A- Pours a dark red color with a half finger light tan head that has poor retention and leaves some spotty lacing behind.

S- Caramel malts dominate everything in the aroma though there are some light fruit like notes and grassy hops finish.

T- Again, caramel malts dominate the flavor with the finish mostly grassy hops and light caramel malts.

M- A medium mouth feel with a medium-high carbonation.

D- Meh. A drinkable Amber but nothing to wow you or make you seek it out again. Typical underwhelming flavor that I have come to expect from the brand.

Pours to a thin but permanent white head and no lacing. Color is a dull brown amber. Aroma has some pleasing caramel and sweet malt notes and faint earthy hops. Flavor is clean and steely with caramel sweetness and a harsh bitterness. Mouthfeel is chalky and rough and parching. On the balance it is rather average. Might go well with food but by itself it just lays there and chafes the palate.

Beautiful rich red orange. Very clean. Nice head that doesn't last.

It has an interesting smell. I'm not sure what it is.

The taste is like a hop that is already peaking and leaves a bitter, medicine finish.

The mouthfeel is like a soft wave that's sliding up a shore.
