitterness. Cleen mouthfeel. Nice beer but but the hops are minimal. Must be an out of date bottle.

Billowy tan head with great lacing. Grapefruit aroma and a hoppy scent forward with a malty finish. Deep caramel color. Exceptional balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuts, caramel, and some pine bitterness in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and smooth. Spice and pine hop bitterness in the flavor. Not sure whether this is an amber or a really well balanced IPA, but its very good.
