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.

Enjoyed this a lot. It's an amber ale? Taste like a unique hoppy amber ale. Great beer. IPA more than anything.

16oz can, poured into a pink, no canning date

A- pours a golden orange color with some amber hue, small creamy white head retains long after the pour, leaving some sticky lace behind

S- big bready & malty aroma up front with hints of caramel, dough & yeast. Tropical fruity hop aromas with some spicy notes as well

T- hops are more prominent on the flavor with a big boost of tropical hop flavors of passionfruit, pineapple, mango & citrus. Big malty backbone gives doughy/bready caramel flavors and balances the hops quite nicely. Slightly sweet finish, with more tropical fruit on the linger

M- medium body with low-but creamy carbonation leads to a velvety mouthfeel and a smooth finish, highly drinkable

O- a very well balanced amber that packs loads of flavor, while remaining remarkable drinkable
