12oz can received as an extra from respected BA trader KRG. Date on bottom of can 7/8/2014.
Amber/ruby, clear elixir poured into SA perfect pint glass. Huge 2-finger head with remaining half inch of foam as the tasting progresses. Thick lacing from top to bottom.
Big caramel and sweet citrus up front, spice, earth and bready malt round out the complex aromas.
A real nice, smooth hop bitterness carries this brew with notes of citrus, sweet malt and caramel.
Medium body, smooth, alcohol hidden.
A real nice red ale. It was better when the first batches rolled off the line, with an accent on the hops and the malt taking a backseat. This one is much more balanced, which to this hop head, is not an improvement. Still solid and a nice representation of the style.

4.41/5 rDev +6.8%
Canned 7/8/14, poured into a pint
A- pours a deep amber color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a small ring around the glass, good clarity
S- Citrusy hop aromas with an emphasis on grapefruit zest, earthy & leafy, caramel malt & fresh sweet bread. Fresh hop aroma really sticks out
T- citrusy hop flavors with more grapefruit zest coming through, and some orange peel. Fresh leafy notes lead to sweet caramel maltiness with doughy beady sweetness, the finish is bone dry, but lingers of citrusy hop
M- medium body and carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth & velvety dry finish
O- this is an outstanding amber ale, the fresh citrusy hops are balanced tremendously with a sweet caramel malt backbone. If this were regularly available to me, it would be a staple in my rotation
