Color of this beer is beautiful. Amber with gold highlights.extremely clear for an ale. Unique. Nose is very malty but with some zesty american hops and caramel fragrance.
This has got to be one of the most balanced american ipas out there. Very malty with caramel and bready notes in the start. Piney fruity hops in the middle. Great mouthfeel. Juicy. Pairs well with almost any food with flavor. This beer is up there as one of the best amber ipa's I've had.

Finally got to try this beer! Purchased earlier today in Buffalo. Pours a bright amber-orange colour with thick white head. Nice lacing down the glass with good head retention. Smells of strong citrus hops and resiny pine, yet still have a huge malt base. Flavour is quite bitter. Is this really an amber ale? Probably an IPA, but whatever. This is freaking delicious. Great medium bodied mouthfeel. I wish I bought more of this when I had the chance.
