look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass
A - Darker reddish color with copper and brown tones. Light head about one finger high with a slight amount of lacing while consuming.
S - Malt with some roasted tones, a touch of hops and sweetness also attempt to jump out.
T - Roasted malt right up front with touches of caramel, eventually the hop profile tries to slice through with a dash of assorted fruit. Pretty dry finish afterwards with some slight lingering flavors.
M - Bubbly! Plenty of carbonation, but still pretty smooth with medium body.
D - Easy to drink and definitely quaffable at 5.5%.
This is pretty true to the style with a nice color and decent flavors. Definitely not my favorite amber ale, but a solid brew to keep in the fridge, especially if you're planning on having burgers or other bbq'd food. More good stuff from North Coast.

3.76/5 rDev -3.6%

Amber color with apparent carbonation with a full three fingers head with great retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Citrusy aroma with predominant notes of caramel and grapefruit.
Flavor of American yeast, tea leaves, oranges, grapefruit, mild spices, lemongrass, and caramel and slightly toasted malts. Becomes more lemony with time. And it feels bitterer than its 42 IBUs. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting but friendly bitterness.
Light body with low carbonation.
Interesting that it has a medium bitterness that does not goes away and both malt and hops are melted together. Though it felt a bit too thin, but this makes it very sessionable.
