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.

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

Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep amber-gold body with a small-sized, near white head.

Smell: Boldly floral, resiny, grassy hops with fruity notes of ruby red grapefruit (plus pith), peach puree, papayas packed in syrup. You can find a bready, grainy, toasty malt base patiently waiting underneath the aromatic hop wafts.

Taste: Sweetish, bready malts firmly affixed to toasted grains. Light caramel hint. As with the aroma, it's grassy, floral, and resinous, with fruity tastes of grapefruit and papaya. Moderate bitterness. Some more of that initial toastiness tries to make its presence known, but it remains predominately hoppy and bitter until the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Pleasant hop-forward amber.
