BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Coastal Extreme Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States
newportstorm.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This first beer from Newport Storm continues to be one of its most popular. The goal was to create a flavorful ale where delicate malt and hop flavor were in perfect balance. To meet this goal, the brewing crew uses North American crystal malt for color and sweetness, and Munich Malt for body and mouthfeel. The perfect amount of spicy Tettenang hops are added for flavor and aroma which compliment the bittering properties of the Magnum hops to round out this session brew.

Pours a deep amber color.
Smell is a sweet blend of apple and caramel.
Taste is sweet light malt and some caramel. A hint of fruit and floral hops.

COASTAL EXTREME NEWPORT STORM HURRICANE AMBER 11/27/16

Another from the latest beer shipment. Even though this brewery is in a state nexdoor to mine, I can't recall seeing any of their products in my state.

a: Clear amber with a finger thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Mildly herbal/spice.

t; Follows the nose along with floral notes and a light hop bite. Dry to spicy finish.

m; Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o; A flavorful amber, better than the ratings average here suggests. Seems quite complex in various incarnations as it's consumed.

This beer has been around since I was in highschool- it's been a staple at every party and every bar I've ever been to in newport, hurrcane amber has become one of my go to "easy" beers, i've found it a great starter beer to get people into craft beers.
