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.

A very dark amber beer; nearly brown, quite cloudy, with a big cap of off white head. Excellent retention and super creamy lacing.

Massive aroma, super sweet and tropical, with loads of juicy hops. Full of pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine and...mango, perhaps? Wow. Extremely fresh and vivid (bottled a mere 12 days prior to review).

Just phenomenal tasting; lightly sweet, moderately bitter, with a touch of maltiness lingering underneath a tremendously detailed and tasty hop profile. All kinds of fruit in here, led by strong pineapple flavors, followed by tangerine, lemon, mango, orange, grapefruit.

Medium finish with some bitterness and slowly fading memories of one of the best tasting hoppy beers I can remember. Creamy, with medium carbonation and body, and a very nice, smooth and somewhat coating mouthfeel.

What a pleasure. So good. I want to remember this one the way I had this bottle, so awesomely fresh, don't know if I'd get it again if it was much older. The best example of the style I've encountered, including Nugget Nectar.

Beer is a dark amber with a creamy, ivory head that lingers. Smell is fresh and yeasty with some sharp piney hoppy notes. Taste has a nice malt backbone and an assertive mixture of caramel and pine and hops. It's complex and very good. The beer is fairly heavily carbonated, which makes it quite drinkable. The carbonation and the hops are a nice counterbalance to the dark malty/caramel stuff that's going on here. All in all, an excellent beer. This strikes me as a darker version of their Spring Peeper. Good stuff.
