Billed as Hopped Infused Amber, which was pulled through a giant filter filled with Centennial hops...
Appears a hazy amber with an orange hue. A small white cap quickly fades out into a tiny film.
Smell...where the hell are the hops? Devoid of the piney, citrus goodness that one would expect. A pale ale at best.
Taste is of caramel malt, grain, and mild hops.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, grainy, mildly sugary and even less hoppy.

Serving type: on-tap

Had a pint of this at the brewpub over the weekend. It was described by the brewer as "dry hopped with a 1/2 lb. of Centennial". The draft line was run through a homemade randalizer that sat on the bar, the green hops in full view.

It was a slightly hazed amber orange, with a slim cap of foam that kept itself in place. Some spotty lace appeared as the glass was drained.

Aroma was where the dry-hopping really shined. Earthy, herbal, citrus notes were pungent. Compared to a sample of the regular Aurora Amber, this blew it away.

Flavor was also much more dialed up with hops, firm bitterness with plenty of orange peel, grapefruit, and leafy herbal greens in the mix. The light body was conducive to sessioning, but it was mid-afternoon and I opted for something different next. Hope they make this a fixture at the bar, it was tasty and fun to try.
