Poured into an imperial nonic a burnt orange infused lighter amber with a sticky one finger off white head atop.Citric and piney hops over top of brown sugar and caramel malts in the nose,pretty balanced.Bigger hops on the palate with alot of bitter grapefruit rind notes,more resiny as I drink more,a nice chocolate maltiness in background to go along with the brown sugar.A nice hopped up amber just the way I like em.

A. The bottle says " Red C pours with a crimson red color"... not red at all closer to an amber.
S. Cascade nose with a hint of the tea flavor to follow.
T. Nice bitterness but tea like flavor prevails
M. Mouth feel was appropriate.
O. Label is very deceptive as there is no "deep red hue". "Bold & Aggressive" and 34 IBUs should not be on the same label ....maybe in 1990. Not very often i pour the rest of the bottle down the drain. Very dissapointing maybe i got an old one but would not buy again.

Drank this at the Boynton in Worcester. The beer had a murky brownish-amber appearance with a light white head and some white lacing. Aromas included some balanced hops, malts, with some tea. Taste was pretty good and refreshing thanks to the mouthfeel. The beer was generally sweet with that tea/malt flavor combination. The mouthfeel gave the drink a nice medium body, making it refreshing with my meal. Overall, not too bad.

Excellent Beer from a great nano brewery.

Great smell upfront of hops with a very well balanced finish. Nothing more to say about this one that has not already been reviewed but this is a definite MUST try fresh. Having this beer on the Randall makes it even more delicious.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: amber hue with a moderate haze and a pretty strong effervescence. There are a few floaties swimming around in the body, and the head is two thick fingers of pillowy light-tan foam. Quite attractive.

Smell: sweet mat aroma with a rich component of hops: citrusy, piney, resiny and fruity. The sweet, slightly caramelly undertone creates a nice canvas upon which the hop aromas are built. I think the overall effect is quite enticing indeed. Love it.

Taste: the malt is a combination of sweet caramel and a danker, dustier character; the hops show up as a brooding, slightly vegetal funk. There is an interesting juxtaposition here with the cheerier aroma. Bitterness is moderate and balanced (for a hop-bomb kind of beer), but the final effect is not particularly clean. It's good, and I can see it really floating someone's boat, but it doesn't ensnare me quite so much.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, well-integrated carbonation and a very satisfying, engaging, mouth-filling creaminess. Not bottle-conditioned Belgian wonderful, but definitely entering that weight class.

Overall: this beer has a lot going for it, and although I am not super crazy about the flavor, I can easily blame most of that on the style (which is, admittedly, not my favorite). If I have to sit down and drink an amber ale, this is absolutely not a bad choice at all.
