750mL bottle poured into tasting snifter. thanks to acviencko for sharing.

Pours a clear auburn with cherry red tones, a nice sized frothy white head with decent film and lacing.

The nose felt somewhat muted, although notes of sticky hops, caramel malt, and a bit of citrus poked through the clouds.

Nice bitterness up front with grapefruit and pith. More tropical fruit with sweetness and dry bitterness. Bready malts and caramel stickiness add a solid base. Nice hop bite in the finish followed by very faint alcohol warmth.

Medium bodied and carbonated, sticky and dry on the tongue. Drinks really nice, and the alcohol is almost invisible. Definitely a solid example of a hoppy amber - this is probably one of my favorite Exit Series beers so far. (758 characters)

3.5/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. Served at 45-50 degrees.
A: The beer is on the low end of the color spectrum for a red ale. More of a dark gold. Very thin heads that disappears fast and leaves decent lacing.
S: Malt foreword. With some hops on the backend.
T: Malt hits my tongue first followed by hops. Judging from the description on the bottle I was expecting some more hops. There are a few citrus hops listed but they dont really shine in this beer. They are present but not the main focus on this beer.
M: This beer has a med-high mouthfeel. Its rich and sticky.
D: Drinkability is good. Not exactly what I was hoping for but it is tasty. I would like to try again hopefully on tap. (703 characters)
