This beer is confusingly called an amber, so I rated it as such. It seems much more like a pale ale to me and would have fared better if I was thinking of it in that way, so I kind of tried to rate it somewhere in between. Anyway, as either style it leaves something to be desired.
It is a light yellow beer with large rocky head and sticky lacing that offers up softly resinous, perfumey hop aroma. The taste is basically watered down red hook ipa with a strange juicy-fruit gum character. Mouthfeel would be nice for a pale. Its light, soft, and kind of fuzzy, but is all wrong for an amber. There is really nothing "amber" about this beer at all. WTF.
