I'm expecting a hoppy amber ale. Here goes:

A: Very lovely, actually. A light reddish-brown that allows a good amount of light to penetrate the beer. Very well carbonated and pours a huge head with a ton of lacing. The beer was bursting forth upon opening the bottle. 4.5/5.0

S: Grassy hops that give way to a light malt backbone. For an amber ale, this one is pretty hoppy. I was expecting a stronger malt presence, but it's still good. 3.75/5.00

T: Beer is far maltier than the nose indicates. Grassy hops consisting of lemon and mild grapefruit give way to a strong malt backbone, one comprised of amber and caramel malts. Very toasty and sweet. Overall very balanced between the malt and hops. 4/5

M: Can't complain. Very well carbonated and thick. 4.5/5.0

O: I enjoyed this beer a lot. Great taste that's complimented by a great balance of American hops and lightly-kilned malt.
