4.51/5 rDev +10.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Had this on tap in a 16 ounce pint glass. Poured a deep rich amber color, almost like liquid mahogany. With about a 1/3 inch head. Earthy hoppy and malty smells up front. Reminded me of nugget nectar in the looks and smell department.
Taste was just like the smell, juicy and piney hops with a powerful malt backbone, was simply delicious and very drinkable. Had another one it was so good and could easily put a few of these back.
Serving type: on-tap

3.63/5 rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
22 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Reddish-copper with 1-2 fingers of tight, creamy head. Good clarity and retention with some light yeast sediment floating around. Moderate carbonation.
Caramel, lemon, grapefruit, and touches of smoke.
Caramel maltiness with notes of burnt toast and smoke. Medium hop bitterness comprised of lemon pith, grapefruit zest, dried pine needles, and onion.
Medium bodied, moderately bitter, juicy, and semi-dry.
A moderately hopped up and smoke Red Ale. I'm sure the freshness is hindering my opinion (11-16-13, seven months past bottling) , but it's just okay.

4.28/5 rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Ruby, chill hazed color with one finger of off-white head that fades slowly with nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, toasted caramel malt, nice and malty with a hint of spiciness, nutty, and a little yeast cake.
Taste: Toasted malt and a fair amount of bitterness start this one off. Medium body, moderate carbonation, earthy bitterness throughout. Finishes fairly quick with some lingering nuttiness.
The Rest: I echo some of the other reviews, nothing in my review would indicate that this is a special beer, but damn it was good.
