This is the Thirsty Planet’s Amber that’s been wood aged and dry hopped. It looks a pale yellow-orange color with a lot of foam that lets off a big grassy hop aroma. Grassy hops dominate the flavor as well, in a way that I completely forgot about this being an amber originally. I don’t pick up a distinctive malty sweetness but the beer does have an exceptionally well-rounded finish. Simply wonderful. It’s like a completely different beer and one I would gladly welcome seeing again.

Nice copper color, smooth drinking, decent head retention.

A - lighter than other ambers in general, white head that fades quickly. nice carbonation.

S - light caramel, light hops, and slight tea notes

T - very light on taste, not bad, but very light for my preferences. very light caramel taste, the malts make it through the taste a bit and are refreshing

M - very light, crisp, a bit of silkiness in there as well.

D - very drinkable, and just the right amount of kick for the summer.

Got this at Pluckers in Austin, served in a glass. Dark(ish) red color. Great balance of hops, malts, and spices. Smooth finish. Enjoyable beer - great with wings.
