On tap at Prime 16 yesterday, poured a nice clear amber color with a decent head that left some lacing. Sweet aroma indicated a good amount of malts in this one, but there was some hops, as well. Nice balance in the flavor of sweet caramel malts. Back end had a nice hop kick to it, very leafy and earthy. Lighter than expected body and a good mouthfeel. Overall a solid Amber ale.

On tap at Firefly Hollow. Pours a brownish amber color with an inch of thick khaki head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is a nice fruity mix of grapefruit, melon and spicy hops. A bit dank. The taste is less fruity and more of the dank and spicy hops. Caramel malts and slightly earthy. Finishes with some grapefruit bitterness and spicy hops. Sweet. Medium bodied. Overall, solid hoppy Amber I'd grab again for sure.

Draught @ Brewery: This one poured a clear amber color. It had a bit of an off-white head that left some lacing. It has a lighter nose. Some malts, as well as floral and piney hops. The taste is good. Balanced malts with faint pine and earthy hops. A hint of spice. Nice.
