Wavemaker Amber Ale

Odessa, Florida's Big Storm Brewing recently sent a few canned beers over to us in Miami. Today I'm checking out Wavemaker Amber Ale. The can depicts the type of wave that even professional surfers avoid, the type that form when asshole hurricanes get too close to Florida's shores! Of course, that's where the Big Storm name comes from. Florida's Craft Beer Forecast: 5.8% alcohol. 38 IBU.

Big caramel with a spicy, hoppy note. Caramel and toffee flavors start, light spiciness. Enough hoppy bitterness counters that initial sweetness. But what really gets me is some weird yeasty strange type of flavor at the finish. Kind of boring for a hurricane themed beer. Also, just so-so. Needs work.
