12 oz cn of 'Dammit Jim' (note proper spellling) poured into a large wine glass and 'Imported from Texas' kind of like my can of JR Ewing beer. Pour is a hazy copper amber with a half inch of light tan foam atop it all. Looks a bit muddled but is fairly clear in the light. Decent retention.

Aroma of muddled piney hops and a slight hint of ethanol. Bit of caramel and a touch of added spice. Expands a bit with warming to become moderately complex. Taste follows but offers more depth than expected. Caramel notes are there but not sweet and with a decent hop spice component. Still a bit muddled/old in a sense.

A light red in the malt delivery and with a steely presence. Mixed feelings on the aroma though likely an easy quaff if drinking from the can

12oz can poured. Starting temp 45+ degrees. Medium amber color. Smelled like hops and had very hoppy taste. I am not an IPA fan and don't like strong hoppy presence in other styles, either. Beyond the hops, the flavor had promise. Mouthfeel is fine. Not a bad beer overall, just not my style.

22 oz bomber is ridiculously over-carbonated, took 4 pours to get 2/3 of the beer in a duvel tulip. Even on the crack of the crown, I knew it was not going to be good - Im surprised the bottle didnt break.

Nose is a nice hoppy amber aroma with a little bit of fruit, nuttiness and toasted malt. Well-rounded and balanced.

Taste throws some nuttiness with toffee and hops. Nice, too bad it is waaay overcarbonated, even some swirling leaves it too bubbly. This could be a upper tier amber if they get things worked out on the CO2. Leans hoppy, which I like in this style and the malts taste fresh and grainy. Im impressed despite the carbo issues, there is some good stuff going on with the malt and hops here.

22 oz. bomber poured into nonic

L: amber orange brown; clear ... almost as clear as a German lager or English pale with definite red in it; HUGE head of off-white to tan foam that sticks at the top; the foam almost pours out of the bottle -- like a Belgian. do they bottle condition this thing? man, does it have a nice thick head. beautiful beer.

S: pine hops crashing into something that's taking just a bit of its edge off ... grain? a malt backbone? the hop smell is fresh but not green, not grassy ... it might be a big earthy note from the Fuggle hops? it's nice, and the combination of pine and this other note is like apricot or a sweet, juicy orange

T: huge hop bite squarely in the middle of the first swallow, BIG pine ... resiny pine sap; sweetens out just a bit on the back end but for 50 IBUs, this sucker is *bitter*. might be some toasted grain or enough malt for a hint of balance ... yes, as it warms up, there is a good toasted grain note. but ultimately, this beer is all hops.

F: solid all around, no complaints on weight or carbonation

O: a big, big hoppy brew contained in a modest 5.6% ABV package ... loads of taste with a big full feel. if somebody told me this was an 8 or 9% brew, I'd believe it, yet the beauty of the beer is it's NOT 8 or 9%. you can drink a bit more, enjoy a longer session, and i expect i will be doing just that with this one.

style note: this is an American pale ale bordering on the American IPA realm. i'm not sure what an American amber ale is supposed to be, but Damnit Jim! has EVERY aspect of a good American pale or IPA. yes, it's amber in color, but every English pale I've had is, too ...

Poured from as 12 oz. can into a pint glass. Reddish dark orange in color. Not much carbonation. Not much head and little lacing. Taste was malty and crisp. Not a bad beer but I think Skylight is their best offering.
