A pretty decent amber ale. Consistent and fairly thick bodied tones. It doesn't really give a lot of variance on the flavor, but it's pretty good for what's there. Smooth feel overall. Pretty easy to drink. Not too shabby, but not too memorable either.

A: The beer is slightly hazy reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering he surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: A rather complex mixture of citrusy and floral hops is present in the nose along with notes of caramel malts and hints of pine resin hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has a little more balance with the caramel malts and citrusy hops. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice balance between the citrusy hops and caramel malts.

Served into a teku glass;

A- Dark blood orange color, with hues of light red. Head retention of about 1 finger worth of white foam. Moderate amounts of lacing.

S- A nice mix of floral notes, as well as some strong piney hops.

T- Starts with some pine, but not too bitter. Theres some grapefruit and earthy orange in there as well.

M- Extremely light, but is creamy, which sticks to your mouth. Moderate carbonation.

O- It's a decent beer. Nothing extraordinary though. Not complex whatsoever and you can't really taste the malt base.

Pours a thick, dense, off-white head chock-o-block with resin, great persistence, and leaves nice lacing. Big notes of grapefruit in the nose. Slightly hazed, burnt sienna color. Starts bitter with big grapefruit hop flavor. Builds to a nice medium-high bitterness, and then the malt starts to pop through, and the finish is biscuit with a floral-like hop bitterness lingering.

This is fantastic. EVERYTHING a hoppy red ale SHOULD BE!
