3.8/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours an attractive amber hew with an exceptionally ample head. The retention is nicely distributed along the glass.
S: The name matches the nose. A robust hop aroma engulfs the nostrils with a citrusy, floral complexion. Very similar to an IPA.
T: Pursuit of hoppiness describes it perfectly. There is an illusive amber ale flavor, but the hops generate a grapefruit like bitterness that masks the malt flavor that is expected in amber ales.
M: Outstanding carbonation dispenses the flavor appropriately throughout the palate. The hop bitterness from the flavor does not fully subside, but there is a relative smoothness due to the absence of the malts.
O: Much more of an IPA than an amber ale. If this was labeled as an IPA the ratings would definitely be different. There is a slight amber style, but the hops are the most significant factor in this brew.
Serving type: growler

Bottled on 9/26/13.
Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earth forward aromas and flavors.
