I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was amber colored even though it really is a red ale. Who cares right? The beer had a tan head and the beer had a great smell of vanilla. The beer was nice and clean tasting with a very faint vanilla taste on the initial hit. I think I will give this beer another shot.

Dirty red-orange amber brew with a beige head. Looks chewy through all of the murk. Not a bad look for what I hope to be a pronouncingly hoppy red ale.

Earthy and citrusy hops co-mingle and evaporate into the nose above sweltering toasted malts. Despite the mere gentle roast, there is an attractive aroma of char in the beer. Top soil minerality ebbs and flows, but the balance created here is precise.

Sharp beginning with spicy earthy hops and notes of grapefruit pith and orange rind. Very dank, but semi-dry. Toasty roast gets a lot of attention as it passes across the palate like bitter grit. Flowery tea infusion notes are interesting, but somewhat harsh in position. There's a clunky alcohol presence that kind be tasted. Finishes with spicy bitterness and a second burst of carbonation. This beer is quite airy and of the crushing kind. The body travels at a medium speed, but features all kinds of texture. Drinkability is about a C+ to a B-. Fixed Gear is not a red ale I'd scoff at, nor one that I would recommend.
