grabbed at the brewery about a week ago.

poured cold from the growler a dark mahogany brown with amber highlights to a dogfish head shaped pint glass with a two finger off white head with lace to the rim.

great big piny hops aroma, big, though pleasant, surprise for the style - hints of caramel and toffee in the wayback.

big hops forward up against a nice malty, caramel malt. it's not what you'd call balanced, but instead you're looking at two competing flavors simultaneously. very unusual, but in a good way. this one will appeal to hopheads as well as guys that lean toward a more traditional amber.

smooth, creamy, big bodied - bigger bodied than most ambers, big bitter forward, followed by milder bitter and slightly sweet.

drinkable - absolutely, especially at 5.8. (781 characters)

Pours a darker than normal amber, with little white head. Smells a little sweet and hoppy. Taste is sweet at the front, not much else and then a nice hop finish. The finish is hoppy, not too much but it's a nice bittering, a pleasant surprise for an amber. Mouthfeel is good, good amount of carb., and drinkability is pretty high. I normally don't like ambers, but I could definitely drink this one often. (405 characters)

An American amber ale newly available from Flat 12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis.

This amber has a slightly darker than average color with more of an auburn hue. It's pretty clear with a golden foam. Not a ton of lacing.

Smell is of sweet caramel malt, a little fruity and noticeably hoppy. The hops seem a bit more earthy and piney than citrus or floral types. The flavor is similar, with a sweet, malty opening followed by more complexity in the darker malt and then followed with the earthy hops. The finish is fairly dry with a good amount of hoppiness. I'd say it perhaps was dry-hopped a bit much.

Mouthfeel was good with moderate carbonation and medium body.

Drinkability was pretty good as it's pretty balanced, full of flavor and a bit complex. The finish was the only thing that took a touch away for me. (824 characters)
