Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

Pour a nice golden semi-dark amber, somewhat clear with a beautiful long lasting creamy white head.
Not a lot going on in terms of bouquet. Did pick up some malt and a medium amount of hoppieness.
Taste was soft and round, more hops than I anticipated. BUT the best thing about this one, was the aftertaste.
It lasted and lasted and lasted forever. Seemed like 5 or 10 minutes after tasting this one, the taste remained and it was very nice!

Muddy brown in color with a reddish hue and murky. Poured with a thick beige foam with nice staying power. The foam slowly reduces to a healthy cap that leaves sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Fresh earthy hop aromaa up front. Resinous pine with ripe citrus grapefuit hop aromas in tow. Intense caramel malt backbone with hints of dark fruit and chocolate malt in the background. Medium bodied with pleasant carbonation. Slightly pungent citrus hop flavors up front that intensifies through the middle before slowly transitioning to a pine hops to the end. Sweet caramal and bready backbone throughout with hints of chocolate malt toward the end. Finishes with a biscuity and pine hop bitterness. Complex flavors and aromas highlight this exceptional beer.
