Well, I certainly taste the increase in IBUs and ABV; poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass- pours a hazy mahogany color, a little muddy, with 1.5 fingers of beige head, huge swaths of lacing, good retention.
Smell is very hoppy- just a bunch of pine with a tint of floral. Thick, resiny nose.
Taste is pretty consistent with the smell- hard to get the sweet caramel through all of the pine hops. Some caramel and barley up front, followed VERY quickly by pine and floral hop flavors, then the bitterness, then a combination of the flavors and the bitterness to finish pretty long.
Mouthfeel is good- medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, lots of resin. This is very much a west coast take on the amber ale; lots of hops, not too much concern with bringing out the malt profile. It's good, but not my favorite amber ale.
