Default Hoppy American Amber Suggestion???

Soon I'll be racking to secondary and am getting geared up for filling the primary again. Does anyone have a suggestion for a hoppy amber? I am a fan of North Coast's Red Seal Ale, generally considered an American Amber, yes? I am new to brewing, so please feel free to expand my shopping horizons beyond Northern Brewer or Midwest!

Check the recipe database.

One that I'd recommend as good APA would be:

There's an extract version in that thread. Good luck with whatever you choose to brew.

I agree. This is a really good beer.

All grain

Extract with grains

Jamil discusses the style and the recipe in the American Amber Ale "Jamil Show" episode.

If you don't already have it, his book, Brewing Classic Styles is a really strong, proven book of recipes. Everything I've made out of it has been a good beer.

Bobby_M's Magirocillent (sp?) Amber is pretty tasty. Lots of hop aroma but not super bitter.

Which was loosely based on the West Coast Blaster only not as high OG/ABV. I still wanted it to be a session beer. Magnarrillocent (magnum, amarillo, centennial) In retrospect I was really grasping for a clever name there.

Magmarrillocent?

Must be Friday, because this made me think of a hundred-armed lava ape.
