Notes/Commercial Description:
With a fury of hop flavor and a hint of malt backbone, this west coast amber is part ale, part sensory eruption, and all American.

Picked up a sixer of this for the Packer/49er playoff game, wasn't a huge fan of it then or the outcome of that game, reviewing while watching the Super Bowl.

A-Significant chill haze, ruddy amber color with a thin finger of off-white head that quickly recedes to a skim.

S-Lots of hops (spicy, earthy, citrus, grass) upfront with some caramel, toasted graininess as well.

T-Hops hit you hard, like the aroma they are earthy and spicy with a lingering bitterness overwhelming the malt.

M-Medium bodied and carbonated with a lingering bitter finish.

O-Definitely a beer for the hophead, this one is too much for someone looking for a traditional amber ale. If the hops were toned down a bit this one has potential, just not balanced enough.

Pours a dense, frothy head that is resiny. Bright citrus hop aroma. Stunning red-amber color. Starts assertively hoppy with big notes of grapefruit, and pine in the backgroud. I could just smell this for days on end (much like AA's "Bedlam." Not overly bitter, though. Peaks in a nice hoppiness and medium bitterness, then the malt bursts through to melt with that pine sap hop in the finish.

Perfectly balanced is the best description for this. This is stunning. It is hoppy, yet so masterfully balanced. This is the bier that turned me on to hoppy biers. It has all the Hops you could ever want, skips the abrasive bitterness, and still manages to do Wisconsin proud by letting that malt pop in so well.
