Gorgeous big foam in the tall Timmermans goblet. Color is a copper-tinted amber. Sudsy and mouthfilling.

Some pale malt to start, with a modest sweet zing. Then the bitter bite sets its teeth. It's like sucking on rubber bands and aspirin. Thin and harsh overall. So well made except for-- oops-- the flavor.

This has to be one of the most bitter Red Ales I've ever tried to drink. I just don't get this. It lacks the hoppy complexity of an IPA and goes straight to the bitterness receptor. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Hallam's Wine in La Conner, Wash.

Pours a reddish-purple-amber with a beautiful bout of ocean white head that soon dissipates.

Nose of piney hops and citrus and some carmel malt.

The taste is of bitter lemon, toasted and caramelized malt. The pine and citrus I got from the nose has dissipated as quickly as the head. This is more of a red ale than a red IPA. There's a mineral soapiness that I could do without.

Pours copper with a fading head.
Nose shows sweet malt, pine, cardboard-like oxidised malt notes.
Flavours include citrus and sweet slightly richer malt. Again, seems a little oxidised.
Carbonation is too high.
