Had on tap at SeaTac airport's Africa Lounge. Served far too cold, so had to let it sit for awhile. Glad I did, because this one was pretty good. Appearance is very hazy copper. Looks more like an IPA. Smell is malty and sweet which contrasts nicely with the spicy mouthfeel. Overall pretty decent American amber.

Pours one finger of head on a hazy copper colored body.
The aroma is burnt fruit (apricot, plum and banana). Unique but good.
The taste is malty with mild lemon bitter, fruity but not that sweet.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
A great beer that remains unique among a growing category.
