16 oz can, thanks Bro- Pours autumn chestnut red with a large off white head that reduces leaving cobwebby lacework and minimal head. Aroma is spicy hops, pine, rye bread. The taste is caramel malts, bitter hops, piney, biscuity rye bread, more of a red IPA, solid beer.

Cloudy orange-brown body with a tawny, coarse head that leaves no lace. The nose is based mostly on caramel malt and husk aromas, with a bit of orange juice and pith and some unidentifiable bitterness, similar to noble hop aromas. The flavor is also mostly malt, a coarse, raw, dry kind of malt. The hop flavors are restricted to the basics of orange varieties; any kind of other fruits, skunkiness, pine, earth, or anything else interesting are absent. It is much more bitter than sweet, which isn't to say it is either bitter or dry. The body is medium-full, carbonation has disarmed itself to a pleasant prickle.
I like that a 16 ounce 6.6% can was in my local mix-a-six, apart from that this seemed to be just another brew. Nothing either offensive nor ingenious about it. Balance was great, flavors lacking complexity but ok, body was nice, appearance passable. Sure.

Poured an amber color with a nice two finger head. The head broke slowly and there was nice lacing visible. The smell was bready and caramel malts and a broad citrusy hops. The malts show up quickly on tasting but are then pushed out of the way for a hop blast. The hops are strong and remain on the tongue quite a while. The feel is medium with good carbonation.

A long time want for me, and it was great to have. I have learned the lesson of hyping things up though, as this was a good beer, but not a fantastic one.

I had this beer on a flight from St. Paul to Seattle. Don't know if that made it better or not, but my first impression was that it was too highly carbonated. The color, red-orange, was exactly what I expected from reading the can, and the strong hops aroma came through and persisted throughout the three hour flight. I would like to try this one again while I'm on the ground.
