Ambergeddon pours a slightly chill hazed caramel into my pint glass. A 1 finger dense craggy head formed on the pour that stuck around awhile. As the head slowly fades it becomes thick and creamy. Leaves strong lacing.

Aroma begins with a mild caramel background but big juicy citric hops kick any malt that's there out of the way quickly. The hop combination is pretty unique. There's the usual grapefruit along with a squeeze of lemon but those two are more in the background. The main citric hop character is lime. Mild pine needles waft through the air as well.

Grapefruit hops come through up front. There's always that little hint of caramel maltiness in the background but hops rule the roost. The grapefruit in the flavor is sweetened and juicy along with some lip puckering qualities. Couple sprinklings of lemon juice on top of pine needles on the swallow. Very enjoyable.

Medium body with a smooth and lush mouthfeel. Finishes with a solid dryness that helps accentuate the hops. Solid bitterness.

Easy drinking enjoyable beer. The dryness leaves you wanting another drink right after the last.

My first beer from Ale Asylum and hopefully not my last. I'm a sucker for hoppy reds and this hits the nail on the head. Excellent.

Thanks to flyingbison for this brew.

Pours a hazy medium/deep amber with a foamy off-white head. The foam settles after a minute and leaves a nice layer of foam still covering the top of the brew and a little bit of wispy lacing on the walls of the glass.

Wonderful caramel malt note. Lots of smooth and creamy caramel and a hint of biscuity bread. Hops impart a nice hint of fruit and a touch of citrus. Hint of crushed grain and a touch of light toffee.

Smooth malty body with a nice medium sweetness. Slightly prickly tiny carbonation brings a great caramel malt flavor. Hops come through nicely with notes of grapefruit, orange and a touch of berry. Hint of light pine on the aftertaste with a touch of stickiness. Hops are well balanced by the tasty malt here, making this brew very drinkable.

A - Pours a clean orange apricot colored body. A cyclone of bubbles is rising from the bottom to the surface. A half inch beige head sits atop and consists of tight bubbles. Superb retention.

S - Big hop nose here with some orange and a bit of grapefruit. Light caramel malt attempts to balance it out. Light pine in the back.

T - Starts big and sweet with some caramel, strawberry, and orange. Pine, orange and grapefruit bitterness all play a part here, but aren't overwhelmingly bitter at all.

M - Medium bodied, but a bit fuller than that. Smooth and almost creamy. Top notch for an Amber.

D - This beer needs more attention. Very, very nice amber that is super easy to drink. Too bad I only bought a six pack when I was in Madison.
