This is the Thirsty Planet’s Amber that’s been wood aged and dry hopped. It looks a pale yellow-orange color with a lot of foam that lets off a big grassy hop aroma. Grassy hops dominate the flavor as well, in a way that I completely forgot about this being an amber originally. I don’t pick up a distinctive malty sweetness but the beer does have an exceptionally well-rounded finish. Simply wonderful. It’s like a completely different beer and one I would gladly welcome seeing again.

On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is pretty straight forward with a lot of caramel malt. The flavor is a mix of caramel and toffee malt. I also get some chocolate, earthy and grassy hops and some iced tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

growler courtesy of fthomasl, thanks dawg! Pours a lightly hazed amber color with a small tan head that leaves some spotty lace.

Nose is surprisingly nice, caramel and toffee with a few dallops of sugar. Malts are nice, bold and varied. Nice hop aroma too, bright and tropical.

Taste is pretty big, lots of hop flavor and tons of bitterness. Lingers on and on... Malts are no slouch either. Loads of sweet toffee and burnt toast. Not bad, but a little homebrewey. Not much depth and the flavors dont meld together all that well. Its almost a bit too much going on here, the beer could be simplified dramatically.
