Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark copper with khaki head. Good retention and abundant lacing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, citrus, not getting much malt for an amber ale. Flavor seems more balanced, mildly bitter, hoppy, citrus/juicy up front, fading into mild malt, nutty, and a bitter finish and aftertaste. Malts did seem to come out a little more as it warmed, but still underwhelming. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texturing, fairly refreshing especially with the low ABV. A good brew, but significantly hop forward to the point where most of the malt is washed out. TH28 (451) - - JUL 6, 2013
Appearance is clear deep amber with creamy off white foam cap. Aroma is hop forward, more pine and herbal. Taste is roasted, toasty malt and gives way to a clean hop bite. The malt character is especially light, lacking the deeper body and viscosity more common with the style. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is a well balance bitterness that leaves a dry feeling on the tongue. An easy drinking, sessionable amber with great aroma, but seems to be lacking richness in malt character hfmejias (1283) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2013

Draught @ BBF13. Pours clear darkish amber with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit with notes of caramel. Intense, hoppy flavour with sparse fruity notes. Bitter aftertaste. Decent. Staffan47 (909) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2013
Tydligen redan druckit...men när då? Aja. Klämmer en flarra på GH i väntan på tyngre rariteter. riktigt bra ale i lite engelsk stil. För 50kr är det ett fynd. När jag minst anar det smyger Hoffback fram och drar ner byxorna på mig. Spexigt, helt klart. Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2013

Bottle. Nice, hoppy grapefruit tast, much like an ipa. Kind of thin without much malt flavor. Typical Stone bitterness in the aftertaste. Hkrivera (153) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - DEC 25, 2013
Dark, malty flavor. Will tingle your tongue with spices and roasted hops. Pair it with spicy chicken wings.
