Pours a gem amber red clear body and an off white head

Nice citrus smell front lemony

Earthy citrus booze juicy hop with some sweet malt in there for good measure

Medium and well carbonated

Finally a beer at this place that makes it worth coming for. Love it. Wish I would have started with this (352 characters)

Had this one in Reno. Very pretty deep garnet color with brown tones.

smelled sweet and flowery, but the aroma was a bit muted.

surprised by the sizable yet smooth hop character, as I was expecting the malts to dominate. but the sweet, candy-like, spiced malt flavors were balanced by a surge of fresh hops that are primarily citrusy, grassy, and piney.

smooth drinking, though high abv (it is an imperial). i love red ales, so when I saw that their seasonal/special brew was an imperial red, I couldn't resist. paired nicely with their black and bleu burger, which is one of my favorite menu items. (603 characters)

Single finger thick head with excellent retention on a clear golden amber body. Excellent lacing, i dont think a beer can look any better. Aroma is a bit on the lighter side with earthy hops, caramel malts and a generic fresh herb note. Full flavored with rich tart citrus and earthy hops and hint of pine bitterness on a toasted and caramel malt backbone. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one has a very fresh aroma and flavor to it and its nicely complex though a little on the hoppy side, which I like, but it effects the balance. (543 characters)
