Another solid brew from Ballast Point. It pours a beautiful rich amber color with modest head. The beer has a sweet malt aroma with just a touch of citrus hops. The taste is similar to the aroma. There is a strong caramel malt presence with a hop bitterness that is reminiscent of bitter citrus. Overall, I cannot say this is the best Amber Ale I have had; but, it is certainly one I'd grab again.
