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.

4.48/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Served: poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: 1 finger of dense creamy ivory-colored head rests atop a cloudy unfiltered auburn-red brew. The cloudiness holds toward the center of the glass and abundant rising carbonation shows throughout.

Scent: sweet caramel, toasted malt, and plenty of citrusy hops. A surprisingly bold, juicy hop aroma.

Taste: first sip slapped my tongue with its bitterness, but that reaction was brief; it disappeared after the second sip. A caramely maltiness envelopes the tongue with a light toastiness. Hops leave a sort of citrus tang and a spiced tingle in the mouth. I didn't find it overbearing and the balance was very tasty!

Finish: surprisingly clean considering the unfiltered graininess. Excellent flavor!

Overall: after the wake-up call on the first pull, I really enjoyed the good flavors and balance. A very good amber that I will stock in my fridge.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a nice amber-orange color, slight bit of haze and medium head that lingers.

Smell: Some malt with a bit of hop character (a little piney, a little danky). Nothing overwhelming but it is about what you'd expect from a hoppy amber beer. Could potentially use more aromatics from hops but probably wouldn't substantially improve the smell.

Taste: Very nice malt-forward taste I'm guessing from a decent amount of Munich malt. It is very well balanced with the hop bitterness toward the back of the tongue after a few seconds. Can't say anything particularly bad about the flavor: it's a great amber!

Mouthfeel: Smooth, although there may be a touch too much carbonation that definitely is noticeable on the palate.

Overall: I really like it. As far as ambers go, this is on the bitter side but definitely not either in a bad way or in an unbalanced way (for instance, a West coast amber). Highly recommended.
