Appearance- Surprised by the color considering it is advertised as an amber/red. It looks more like a pilsner.

Smell- Sweet malt is the first thing I notice but there is quite a bit of apricot.

Taste- Fairly well balanced. Walks the line of being too sweet but never falls off the cliff. Good mix of malt characteristics and some hops notes as well. Tastes more like a pale ale.

Mouthfeel- Feels like an IPA in that I get a resiny coating on my tongue after each sip.

Overall- it feels like a bit of false advertising to call this an amber/red but I would recommend it to someone in a minute. I'm pleasantly surprised.

Picked this up in Buffalo. Pours a clear, orange/golden colour with a decent amount of carbonation. Smells very hoppy and citrus like. Tastes more of tropical fruits mixed with a citrus hoppy finish. The 8.9% alcohol is well hidden on this and it makes for a very nice mouthfeel. This brewery keeps pumping out quality beers.

Poured from bottle to pint glass:

Pours a moderate amber gold with cream head that dissipates to a ring.

Aroma is of citrusy hops with background nuances of caramel and butter.

Flavor in many ways mocks the aroma. Well balanced flavors make for a wonderful beer. A bit hoppy for the style but enjoyable non-the-less.

Sticky on the tongue. This beer remains on the tongue for some time.

Enjoyable beer. Citrus and pine flavors cut the occasionally overly sweet red feeling of this beer. Not something I would session but a pleasing one off.
