A classic West coast amber ale named after Brewmaster Bob’s second son. Deceiving, as the hop aroma leads you to believe your palate will be assaulted. But, only 13% of the hops are added in more than 13% of the boil time; yielding a beer intense in hop aroma and flavor, with only a faint bitterness and nice light chocolate and caramel malt backbone lingering.

Growler from Ale Yeah. Characteristic amber color and pretty nutty caramel and bread flavor make this a little more syrupy and full bodied but I definitely dig that aspect. Toasty grain aroma with some grassiness mixed in from the hops. Caramel sweetness and nutty almond flavors come pretty quick and strong upon first sip and the sweetness stays with you for a while. Getting a faint light cocoa flavor towards the end of the sip and on the back of the palate. A bit more entertaining than your average amber and definitely worth the time.

Draft at the source. Cloudy dark amber brown color, small neige head, solid lacing. Aroma of birnt toast and nutella. Taste is malty and nutty brown bread, toasted. Very creative for an amber.

On tap at Wrecking Bar. A bit heavy on the amber and bread character. Some citrus hops in the background.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain and caramel with only a hint of earthy hops. Flavor has a nice citrus note with a bit of flora that finishes with caramel and earthy grain.

Very good taste with a nice hop tingle, though the beer is weakened by its somewhat watery body.

Appearance: Deep amber-hued body with a slim, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Resiny, woodsy hops with some light citrus rind notes over malty accents of toast and caramel with a distant note of roast.

Taste: Toasted malts with an easy roastiness in the background and a sweetness of brown sugar and caramel. Resiny, woodsy, citrusy hops but they’re restrained, particularly the bitterness, which remains light. Malty finish with a final taste of toasted bread and still a fair amount of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Slackened hop bitterness with a nice round maltiness -- I liked it.
