I made Jamil Z's American Amber from Brewing Classic Styles this time last year and did a 90 minute boil to experiment with melanoidin formations. It definately worked as the caramel and toasty flavors shined through the hops. So I decided to step it up this year to an Imperial Amber, inspired by his West Coast Blaster recipe. This actually has way more hops, higher ABV, a slightly different malt bill.

The finished product turned out great and I am quite pleased. The hops are present from start to finish with a nice citrusy nose that is well complimented by the malt. The hops definately own this beer but the malt bill doesn't go down without a fight. A very nice caramel, biscuity, and slightly roasty (amber malt) flavor. As always, the American Ale yeast is neutral and clean, imparting no flavors.

Very enjoyable and easily sessionable for hop heads. It has been pretty popular with the masses as well.
