Labeled as “Our happy, hoppy, amber ale,” this is a quintessential American amber, with a forward and pleasantly pronounced hop character and balanced but noticeable alcohol. It's immediately welcoming, leading with seductive notes of sticky hops, citrus oils, toasted nuts, caramel malt, toffee and a touch of pine resin. The full, round palate is simultanously bitter and rich, and the balance between the forward hop characteristics and sweet, malty core of the brew is impeccable. Notes of chocolate, dried red fruit, caramel and toasted grain unfold on the finish first, but are then countered by lingering final notes of grapefruit pith and pine. Lauren Buzzeo
