From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):

LOOK: Hazed reddish copper, great lacing

SMELL: Toasted bread, citrus rind, mint, hay, caramel, spice, figs, yeast

TASTE: Very smooth, creamy, toasted bread, hop bitterness, buckwheat honey, earthy, orange rind, nutmeg, evergreen, faint alcohol warmth, dried plums, peppery, grainy, semi-bitter finish

An all-around solid and very well-balanced American Red Ale with that PNW trademark lien to hops. Organic as well, which seems to be no longer a trend but perhaps a life-choice for some. Thankfully for them, they have beers like this. Great job on this one!

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark coppery amber with the appropriate red tint; fine one finger off-white head with great retention a lots of lacing. Aroma of biscuit, slightly bready malt, citrus and light pine hops, light spicy fruits. Flavor is nice biscuit and bready malt, light citrus and pine hops, citrus juice, grapefruit. Finishes with grapefruit and grassy hops. Medium bodied with decent carbonation in the mouth feel. A nicely balanced, fruit juicy red ale that is not that hop forward, but has a nice lingering citrus hop finish. Slightly sweet and a bit citrus forward, but well done.

Amber color from a can. Thick cap of foam that reduces down to a ring with some lacing.

The nose is on the lighter side and tends to be a bit more malty than hoppy. There is a nice little pine hop presence in there.

Malty, a little caramel, mild bitterness, pine needle, earthy and a little bit of toast and nuts. More of the pine in the finish.

Very soft and smooth feel. Drier finishing.

Good beer overall. Nice drinking red with a little boost in the hop department. I like that it's organic and convenient in a can.

Canned: hard to tell based on info on bottom of can

It's a toasted amber with a solid quilt of protein tan foam. Smells of tea, some resin hops, lots of crystal malts, not much else. Has that Special B smell. Has that Special B flavor, some tea, some caramel, a bunch of bitter with grassy hop character. Full bodied for the style with low carb and a wet finish. Nice amber if you ask me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a tightly bubbled ecru head; nice retention and lacing

Smell: Balanced aromatics with caramel/fruity/biscuity malts and robust piney hops

Taste: The malts appear first and are almost like what you would expect from an ESB, with fruit and biscuity flavors enhanced by a bit of caramel; by mid-palate, the piney hops assert themselves aggressively and linger in the finish along with the malts, in a very balanced fashion

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am not the biggest fan of ambers but this one is quite good in that it has an interesting malt bill and adequate hop balance to keep the hop heads happy

Thanks, kemoarps, for the opportunity

Big light off white head settles into a nice lacing above a clear reddish copper colored beer.

Lightly roasted caramel grain malts aroma with a light citrus hops also coming through.

Full light roasted caramel malts taste with some hops backbone gives this beer a nice blend of the two.

A dryish aftertaste that keeps a light roasted malts hanging around with this medium bodied beer.

Pretty good stuff, sort of like Sam Adams Boston Lager meets west coast hops with good success.

A: Reddish amber liquid with 1/4" cream coloured head that left a nice lacing.

S: Lemon, grass, and sweet malt.

T: Hazelnuts, lemon, flowers, caramel, toffee, grapefruit.

M: Medium viscosity with an average level of carbonation.

O: Somewhat acidic, but drinkable west-coast amber that likely uses cascade and centennial hops.

Served from a tallboy can into a nonic glass

A- Poured auburn red with frothy off-white head that left tons of splashy lace that coated pretty much the whole glass

S- Big biscuity malts, citrusy, piney, and earthy hops. Very aromatic

T-Big bready and biscuity malt backbone, explosion of citrusy, piney, and earthy hop character in the middle of the sip that leaves some nice lingering bitterness. Nice malt sweetness is balanced with an assertive bitterness on the finish.

M- Smooth and creamy. Medium body, pretty soft mouthfeel with some prickly carbonation. Very dry and pretty refreshing

O- A really awesome red ale. Big hop character, big malt character, balanced and bold in flavor.
