They bill this as an Amber, but I found it to be more of a APA. Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bronze-gold coloring, with a tall, frothy, clingy white head. Nose of floral hops, light sugary sweetness, and a fruity backbone. Flavors are hop forward, with a citrus blend on a subtle cracker backbone. Light and crisp, with a subtle resin aftertaste. Crisp, smooth finish. Definitely more stylistic to an APA.

First look after pouring into a snifter is that of a moderately-mild ruby hue, in gist, a truly vibrant amber ale. Ambient malt aromas flood the nose. Flavor, though smooth in mouth appeal, if pretty faint. Overall this is a pretty decent Amber Ale but one that quite lacks some things in the flavor department.
