Recipe courtesy J.B. Zorn: Featured in the Zymurgy magazine article "Homebrewing, One Spreadsheet at a Time."

This recipe was inspired by visits to West Seattle years ago while my wife and I were still long-distance dating. In true Northwest fashion, it takes a classic style (American amber ale) and bumps up the hop flavor and bitterness. You’ll notice it hits or exceeds the upper limits for BJCP vital statistics for American Amber Ale, landing somewhere between Amber and Red IPA.
