Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Label says 05/20/14.

A- Pours a light brown (not amber) color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Very hoppy nose with piney elements and a brown sugary malt sweetness. Combined, it reminds me more of an American Barleywine or straight-up IPA.

T- Piney hops, toasty sweet malt and a noticeable alcohol presence. There are caramel notes from the malt and the bitterness has a considerable duration on the palate.

M- Oily from the hops with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- I don't know who they're kidding. This isn't a simple amber ale. This is either a red IPA or an American Strong Ale due to the high hop content and moderate-to-high alcohol. It's delicious but mislabeled.
