This is my perfect amber. It is quite a hoppy beer, over the style guidelines for sure but man it is really a fantastic beer. Give it 1.5-2 weeks in the keg after carbonation and it will blow your mind!
I first brewed this February 14. If you have searched, like I have, for a hoppy amber and been disappointed, this is the recipe you've been looking for.
