Poured from tap a dark copper color with a persistent white head. The nose was citrusy with light malts beneth. The taste starts with notes of caramel and a damn nice citrus hop bite. The hop bitterness dominates, since malt sweetness is fairly low in the end. As far as ambers go this is quite bitter; it tastes more like a pale. The finish was dry and refreshingly bitter. One of the hoppies ambers I’ve ever had. Even though the balance is a little off, I found this very refreshing and extremly drinkable. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Citrus, peppery hops, and caramel, sweet bread crust malt. Moderate bitterness. Maybe a tiny bit astringent? ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - OCT 12, 2015
This is a good amber ale easy to drink plenty of flavor not bitter on overly hoppy, would recommend. Sledutah (7752) - Utah, USA - AUG 20, 2011

Appearance: Clear amber with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing
Aroma: Floral and light caramel
Taste: Tropical fruit, caramel with some light bitter pine in the finish
Nice, crisp and clean.
Not sure why this one is gettin’ the beat down...nice hoppy amber with a frothy eggshell head that left spider-web lacing. Aroma is bright citrus and honey. Flavor isn’t aggressive but pleasant...and the mouthfeel is moderate and highly drinkable. No off-qualities. Really enjoyed this one.

Taster – Red Rocks Brewing Co. – Salt Lake City, UT – Nice amber ale with some decent uses of malt. The flavor was pretty right on. Felt light but it was very tasty. I would drink this all day if I could.
