Delicious... Starts like an amber, finishes like a lighter IPA.

16 oz. can obtained on trade from Dr. N. Arres in the SoCal, unknown brewing/canning date; poured into my The Bruery/Urge Gastropub "Rue the Day" full bottom snifter; drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - amber-brown coloration; high clarity (can both read and see through); initial eggshell white head heady resolves into a 1/4 finger lacing; mixed size carbonation with lacking; moderate alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - moderate passionfruit, gooseberry, white grape, peach, grapefruit and dank; mild bready/biscuity character; moderate alcohol; no diacetyl, no DMS

T: 16/20 - moderate hop bitterness up front that is followed by fruity and vinous charzter; in the middle of the palate, the flavor profile continues with citrus/grapefruit and dank; on the back end, there is a slight bready sweetness but finishes classic WC IPA dry; some warming alcohols linger

M: 4/5 - moderate body; slick, palate-filling hop oils; moderate carbonation

O: 8/10 - solid amber ale that I'd put up there with Troegs Nugget Nectar; moderate fruity and vinous aroma with some balancing malt and alcohol; however, I expected more with a hop profile of Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic and Simcoe but still hits hard; recommended

TOTAL - 41/50

For my 300th beer rating I thought I'd give this one a shot.

Pours an orangeish-almost-copper colour. More so like a dark IPA than that of an amber ale..

Big hop aroma on the nose with lots of fruit shining through. Very nice. More fruity than piney. Same goes through in the taste. Not overly bitter. Great balance with the malts makes this real easy drinking. Light carbonation with a small head with little retention throughout. Feels like an IPA more than an amber to me.

Overall I'd definitely pick up another pack of this to enjoy on a nice cool day outside.

Stickiest of the icky.
