3.17/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Consumed at the brewpub. $3.50 for a pint. Color is a brownish red but when backlit the beer is deep copper to red color. The head was very thin because the bartender poured off the head. When swirled the beer produces a thin head that dies quickly. No head retention and no lacing.

Smell: Light roasty malts with a dry hoppy scent.

Taste: Fruity to open with some potent hop bitterness that fades fast into a sweet fruity malt aftertaste. The beer is tart and slightly roasty. The malt is biscuity and sandy.

Mouthfeel: Sticky but smooth, light to medium bodied, highly carbonated and bordering on being over-carbonated.

Drinkability: A decent hoppy beer but certainly not the best. Fruitiness is nice and clean but it's lacking in complexity and all around flavor.

From sample glass at the brewery.

Not much aroma aside from a subtle malty sweetness. Poured reddish-amber with very slight cloudiness, but pretty good good clarity overall. Some off-white head in sample glass.

Slightly thin flavor. Beer seems to have been served on nitrogen, so this may have muted the flavor. Decent level of hop bitterness and some spicy hop flavor. A fair amount of medium-dark crystal maltiness. Not especially complex. Hops and malts dominated flavor but lacked the depth I'd expect from a CA Amber ale.

Some astringency in finish, but mouthfeel pretty good overall.

Beautiful deep brick reddish amber body hosts a two finger tan fluff of a head that turns rocky as it fades and leaves cliffs of lace as it does. Nose is initially very mineral based with tones of wet stone, raw malt extract and hops that have a very fresh cut grassy feel. The minerals continue on with the first sip with a extremely rustic malt character. This is all while the hops add a piney feel for a complete forest like mouthfeel. Even a slight bit of sweetness would have really balanced out this beer. Definitely for those who like their red ales on the dryer side. Drinkability is good regardless.

On tap at Lengthwise Brewing

A: Pours deep reddish copper with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and laces well.

S: Toasty bready malt, earthy, and some fruity notes.

T: Grapefruit pith and pine, lemon, earthy and fruity notes, plumb and peach, toasty bready malt, and toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Quite a different taste from the smell. Drinkable, but really nothing super special.

This beer was a cloudy medium amber, tan head retained well, lacing ringed the glass. Sharp hoppy aroma and taste is due to three kinds of hops being used. It was not overpowering by any means but reminds one of a IPA / Red ale. Full bodied and creamy, nice and drinkable, good beer I do say. This brewery should be heard from in the future.

Poured on tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The beer is a deep, dark copper-red with a thin ring of head. The nose is a blend of caramel and malt. On first drink, the malt red flavors are present, and that is quickly followed by a burst of hops. The beer is extremely smooth despite the levels of hops, and has a nice hoppiness to the aftertaste, as well. Very drinkable and enjoyable beer. It shows why this brew is their best-seller.

On tap at source. Wanted to try their best selling beer.

A - Pours a deep copper with 2 fingers of orange-white head. Dissiaptes slow and leaves really nice lacing.

S - Honey, toffee, and a slight bit of flowery hops.

T - Honey, toffee, chocolate, and light bittering hops.

M - Full-bodied, well-balanced, and slightly dry.

D - Not bad overall. For a "triple-hop" beer, this was severely lacking. Not like I couldn't say likewise about the Miller beer either.

Tasted on tap at brewery. Lacking in overall aroma and malt flavor for me.

Hophead delight, smell is great, taste is good. There is a red ale underneath the hopiness, color is a cloudy brown-red. I order this often when visiting, but it is also available through some local retailers for $2.99 a bomber. This is a brew for hopheads but not just for them, it is worth finding the brewery!

Poured a dark cloudy red with almost no head.

The aroma was of some citrusy hops, but uh oh... diacetyl. Not huge amounts, but there shouldn't be any in this beer.

The malt profile was slightly toffeeish with some herbal and earthy hop flavors. There was some asstringency in the finish that wasn't hop based, but tasted like husk tannins. The overall flavor profile was pretty flat - not very lively at all.

The carbonation was good, but the mouthfeel was a little thin.

The was not a good beer. It missed the mark in a few areas and could use some serious improvement. I'd be curious to see what the brewer did as far as water treatment, recipe formulation and fermentation temperature control.
