Again, finally got my hands on one of these. Buddy of mine grabbed some at Gasparro's in MA. Thanks ABHatter.

Pours a demon-eyes red with a nice off-white oily head that did its best to stick around for a minute or so. Lacing was excellent throughout.

Smell is piney citrus hops with some distinct orange smells outside of the other citrus smells with a slight malt to it.

Taste is exquisite. Full on smack of delicious hops that gets washed out by tangy orange flavor that has a teeny-tiny malt character to it. I love the fact that from the first taste you expect a bitter hops but it just goes away with this great citrus, almost candy finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, great carbonation, alcohol is hidden perfectly.

This is great. I have been let down by a few other Troeg's offerings, but this one is tops. Best Amber i've ever had. I never realized that something with such a hop-forward flavor could finish so incredibly delicious and not bitter.

Troeg's is starting to live up to the hype a little in my book....

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appears nice and amber in hue slightly burnt orange with a light yellowish off white head.

The smell is strong of hop, nugget and cascades come to mind.

The taste is pretty good, a slight hop bite coupled with some light malts. A bit more hop heavy that its bottled counterpart, but also strangely smoother due to the cask. It was pretty interesting, lost alot of viscousity due to the cask and it seems to be missing something else. Overall, though its good in the cask, it may be better in the bottled format. Either way, this is a plus for someone new to hoppy ales and wants a smooth drinking experience.

This is a dangerous way to pack away NN and found myself drinking it alot faster. In my opinion, however, this brew is best served cold instead of high cellar/room temp.

was served a deep golden amber leaning towards a light copper pint with a film like white head with nice lacing after each sip
smell was big sweet pine along with a pretty good orange citrus note
taste was very orange citrus with some small pine notes going on in the back of all that orange, very big hop presence but its not that over powering there is malt hanging out somewhere
mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice velvety smoothness
drinkability is nice to sit down and sip but not something I'd have more than two or so in a sitting

Received as part of a great trade from jdoncbus. Thanks again!

Pours into a globe glass with beautiful hazy amber red color and fine white head. The head sticks around pretty well. A small amount of sediment is left in the bottle for later.

Aroma is slightly sweet but sensationally hoppy. Lots of citrus fruit and candy sweetness in the nose.

Flavor is totally IPA+ with great hop-forward flavor. Just enough sweetness from the malts to balance it out but it's still the hoppiest amber I've ever had. Like the aroma, there is a nice candied citrus fruit character and some bitter/tart grapefruit as well.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, certainly thinner than an imperial IPA but just as bitter. Carbonation is subtle and the alcohol is well hidden. Drinkability is fine as long as you can handle the hops.

Overall a great amber for the hophead. Big hops but not overkill and just the right amount of sweetness to get by.

Pours bright clear orange with chunky head that holds and leaves lots of lacing. Huge skunky, floral nose. Fresh cannabis hops with lots of tangerine, no astringent bite at the end. Candied malt backbone. Moderate mouthfeel. ABV is well hidden.

This is an accomplishment: an amber ale hopped like an IPA, yet never bitter.

There are beers rated "A" for their flavor profile alone and "A" beers that you just don't want to stop drinking; this is the latter.

Does even better on tap. So very sessionable. Another one, please!

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Clear coppery red, slight chill haze and lots of bubble trail carbonation. Head is fluffy eggshell of moderate height. Falls into a thin cap. Nice lacing at the top of the glass.

Aroma hits you strongly with pine resin and citrus. Nothing else gets through.

Taste tries to open with malts but gets completely overtaken by the complex hop characters. While hop-heavy it's not unbalanced, so the malt does support the hops nicely. And it's light honey, caramel notes do step up as the brew warms. Pleasant, citric bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium body with a resinous, oily feel due to the hops. Carbonation is fairly high and pleasant for the style.

Hopped to a ridiculous, wonderful, and uniquely American level. A very enjoyable brew. Wish we got them down here. Thanks PEBKAC for the chance.

7/27/10 - a modification of reviews, now that I've had more, I'm more willing to pass out a 5.0.

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer has a hazy caramely amber colored body with a creamy lumpy foam head of off-white with a slight yellow stain to it. The head last and last and sticks to the glass registering each sip. There is a sea of mirco-bubbles that work their way up to the surface.

S- The big bright hops aroma has a green pine pungency with bold earthy lemon qualities to it. This aroma is all hops but there is a great freshness and depth to them.

T- The big chewy taste of hops has qualities of pine and orange hard candy to them. There is a soft slightly sweet toasted malt flavor that comes through a bit more as the beer warms. There is a pleasant musty hint to the herbal hop finish that has a soft bitterness when cool. The bitterness comes through after the sip is finish and grows as the beer warms. The aftertaste is dandelion bitterness but there is a full hop brightness aswell that balances it nicely.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with no alcohol heat noticed.

D- This beer has big bold hops but they have a great brightness and depth to the flavors. This is a big beer but an easy sipper. Maybe a bit to easy to sip at 7.5%ABV.

a- great brownish amber, with a very nice clear quality to it! head reaches its apex at 3/8 inch and settles to 1/4 inch....but left some really cool lacing and had ropes of co2 flying towards the top. looks good.

s- up front grilled pine needles, along with freshly squeezed grapefruit, and orange. Soooo fresh.

t- night and clean, lighter-medium bodied, with tones of layers including bitter, tart, and fairly malty. finishes with a wide awake boiled hop bitterness but is not annoying and leaves on time for another sip.

m- light-medium, and finishes snappy, semi dry and wonderful.

d- I'd drink this any day of the week if if wasnt for the massive amount of flavor hops included in this package. I feel after a while it would burn me out on near flame out addition hops.

Bottle received courtesy of gdfan47. Thanks man!

Pours a transparent deep orange with a large frothy white head on top. Retained wonderfully. Great lacing/webbing. Smells awesome! Great crisp piney scent wafts up, mixed with some citrus, metal, and a little boozy quality.

Mouthfeel is firm and crisp as well. Not thin or watery in the least. Almost creamy mouthfeel as it goes down. Slightly warming brew. Bitter, bitter, bitter. Balance is more pronounced when first consumed, mild sweetenss comes through. But as the beer warms a bit, becomes skewed and more bitter. This hinders my drinkability a tad, as it burns me out. Yet, I can't wait to have another later! Well done. I'll be back to this for sure.

12oz. bottle.

A: Transparent red-orange hue with the head akin to the color of the foam on a mocha-latte. Head retention is minimal leaving tiny gaps.

S: Fresh apricot. Reminds me of the Mott's fruit packs from kindergarden--peach, pineapple, a touch of cherry, and like I previously stated, loads of apricot. Perfumey.

M: Light and easy.

T: Fruity at first with pineapple and apricot fading into one of the best malt characters I've come across in a highly hopped beer. The malt takes the edge off of the hops--which are slightly bitter, nothing tongue-biting--and add a vanilla touch to the end and lasting through the finish of this beer.

Comment: Thanks to MasterSki for the bottle. The Troegs Brothers have made one world-class beer and it is worth seeking out. Thank god I have a few of them.

A beautiful clear copper, off-white 1.5 inch head. left pretty good lacing.

smell is zesty, piney hops and some detectable malt.

taste: sweet malt, with nice bitter hops that balance it at the end.

mouthfeel is very silky smooth. medium bodied.

drinkability: fairly drinkable with it's its modest abv. A very nice change from the hopslam I was previously drinking.

this is based on a 12 oz bottle, although also had on tap recently (ahh, memories)...

pours a remarkably clear (i recall the previous being a bit cloudy, no longer bottle conditioned?) amber that shows a good 1.5 finger, off-white head. the head does fall back, but a thin layer remains on top. lacing is sticky, and hangs in plenty of spots. small bubbles occasionally creep to the top.

now this is high-alpha american hop aroma! citrus (grapefruit, and a big one), with a bit of pine here and a bit of sweetness from the malt base. reminds me of putting a bucket of warrior hops to my nose in my LHBS!

when i first tried this beer (not this release), i recall being amazed. i wasn't fully ushered into really high hopped beers, but this is the one that made it stick i think. it's awash in hop flavors and bitterness. citrus, pine, spicy and resinous hops abound... but a touch of caramel sweetness to offset just a bit. a drying, and somewhat almost slight tinge of numbness on the backend. lots going on here. lots.

the mouthfeel is nothing too nuts really. not super carbonated, so there's a bit of an oily coating of the tongue. really helps the flavors to remain on the palate. not stinging carbonation either, gentle. makes larger swigs and gulps very very easy.

too drinkable. at 7.5% abv, it's goes down like nothing. seriously. i really noticed that when i had it on tap, since they can always get you more. next thing i knew, i'd had 3 of them and said "really?" a dangerously delicious beer. hence the 22 oz bombers that started to come out are a tempting purchase... it is as they said in oak tree buyrite; the perfect size for this beer!

like plenty of the east-coasters, this is a damn good one and i think plenty of others would like it. is it up to all the hype? i don't give a damn. i likes it, so i drinks it.

Pours a clear copper color with a high, off-white head that dissipates but leaves a lot of thick lacing. The smell is cedar, juniper, clean minerals, and citrus. The taste starts off somewhat savory, moving into fruity notes, then goes into some powerful bitterness. It's highly carbonated and fairly viscous. A fine beer, but one or two of these is plenty.

Purchased from Root Cellar in Cincinnati, OH

A: Pours a medium amber to dark orange with a ½ inch amber head. Spider like lacing at the top of the glass on initial pour that continues down the glass after completion.

S: Large orange, grapefruit and citrus colors on the nose, big hop presence.

M/T: Light to medium body on the tongue. Big bitter hop and citrus punch, followed by a "piny" flavor on the tongue after swallow. Hops are really felt on the after taste.

D: Big flavor for an amber, this beer is not delicate. However, this being an amber beer, it really balances out the "hop bomb" factor, making it very drinkable and pretty session able. By far, one of my favorite beers of the season.

Not being well-versed in the style I was fortunate enough to have a buddy suggest this beer to me...otherwise I may not have taken the opportunity to enjoy such a fine ale.
This bottled beer was poured into an American Pint glass for evaluation.

Appearance - A darker shade of amber with a nice, white head. Although the head leaves quickly, there is some nice lacing throughout.

Smell - Yum! Sweet grapefruit. Lots of sweet grapefruit! I can't wait to try it...

Taste - There are definitely 4 types of hops in this ale. Wow, I need another sip. Yep, hopheads will love this pseudo-IPA labeled an Imperial Amber. Great balance with the three varieties of malt.

Mouthfeel - Silky smooth even with the oiliness of all those hops.

Drinkability - High! This just might challenge SN's Bigfoot for space in the fridge! And that's saying a lot.

Bottle from Hyde Park Wine.

Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration.

Very good brew.

A seethru amber red with two-finger white head that dies quickly with minimal lace. An intense hop smell, and I'm not quite good with differentiating between certain kinds of hops, but is the kind of hop smell that is citrusy, piney, floral and soapy. Plus a little spice in the smell and hints of sweet malt. The taste, like the smell, is almost all hops with citric fruit and grapefruit. Some caramel and other sweet and bread malts are minimal but in there to keep a balance (bread, cake or gum...sugary stuff). so the beer maintains its dryness but is also a little syrupy yet also a little creamy. Finishes dry, remaining constant w/ the beer's feel. I look forward to this beer's release every year.

A- Lighter side of amber, a pretty vibrant orange. Head is white, with a whole lot of lacing.
S - Ever bought a bag of hop pellets and stuck your nose in it? Pretty much that, with a tad of sweetness. Awesome.
T - Hops. Citrusy, some pine, just tons of grapefruit. Bitterness is there too, and blends perfectly with the hop flavor. I'm not getting much malty flavor, and not too much sweetness. I wouldn't call this "balanced" per se, and don't really care.
M- Very oily. In a good way.
D - Not too shabby. Hard to follow with anything else, anyway, as your mouth is now coated with hop oils.

This is an excessive, over-the-top, obsessive love letter to hops in a bottle. Very, very good. Mine happened to have been bottled 3 days ago, so I don't know how it holds up with some time, but fresh, this is it for hop lovers.

Presentation: Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a standard pint glass. Label depicts a hand squeezing a large hop cone. Hard to read ink on the label looks like this was bottled on 01/19/09.

Appearance: Pours with 1 finger of nearly white head. This settles slowly to a thin coating with several island of foam, leaving behind complete lacing. The beer itself is a nice deep amber and perfectly clear. No sediment in the bottle.

Smell: Very strong aroma, wafts up I am sitting here at my desk. Sweet, pungent grapefruit. Hands down, the best pure hop aroma I have ever come across.

Taste: Strong and spicy grapefruit hops upfront blend seamlessly into bitter flavoring hops. Lower sweetness in the taste than anticipated by the smell.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Body is great. Thick, leaving a nice coating in the mouth.

Drinkability: Yum. A great mix of the various iterations of the hop flavor. Reminds me of spring and makes me anxious for its arrival.

Going to school a half hour away, I definitely was spoiled by my proximity to Troegs...with wide availability all over the area, and being able to ride up with a few of my fraternity brothers to refill our growlers, yeah, those were the days.

A: Orange caramel body, languid carbonation. Frothy off white head of about a finger and a half segues into picturesque, classic lacing, later on.

S: Highly aromatic, a wickedly floral brew -- it really does fill the room with its perfume. Luscious, sultry, and most of all, seductive, hops -- dark ruby red grapefruit, pine sap, candy like orange, JuicyFruit gum, all of this and more at the first whiff. Such a sweetness dominates the back end, it's almost choking.

T: A tidal wave of hops, tangy grapefruit, pine extract, an acidic lemon citrus touches down briefly. Butterscotch and baked bread coated in brown sugar make up the malty spine of this hop heavy beer. Leaves off in a wash of sour bitterness that begs you to have another sip to wash it it down, with another, and another...

M: Medium bodied, starts of creamy and ends a bit dry.

D: It has stopping power at 7.5 ABV, but it's so evilly good, you drink it quickly and just want another. This beer, plain and simple, is a temptress.

As a friend of mine pointed out, it seems sweeter than last years. However, this may be in part due to it being a bottled, rather than a fresh, sample -- a conundrum we plan to remedy excitedly soon.

At first take, this strikes me as a very juicy, sweet, and citrusy IPA, but alas this is an imperial amber by label. This is really more of a nouvelle IPA, but what's in a name anyway. The beer pours a clear, slightly orangy red and copper color with a modest foamy and creamy head that doesn't retain all that well, and laces just a tad. The nose is very pungent and wonderful. This is a giant orange burst, piney notes, grapefruity tartness, with just an overlay of biting florals throughout. There might be a bit of malty breadiness underneath.

The taste will not disappoint. The only downside I detected was when the beer was a touch too cold and some metallic notes emerged. They disappeared quickly enough when the beer settled into its natural temperature range. This is a sweet, nouvelle IPA with juicy, oily, and estery hops with lots of orange and floral bursts; there are plenty of citrusy acerbicness to the hops. There are some slight caramel malts underneath, and they are sweet, so the whole just wonderfully complements each of the constituent components. This is a medium bodied beer with a 7.5% ABV that is well hidden. You won't know the strength of the beer otherwise. The finish is sweet, the aftertaste quite mild and refreshing, more than biting and lasting. There is a touch of drying nuttiness in the finish. This beer has few flaws and is a great red IPA, if there is such a thing, but absent that I will accept the imperial IPA label as aptly suitable. L'Chaim.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a tawny copper-orange color with just a slight haze. The head is fairly large, dense, and frothy, with an off-white tint. Retention is very nice, and there's plenty of lacing left on the glass.

S: Wow, what an aroma. Some toasted malts are available, but they're dominated by the extremely fragrant hops. Mostly citric, with an orange rind character. Definitely also some strong floral notes. Some more subdued herbal hints as well.

T: This is a hoppy and bitter beer for sure, but it's not even close to being a one-dimensional hop bomb. There's a fairly solid dose of toasted malt flavor that gamely contends with the massive load of hops. Also a bit of bready yeast at times. Citric and floral flavors dominate. Again, I detect orange rind and a strong floral bitterness. As the bottle says, 93 IBUs, so there's certainly an aggressive bitterness, but it never becomes too much to handle.

M: Medium to somewhat full-bodied with average carbonation. A resiny mouthfeel that leads to a very dry finish.

D: I'm really impressed with this beer. I was slightly skeptical given the incredible hype it receives here, but it is definitely warranted. A memorable, wonderful brew from Troegs.

Nugget+Warrior+Tomahawk Hops, ~93 IBUs. Being a fan of hops, I had to try this one out.

Poured it into a flared pint glass. The color and clarity of this beer are striking. A nice dark amber/organey color with generous amounts of head (though not quite 2 fingers) that didn't hang around all that long and receded to a nice thin film. I got lacing throughout the entire drink.

The nose is dominated by hops, its a very floral/cirtusy aroma that is offset slightly by some malt in the background.

This beer's taste is nearly identical to its smell. A nice kick of hops right up front, but its not overwhelming (93 IBUs). This beer is extremely well balanced especially given its higher alcohol content (7.5%)

The carbonation is great on this beer. Theres no "sting" anywhere to be found, and the post-hop bitterness is not overwhelming at all but rather a slight lingering reminder of the well balanced trifecta of hops.

Drinkability is definitely here. If you're a hop fan, you'll love this beer. I could put back a few of these in a night with no problem. Again its extremely well balanced and goes down very smooth. Great beer that I'll try again for sure.

From notes. On cask at the Blind Tiger in NYC> Hazy copper, minimal head fades fast to thin film and partial ring, no significant lacing. SMELL is soft, earthy, slightly floral hop aromas. Faint, however. Hard to find a nose on this one. TASTE is very smooth and balanced. Hop flavor is richly floral, backed well by malt that never quite gets sweet, and only ever so vaguely bitter. Very clean finish. FEELS lightly carbonated, pleasant soft texture, med/light body. Clean finish. DRINKS smooth and easy, but overall didn't dazzle me at all. Maybe being on cask had something to do with it? Or maybe my bias toward aggressive west coast IPA's had something to do with my ambivalence toward this one? I'll try her again, given the chance.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Frothy head covering a crystal clear amber beverage. Very low carbonation. Lacing is good and so is head retention.

Smell: I'm sitting about two feet away and I can still detect the hoppy aroma. Smells strongly of hops (Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk) and maybe a little honey. Hops take over.

Taste: Hop juice. It doesn't make you pucker up like some hoppy brews, in fact the hops play off each other well. Not much else in terms of flavor though. A bit of sweetness and citrus/grapefruit from the hops. Good but not mind blowing.

Mouthfeel: Even though the hops steal the show, its the sweetnesss that lingers on the tongue. Smooth feel and a good selection of hops.

Drinkability: Higher alcohol, but I could go for a while with this beer. For a hoppy beer, I may look in another direction, but I would have no problem recomending this or buying more. A good go-to-beer.
