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

22oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

A: 2 fingered white head, good retention and lacing. Appropriate amber bodied brew.

S: Lots of sweet candied malts upfront. Not much else to report.

T: Hops jump out in the tasting placing the malts in the backseat. Malts regain their footing as the tasting goes on and the beer warms. Less sweet than the smell indicated.

M: Medium light bodied brew that is well carbonated.

O: Pretty darn good American Amber.

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

A- pours a ruby amber with a finger of off white head. Solid retention.

S- candied malt aromas with west coast hop aromas of citrus peel and grapefruit.

T- deliciously balanced between caramel maltiness and citrusy grassy hops.

MF- slick mouthfeel with a light medium body. Average unobtrusive carbonation.

D- great drinkability.

Overall a balanced hop forward amber ale.
