First beer review for the new year and pours a hazy copper hue with a thick creamy three finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is fruity with aromas of nectarines,candied oranges,passionfruit and sherbet,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and has tastes of candied oranges,lemon sherbet,toffee,boiled candy,passionfruit and finished with a pine hop bitterness and overall its nice and drinkable but i think the one is enough for me cheers.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid citrus forward hop presence.

My first review didn't save properly for some mysterious reason, so here's the Cliff Notes version:
A: Nice look, brick/orange as expected, clear and clean.
S: Spicy malts, but it moves into the realm of wet dog.
T: Nice representation of the style. Dirty, spicy malt with a good deal of accompanying bitterness to round out. The malt bite is quite potent, and could use a more emphatic hop presence to balance.
M: Really just dirty all around. There's a bit of booze on the finish, and the malts just drown out any hop resin that might want to stick around.
O: Good, solid representation of the style. This would be a huge beer with a greater hop presence, but as currently constituted, it is a good example of the style and tasty.

Appearance: deep reddish brown
Aroma: weird funky smell reminded of a wet dish rag
Taste: starts malty and sweet then finishes dry with the hops lingering. got a touch of smokiness very faint though
Mouthfeel: full body nice carbonation
the aroma of the beer was not in the taste which was good. Not as hop forward as I like. The malt backbone really comes through in this beer.

Poured a 2.5" beige head of medium life. The body is a truely lovely deep amber red, especially held to the light. It smells mildly of malt. The taste has medium citrusy hops and a little dried fruit including fig. Medium long finish. I'd say it's a classy, quality, well-rounded red.

Big creamy 1.5 finger head that fades at a med pace with some nice lacing, slight hazy copper reddish orange color.
Nose light creamy toasty malts with some caramel and toffee, hint of esters I think, then light earthy grassy spicy hops.
Taste starts with a hint of booze, light toasty reddish malts with touch of caramel and toffee and juicy malt. Then earthy light spicy hops with decent bitterness. A hint of orange zest comes through with the hops and a slight candied orange peel. Light creamy feel on the finish with lingering bitterness and spicy earthy hops light chewy even fairly dry but light sticky.
Mouth is med to slightly bigger bodied, decent carb, just a hint of warming booze.
Overall not bad. Interesting malts and hops, pretty much what I expected. Nose had a slight possible off-flavor like yeast touch but barely if at all.

S: Toasted malt, grapefruit, some caramel.
L: Hazy red, off-white head that dissipates, some dusting.
T: Toasted malt with a very prominent grapefruit and orange rind and hoppy backbone. Medium high bitterness, fairly bold malt sweetness. Finishes with additional hoppiness and slightly sweet malt. Ends semi-dry.
M: Medium-full body, quite smooth, medium carbonation.
Not bad, quite bold for the style.
