4.06/5 rDev +6.8%
A: Dark amber body with a chunky cream-coloured head.
S: Strong orange rind and fudge combination.
T: Has the marmalade and the fudge but the sweetness is masked by a rindy bitterness, making it fairly dry. Malt character is undetectable.
M: Soft but lively effervescence.
O: It's no Sculpin but an enjoyable beer none the less.

Dark amber brown with a towering beige head.
Aroma: fairly equal mix of hops and malts.
Flavor follows although the balance is a bit maltier.sweet light and medium roast malts with a touch of darker (chocolate?) malts.
O remarkable flavor for style. Recommended.

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.
