Pours a lusciously dark amber color & light head. A very fuller (thicker hop taste, maltier, more alcoholic) amber ale. Slightly sweet, stronger taste. Solid stuff.

Pours light amber with abundant and foamy head. Refuses to come down, quite luscious. Aroma hoppy, not only grass and herbal notes but also something really dank and slightly funky. Getting lots of hop oils, almost hop extract levels. Taste reveals also light and well hopped body, nice bitterness that is dominating but in a nice and enjoyable way. Malty body is still somewhat recognisable but giving way to hops that jump forward and define this beer. Overall, nice and drinkable, I would say feels more like an IPA than an amber. explosivedog (1101) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 20, 2017
440ml can. Pours a deep caramel colour with a little head. Lots of sweet toffee, some orange peel, some pepper, maybe a touch of lemon in the finish. Sweet, bitter, and, admittedly, pretty dank. Very nice. ajnepple (6428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2017
16 oz single can from Total Wine & More - Laguna Hills. Amber and pretty clear in appearance with a white head. Aroma of mild citrus fruit, bread, caramel malt, toffee, pine and light grassy/floral notes. Similar flavor, adding moderate malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Medium body with a balanced finish. Solid amber ale overall, but nothing special. tderoeck (9471) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2017

Clear orange beer, creamy irregular yellowish head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty dank, sweet, malty, caramel, some tropical fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malts, lots of caramel, some tropical fruits, but very faint. Aftertaste: alcohol, sweet malts, bit resinous, hoppy touch, some peach. Nice but getting pretty old already...
473ml can. Pours a hazy copper-amber with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, orange, grapefruit, tropical fruit, peach and pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, biscuit, peach, apricot, tropical fruit, orange peel, tangerine and pine resin with a dry, bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Awesome, by far the hoppiest amber I have ever tried. A world class amber.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton (Modern Times Tap Takeover) pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some caramel. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted brew that is tasty and balanced, but not a dark amber, more of a hybrid IPA. Zeswaft (1768) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Can. Copper/amber cloudy. Malt dominates. Sweet, biscuity. In the middle are some juicy, fruity hop flavors. Mango, mandarine. High bitterness. the_beergery (62) - - MAY 31, 2017
1 pint can. From the blurb on the can, it appears that this brew is aggressively hopped, like a pale ale or an IPA, over a amber ale malt base. Appearance-wise, this amber ale pours an almost-clear deep amber shade, with a good head of froth, which manages to persist for a while before receding a a thin ring. Aroma-wise, hops are forward and everywhere! Floral and citrus notes dominate, but more of the pine and resin in particular, with almost undetectable doughy, biscuity malt notes. Taste-wise, again it is dank, following the hops, mainly piney, grassy and resin flavours with a little but of fruitiness, above a light wheat malt backbone, and a bitter finish. Palate-wise, it has a nice, average level of carbonation, a somewhat medium-to-light body. Somehow, the focus on the hops makes the amber ale character less prominent, as does the lightening of the malt base, so it does not feel quite like a weightier amber ale. kwik-lime (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Can at the Fountain and Ink in London. Really big hops for an amber, balanced with a little malt and some summer fruits. Long bitter finish. Really good beer. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 14, 2017
Appearance: clear medium amber with one finger of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and well-defined lacing. (5/5) Aroma: dank resin, white wine, citrus, pale and caramel malt, tropical fruit. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)
With Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops, this combines two of my favourite hops. On the other hand, the combination of dank sticky icky and white wine seems like a bit of a culture clash - or, at least, not the kind of parties I get invited to. Shut up! I get invited to parties! Iíll have you know, the last party I went to, we partied like it was 1999! ...because it was... My social graces - or lack thereof - aside, this might well be the best Amber Iíve ever had - because itís not really an Amber, itís a DIPA in all but name. Big bombastic fun, well into legendary status. (18/20)
