A- pours a clean, translucent amber. Ruby and orange accents. Light khaki head of about a finger that provides nice lacing. A fine looking amber here.

S- An intense blend of citrus hops and sweet caramel. Orange and pineapple matches the sweetness well.

T- Flavor is maybe a little more subdued than the nose, but solid nonetheless. An abundance of hop character and an aggressive charred caramel and toasted bread base to balance it out.

M- Mid body. Almost seems somewhat sessionable with its easy drinkability. Sharp, crisp finish.

O- This is the second beer I have had from this brewery, and like the last one, Rainmaker flat out brings it! An aggressively hopped amber that is one of the better ones on the market. Would pair really well with a chargrilled burger topped with caramelized onions.

$6.99 for a 22oz bomber
