Re-review from 12oz bottle (still not sure this is the same brew as their Red Ale but whatever) -

A: Clear amber with a huge creamy off-white head that leaves decent lace.

S: Pine, grapefruit, bready malt, blood orange, floral hops, tangerine, faint herbal notes.

T: Herbal bite, suggestions of pine and resin, citrus, smooth, bready, crystal/caramel?, grapefruit, floral, orange.

MF: Medium smooth body, creamy and low bitterness.

O: More malt presence disguises the hop presence here and smooths this beer out. Good stuff, nice hop flavors from an amber ale. I'm keeping both reviews here, since these were obviously released as two separate beers. Scores and notes were very similar, so its more that possible this is the same recipe I guess.

Old review:

Had on-tap @ the Twisted Timber, Boise ID. Served in a Rogue pint shaker.

A: Dark golden copper, nearly opaque, excellent off-white head lacing.

S: Muted...hops, floral, kiss of citrus, malt, faint toasted caramel, light tropical fruit, orange.

T: Light resin, orange, spices, faint cinnamon, toffee, citrus, grain, toasted bread.

MF: Medium body, clean, light bitterness, some creaminess, low-to-medium carbonation.

O: Aroma improves and hops emerge as it warms. Not the best hoppy red I've had, still not a bad beer.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

The pour produced a lot more head than I was expecting, almost too much, but it was still a good-looking, frothy head that formed into a plateaued peak. The head was persistent and chewy in appearance. A copper red liquid with billowing carbonation and a clean, filtered look beneath the head looked delicious. Add to this the semi-opaque appearance and orange hues that add some intrigue.

This beer's smell will take you to paradise. Very tropical and fruity. I get citrusy and piney hops, sweet tropical fruit and bread. The beer is very pungent and aromatic and these notes carry on to the flavor. The palate gets sweet, citrus and bread initially, some pineapple, orange and grapefruit then follow. The beer then finishes sharp, piney and bitter.

This beer is very spring-like, even if it was released while we're still in the clutches of winter. It's light, effervescent and easy-drinking. Starting sweet the beer becomes dry and then finishes bitter. It's distinct from most reds and IPAs in that it's not as creamy and malty and much easier to throw back.

It's a pleasant drink and one I could drink far into the summer. I could easily finish a six pack on my own.
