Bottle poured into a tulip
A: Pours a hazy, golden caramel hue with about a finger of effervescent head that's just a shade darker than white.
S: Smells lightly sweet with caramel malt and carries bright citrus notes across the nose as well, not common for an amber. There's also something reminiscent of cotton candy, quite exciting.
T/M: Medium to high carbonation tingle the tongue and give way to pine and earthy hoppiness with a touch of that citrus as well. It doesn't taste nearly as sweet as it smells and is more like an IPA than an amber. More hop bitterness carries through the end but leaves just a little room for some malty sweetness and finishes with a floral outro.
For an amber, this is really off, although for a beer, this is incredible.
