A: crystal clear; reddish amber in color; a finger light khaki head that receded to a wispy cap; sheets of lace;

S: dank pine with a hint of grapefruit in the background;

T: surprisingly malty considering the aroma; dank up front for a moment, then caramel with a hint of mocha in the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: very nice complexity, would have liked more of the hop character from the aroma to come through in the flavor;

Tap at Flynn's

Decent creamy 1 finger head fades at a med pace, decent lacing, dark hazy maroon color little mahogany light sneaking through.

Nose a sweet Amber malt, toasted slight caramel, little honey malt, into big spicy hops, didn't seem super hopped though, spicy chewy little earthy hop, some citrus orange rind, light floral fruity.

Taste brings mild sweet malt, more toasted amber malt and a little honey, touch candy malt and caramel like, into fruity flavors, fruity hops, little floral and rind, copper malt toasty, then big spicy chewy hops, not super bitter but fair, touch pine and earthy. Finish little sticky sweet, lingering amber copper toasted malt, more spicy hops and fruity flavors lingering.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall not bad, nothing special but a decent amber ale when you're in the mood for a well hopped amber.

Serving: On tap at Rubirosa Pizzeria in Manhattan
Served: 8 June 2016

This review fell through the cracks. As I remember it though, the beer was not a looker- much more of a turbid looking brown than a clean amber ale. The beer had a sweet, caramel malt nose and soft herbal hop notes. The beer was hoppier than I was expecting, though I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised given it was a "Pacific Northwest" beer. The flavor was relatively soft and muted, though this made for excellent pairing with the fantastic pizzas at the restaurant. The beer complimented the flavors in the sauce and crust without overwhelming the palate. Very drinkable, and overall a good amber ale.
