Bottle dated: MAR2012 EIGHT. Poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a burnt, amber red color, cloudy, with about a finger worth of an off-white head. Very minimal lacing left behind as the head recedes.
S: Nose is bright with citrusy hops upfront, some mellowing sweet notes as well, then ends with a bit of pine. As it warms the sweeter notes are more prominent than the hops, but are very harmonious in balance.
T: Nice hop bitterness, but again balance is key. The malts are almost in tandem playing together with the hops.
M: Mouthfeel is very nice, sweet breadiness, and a bit astringent. Overall a very solid amber that drinks like APA.
Serving type: bottle

A nice extra in a recent trade. Poured from 12 oz can into tulip glass.
A: Ruby tinted brown with a generous 3 finger fluffy white head that left some nice chunky lacing.
S: Resiny hops, oranges, caramel.
T: A nice balance of citrus notes with bitterness from the hops. A bit of sweetness creeps in at the last minute.
M: Medium body with a good level of carbonation. Easy drinking brew.
O: This a nicely balanced red ale. Would be a nice one to have 6 or 12 on the boat for a nice day of fishing...
