Reddish amber in color. A millimeter thick bit of foam rests on top. Brussels lacing on the glass. Aroma is of amber malt and I get a good dose of the pine like hops. Good balance of bitterness with the pine like hops and the amber malt. The hops tend to dominate. Mouth is prickling my tongue with the bitterness.

Amber red color with a thick off-white head with long retention and leaving laces.
Citrusy aroma with peppery yeast, slightly toasted and biscuit malt notes.
Similar to smell, taste of tangerines and grapefruit with notes of caramel and licorice. Hints of tea bag and a very distant sourness. Dry and bitter aftertaste, but on the mild side, far from aggressive.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Flavorful red ale, very sessionable and more assertive than complex. It would be much nicer if they beef up both malt and hops.

It being Christmas Eve, I had to open this red ale and I must have been good because it is a pleasant surprise.

First impression, sleigh full of original citrusy, tangerine rind aroma. Bursting with originality and gusto, true to Rogue's mission. It may be one of their most original and best ales.

Reviews all over the map. I have to disagree about this being mainstream or middle of the road red ale, I found it powerful and original, even tho a bit sweet. Not a summer beer.

A - Looks great in a chalice. Very orangey ruby color, hazed, translucent, leaving lots of lace.

S - The most bursting citrus nose I have found. Then floral hops and not much malts. There's also yeast and biscuit. The power must be the dry-hopping.

T - Follows the smell, a mix of tangerine & grapefruit rinds, and even more hop flavor with a touch of residual bitterness. The sweet malt flavors are powerfully there, in a kind of hard candy/ rock candy way, and in the end the ride is balanced and well-finished at first. But as it warms, I grow tired of its candy nature.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, lots of oily resins. Good mouth feel. Very tingly and original, but again as it warms its sweetness is a bit much.

D - 5.1%, could have more than one, but I find the citrus flavors too intense and too candy like, even with the bitter finish. Otherwise, tho completely different, it's with Nugget Nectar, as a solid Red Ale that you really must try. Original, and intense red. Not for everyone.

12oz bottle. Pours a translucent rust color with virtually no head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is malty with some caramel and spicy hop notes. The taste is the caramel malts upfront followed by some bread and toffee. Spicy and floral hops towards the finish with more caramel at the end. A bit sweet but with a decent amount of hop bite. Even though it's dry hopped, this one tastes more malt forward to me. Medium bodied with a slightly thin mouthfeel. I was expecting more hop flavor out of this one but it's still a decent Red Ale. Overall, I'd grab it again but I wouldn't go out of my way to do so.
