4.11/5 rDev +1.5%
The beer pours a fairly creamy light tan head that lasts quite a while. The beer itself is a dark, cloudy red with hints of orange and brown. Leaves some lacing behind but not a lot and in clumps. The smell has a strong hop presence with an even stronger roasted and caramel malt nose. The caramel malts seem to dominate the smell and the hops compliment it rather than dominate. The taste is different from the smell. While the caramel and roast malt notes are still there, the hops tend to dominate the pallate. The mouthfeel is smooth and bubbly with a slightly dry finish. Overall, a fantastic beer and worth getting.

3.96/5 rDev -2.2%
Appearance - hazy brown, one finger of foam
Smell - outstanding hop aroma
Taste - flavor,forward with little to no bitter. Very different where it hits the taste buds but good.
Mouthfeel - good consistency
A nice hoppy amber. Strong on aroma but I prefer more bittering hops personally.

Thanks to Tauroe for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into an Upland pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy, brownish red, with a thick, dense, two-finger light tan head and low visible carbonation.
S: Citrus, resinous pine, some dankness and tropical fruit, and just a touch of sweet roasted malts.
T: Grapefruit, citrus rind, dank, and some biscuit malt - though the accompanying sweetness dies under the onslaught of hops- and some bready yeast flavor as well. Moderate hop bitterness in the hang but it fades fairly quickly.
M: Medium to heavy body for the style. Moderate alcohol presence and good carbonation sensation.
O: This was a pretty tasty, hoppy red ale. Not balanced…but very good. Recommended.
