Poured into a standard pint glass a full deep amber with a half finger white head that had good retention.Hops are a little subded in the nose with citric notes present,a caramel/biscuit maltiness was there as well.I really like the full creamy mouthfeel,it's full and mellow so it goes down very well.Hops are not as big as I was hoping but their presence is there,grapefruit rind sticks out mainly on the hop side of things with a sweetish caramel toffee malt base that stands right up to the hops.The feel is great and it does have decent hops,it's just not a big hopped up left coast-style amber.

12 oz bottle, "best by" New Year's Eve 2013, served in a lager glass.

Pulling this from the refrigerator, I'm not too excited to have selected a red ale. But wait, it says "West Coast hoppy style red ale" on the label, and releases a fine hoppy aroma upon uncapping, and looks great in the glass, due in part to the creamy and durable tan head. Well, the flavor and feel do not disappoint either. Crisp but soft carbonation in a medium bodied ale. Good, moderately complex mix of hops over a solid malt base. Mildly bitter aftertaste.

O: a really fine smelling, hoppy red ale. Worth seeking out.

A - Clear Red to amber, good head stays at the top, thin lacing. Appealing.

S - Smells like a classic red, cant complain (i suck at picking at the notes of scents)

T - Tastes like a classic red, again I like red, so boon!

M - Smooth, drinkable (i usually hate this word sadly), not highly carbonated, good feel.

O - Cant complain. It does not wow me, but I do not feel slighted by this beer. It's light hoppy character makes me feel like I can recommend this beer as an everyday beer for someone who does not like the full bitter and hoppyness of IPAs.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a fairly clear copper but I do see a few floaters here and there, topped with a near finger of slightly off-white colored head. This retains with a tight ½ finger, which leaves back a big foamy cascade of lacing. The aroma smells floral and leafy with some light pine notes and then more of a ripe and herbal feeling citrus component. A touch of spicy pepper is present as well. Sweet doughy grains work with the citrus along the back.

The taste has an earthy and gritty bitterness to it, with some pine thrown in and is surrounded on the sides by some ripe and herbal citrus character. A backbone of caramel and sweet grains mixes in with that green citrus flavor from behind to give the flavor profile a deep twang. This is dry, earthy and bitter on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and crisp on the tongue with a firm yet still slick and creamy feel along the back. A touch of alcohol hangs on the finish a bit.

This was decent. I usually prefer my hoppy Amber Ales to be more in the West Coast style but this one still brought some different things to the table and at least had a nice fresh drinkability to it for 7%. Not sure if I’d actually go for an entire six-pack of this but I was happy with this bottle.
