Pours a transparent copper with some red highlights. A three finger khaki colored head caps this beautiful brew, big lace is a bonus. The nose leads me to believe this is going to be a very balanced offering from Ballast Point. Sweet caramel malt blended evenly with floral hop aromas,very enticing for a Amber Ale. Good amount of hops greets the tongue fading into bread crust and back to a bitter hoppy finish. The subtlety of the caramel malt adds complexity while not competing to hard for the top spot,that award goes to the citrusy hops. This is so creamy and drinkable, my taste buds are telling me to sip slower and make this last, while my hand I can barely remove from my glass, this is an outstanding Amber Ale.

A - Deep ruby, rocky off white head. Solid lacing.
S - Medium intensity tones of nuts, caramel and grassy hops.
T - More of the same from the nose. Malt forward with a sweet toasty character finishing with an astringent grassy hop character, really not my thing personally but very true to style.
M - Refreshing and quaffable.
O - Amazing take on the style.
Serving type: on-tap
