Samuel Adams calls this a "red IPA" - listed here as an American Amber - I'd peg it more appropriately in the newly evolving imperial amber category. Maltier than an IPA, with a distinctive caramel malt character. Assertive hopping shows up in the middle and holds its ground through the finish. Slightly sweet toward the end, with some drying at the last instant.

Pours a big head into a snifter glass. Dark red with a obsidian background. Nice huge head, lacing and great retention. Alot of clarity.

Aroma is crystal malt pronounced, slightly sweet and toasty with some pine and slight citrus hop character. Not a lot of floral style hops. Wish I had more hop in the aroma.

Taste showcases the malt but has good hop character. It has a big malt backbone to back up a nice earthy hop bite with some sweetness to round out. Resiney pine flavor like simcoe. Almost reminds me of sierra christmas celebration.

Mouthfeel is medium easy drinking.

This beer feels like a typical west coast IPA but with some darker crystal style specialty malts. I think the malt mutes the hop character a bit. Gives it a very unique eclipsed sun kind of color. Not bad.
