look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Deep red color. Very clear. Not a huge head, but lacing around the outside sticks around.

S- Very distinct grapefruit/ tropical fruit aroma dank and resiny

T- Grapefruit and tropical fruit right away, with moderate bitterness. Ends with sweet caramel malty notes. A touch of grassiness in there too which i didnt care for.

M- Velvety, carbonation was spot on.

overall i really liked the beer, if i lived in cali i would be buying this beer a lot.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type- on tap poured into a tulip glass

Appearance- Dark hazy reddish color, pretty solid lacing on the head and some alcohol legs, thick white head but goes away pretty fast

Smell - Roasted malts, smell caramel, hops, just a solid smelling amber ale

Taste- Roasted malts, caramel, hops, some citrus coming through from the hops but just enough not overpowering

Mouthfeel- Smooth, silky solid amber ale

Overall- A pretty solid amber ale just a good beer and for 8%Abv its hidden pretty well just a great beer...Cheers

3.35/5  rDev -15.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip

A: beautiful dark blood red. great hue, khaki head about a pinky high, dissipated fairly quickly

S: light caramel, light hops, allspice, smooth malt.

T: same as smell, very balanced in all areas. just hoppy enough, just malty enough. a little sweet, a little bitter. nice mix

M:little bit chewy. smooth cold sip with a lingering bubbles with a very slight post-milk flemmyness. haha.

O: good beer, not on of my favorites, probably would not buy again, although i got it in a trade with a friend. if someone offered it to me i would take it but not gonna be waiting in line for it anytime soon.

On Tap at the Brewery

A - Dark reddish/brown with an one-finger tan/beige head. The head takes a bit of time to diminish leaving long lasting streaky-white lacing down the entire glass.

S - Plenty going on here - Toasty/yeasty malt with hints of grapefruit, pine, and dark caramel. There are also some earthy notes in there that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

T - Sweet and dark caramel malt right off the bat. The taste finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness to round things off and make you want another sip. Very balanced with no one taste taking the lead.

M - Medium carbonation and body. Full flavor but this beer does not feel heavy in any way.

O - This is fast becoming one of my favorite Red Ales. Well crafted and everything is nicely balanced. And the bonus is that the brewery is about 20+ minutes away.
