1.1/5 rDev -68.7%
a - Pours a very light orange/golden color with moderate carbonation and small head with little retention. The lightest color of this style I've ever seen.
s - Faint malt aroma. Not much hops in the nose.
t - Some mild malt flavor but nothing stands out. There is a hint of hops at the beginning. Nothing lingers after.
m - Watery mouthfeel.
d - This is one of the worst examples of amber I've ever drank. The flavor is lacking all around and the mouthfeel super thin.
I'm really glad I only ordered a half-pint of this. Never again.

Had a pint at the draughthouse.
A - Light orange. With a very small head that disappeared almost at once. Not sure why they call this an amber.
S - faintly malty with some caramel, minimal hop aroma
T - Best way to describe it is watery. Very little carbonation and a slight malt sweetness.
M - Light and crisp.
D - It goes down easily because there isn't much body, but the lack of complexity or much flavor doesn't really make we want another.
Thirsty Planet is a new brewer, so maybe this will improve with time.

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.
