Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #38 (Mar 2010):
From the sticky sea foam lacing to the stunningly clear brownish-red hue, this beer is a treat to look at. Orangey minty hop aromas wrap around a tight package of caramel malti- ness, flaunted by the very smooth, lush and semi-creamy medium body. Heavy load of cara- mel and a bit of juiciness meets the sharp bite of hop bitterness to make for a very balanced beer. Some toasted breadiness pushes up against the lingering orange rind hop flavor, with some fruitiness in the middle. Ghost-like roasted tone in the semisweet, bitter finish.
We love us some old-school Red Ales, all hoppy and everything, with the malt to back it all up. Seriously good beer here.

New Mexico, to Tempe, to Orange County. I didn't realize that I had bought two bottles (one from two different stores) when I brought my $120 beer haul to California. Here's 12 ounces, and on to the beer:
Red...dark red colored. So dark that it looks crimson. A low head is formed on the head with just a few dots of lace sticking to the glass. The aroma at first has a touch of dry cardboard. Much of that clears up and underneath comes a pleasing hop aroma, pine, esters, passionfruit, and toasted sugar in small doses. Complex indeed. More hop forward than malt is the aroma, so there is some irony to taste a beer that's more malty than hoppy. Malty, fruity, toffee. Soft hop leaves and tea help diversify this red ale. Somewhat bitter like many IPA's, but sweeter. A bittersweet flavor lingers in its aftertaste of this medium bodied, low carbonated beer.
Yes, I like this one. Now I'm glad that I "accidently" bought a second bottle :-)
