The “Coast Daylight” and the other “Daylight” trains were streamlined passenger trains operated by the Southern Pacific Railroad.  Considered by many aficionados to be among the most beautiful trains ever created, we not-so-humbly believe that label applies to our Daylight Amber as well.
Don’t be fooled by Daylight Amber’s easy going name.  It is a bit more aggressive than the name implies.  Daylight Amber has the upfront bitterness of an IPA, but that bitterness fades into a malt body influenced by caramel and toasted flavors, which are more typical of an Amber Ale.  Too firmly hopped to be a pure Amber and too malty to be a considered an IPA, Daylight Amber represents the best of both worlds.
