Poured into BarrelHouse Brewing pint glass
A: Pours a gorgeous deep ruby red, slightly hazy, with a moderate amount of fluffy tan head that laces very nicely.
S: Sweet malt mixed with citrus and floral hop notes, and a little spice note of some kind that reminds me of some Scottish ales I've tried before.
T: Wonderful big citrus and floral hop punch off the bat, a nice toasted malt sweetness behind it, and a little bit of a grapefruit and pine bitterness on the finish. To me, this is a more hop forward beer.
M: Medium body, moderate carbonation
O: Given the bottle description and name I was expecting a little milder maltier brew. That being said, this is right in my wheelhouse as a hoppy amber ale. Love it!

On-tap at Tizley's in Poulsbo, WA. Poured into a pint pilsner. Clear deep red-brown color, nice one-finger head, then moderate lacing. Aroma is deep and inviting--malt, caramel, fruity, with mild floral hops. Flavor starts with malt and caramel, some toffee, nicely balanced, with moderate citrus hops finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin. Overall this is a really outstanding red ale, I really like it!
