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.

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.

A - lighter than other ambers in general, white head that fades quickly. nice carbonation.
S - light caramel, light hops, and slight tea notes
T - very light on taste, not bad, but very light for my preferences. very light caramel taste, the malts make it through the taste a bit and are refreshing
M - very light, crisp, a bit of silkiness in there as well.
D - very drinkable, and just the right amount of kick for the summer.

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.
