Darker doesn't always mean stronger. Amber beers usually carry a maltiness that you don't find with paler styles. The malt character can range from a light caramel to full on rich toffee and toast.
Our Hoppy Amber is verging on an IPA, but there is punchy malty body that pushed us to call it an Amber. It has a wonderful fruit, pine and spice balance that develops on the palate. It has a firm bitterness, but the caramel sweetness rounds it out to ensure your senses aren't overwhelmed.
