Slightly hazy copper-amber pour with a tinge of red. Two finger off-white head with great retention and crazy lacing. Huge resiny, piney, malty nose with hints of toffee, caramel, brown sugar, blood orange, and a touch of grapefruit. The taste is just as bold and juicy as the nose. Hints of pine resin, pink grapefruit, blood orange, toffee, caramel, sweet bread, and brown sugar. The balance is perfect and the drinkability is off the charts! The mouthfeel is smooth with a subtle creaminess along with a bit of hoppy bitterness on the finish. Probably the best example of a Red Ale I've tasted.

Great hoppy amber ale; almost an IPA. Poured with a large cream colored foamy frothy head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a hazy/cloudy medium. Aroma is hop malt a bit of earth. Flavor is like aroma and the hops are not too fruity which the way I prefer it. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is very good with a tapering malty sweet hop end. Session beer.

Damn good beer. Hoppy for an amber ale. It's red/brown and murky. I poured into a snifter. Good tan head, good lacing. Nose almost stings from hops, also caramel malts pop through. It drinks really smoothly. It's almost like a double ipa, but not quite as hoppy. The malts are definitely there and quite delicious. As an experiment, serve this beer to some Fat-Tire junkie and see what happens. I'd wager they would prefer this, unless they really didn't like hops.
