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.

The nose is a blend of rich golden malts and big resiny, piney hops.
Pours amber with a slight haze under a persistent, finely bubbled, moussey 3" off-white foam cap that leaves big lace.
The palate starts with sweet malts, a hint of fruit and light caramel, followed up with a big resiny grapefruit rind hop bitterness that lingers far into the aftertaste.
The body and carbonation are medium.

From notes on 9/12/2013

Slight nutty aroma with little head, but a nice golden dark brown color. Some nutty flavor, but more hops come through. A easy drinking beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Fairly clear red/copper. Head dissipates quickly to a thin lacing.

S - Clean, crisp, citrusy. Hint of caramel. Hint of pine.

T - Initial taste when it hits the tongue is citrusy hops. When left to sit in mouth for a few seconds taste turns into a malty/piney flavor with a hint of caramel. Upon swallow, piney flavor really jumps out as well as some bitterness.

M - Lingering taste of pine. Somewhat of a thicker mouthfeel but finishes clean.

O - Overall a very good amber/red. Flavor lives up to what smell suggests. About the right amount of bitterness for flavor profile.
