The rye lingers as this beer warms. Citrus hops, caramel is balanced with the citrus character. Very good imperial Amber Ale. Taste like an IPA, but lacking most characters in an IPA. This is a strong version of an Amber.

I got this one fresh. Only a week old.

Picked up a bomber at Total Wine back in mid-August for $9.49.

Beer poured a reddish brown with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is wonderful citrus hops and bready malts.

Taste is pretty well balanced. Caramel bread malts blend nicely with the citrus hops.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a pretty good brew. Definitely try it if you come across it.
