Appearance (4.5): Clear copper color with a one finger egg shell colored head. Looks great, although dark for the style

Smell (4): Dank tropical fruits, pine, lemongrass; A bit earthy

Taste (3.75): Pine dominates the palate with slight citrus undertones that carry onto the aftertaste with hints of biscuit malt. I also detect a candied sweetness underneath it all

Mouthfeel (3.75): Medium body; Sticky on the palate with slight bitterness--Could have used slightly more carbonation

Overall (3.9): Picked up the variety pack, and this was my first choice. This one definitely falls into the piney ipa category. Its tasty, but it was a little all over the place for me and the individual tastes didnt quite match each other. It is a good ipa, but not a great one. Looking forward to trying the rest of these beers in the variety pack

This IPA poured as a dark golden trending towards amber. And if you know Ambyr you know that ain't all bad. The head on it (the beer, not Ambyr) was firm and looked like dirty straw. This IPA has a good flowery smell that you expect from an IPA. The taste was very grassy - or maybe that was because i had just finished mowing the lawn. The bitterness stayed a bit too long for my taste so i marked this down on the feel and on taste.
