look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On-tap at The Bruery,

A: Pours a light amber to murky burnt orange with a moderate white head, some lace.

S: Quite fruity, with some crystal malt and grapefruit.

T: Malty at first, but never really takes over the beer. Crystal red malt flavour, biscuity. Hop character is prominent with a lot of grapefruit, light pine and melon.

M: Medium-bodied, good aftertaste, creamy at points.

O: A really good red ale, the hopping is up my alley as I enjoy Amarillo, enjoyed this beer while supporting a good cause.

Had this on tap at the Beer 4 Boobs night. It's basically Loakal Red, minus the oak, with some dryhopping.

A - Slight haze, coppery red, with a white head.

S - Pine, citrus, big grapefruit.

T - Not very malty. A lot of tangerine, some floral notes, then a bit of roast and malt in the finish.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Also some oily slickness (hop oils?).

O - A nice red ale, but nothing out of the ordinary save the dry hopping. I still prefer Red Rocket, but this is a nice "I just got off work" beer.

On-tap at the Bruery

A: The pour has the Bruery's typical haze and is an amber color with a small off-white head.

S: Nice citrus hops are noticeable right away. Plenty of pine hops and grapefruit peel, with just a bit of tangerine. There are plenty of toasted malts and bread with a light sweetness.

T: Perfume is the first thing that comes to mind when I taste this beer. Lots of grapefruit and floral hops to go along with all the pine. There is a moderate bitterness which is balanced by bread and toast with a bit of toffee. A slightly drying feel on the back end.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: The flavor wasn't quite as hoppy as I had expected, but the beer was still quite good overall.
