Looking forward to this one after seeing the overall rating on Beer Advocate about two minutes before writing this. Bought this basically because it’s Marble and I haven’t tried this one yet. Nice to not always have IPAs.

Poured an auburn, clear color with two fingers of frothy, khaki head. Rather serene setting underneath the head. Very good lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Very nice on the smell, getting a great mix of malts and hops. Specifically getting caramel, toasted malts, buttery malts (but not overwhelming which I hate), Mosaic, spicy, dry Chinook, rye, iced tea, spoiled vegetables and light garbage. (Smell - 4.00)

Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose, but decent. Getting toasted malts, buttery caramel malts, dry rye hops, Mosaic, spicy Chinook, sweetened iced tea, spoiled green beans, hints of tropical notes, mainly passion fruit, bitter pine and some woody Nugget. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, toasty finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This one had its moments, but couldn’t pull the trigger on higher ratings. Might have underrated the smell a tad. Decent beer though. (Overall - 3.75)

I feel that this beer is mislabeled on Beer Advocate as a amber/red ale when it should really be classified as a Red IPA. Even still, this is an amazing beer and in my top 5 of all time. Great balance of malty and hoppy characteristics. 5/5.

Excellent hoppy red, big, bright piney hops marry so well with a caramel malt base that never gets too sweet. These sorts of takes on the style are always welcome in my book.

12 oz bottle. Pours very hazy red amber with finger off white head, decent retention, good lacing. Aroma is mild, sweet malt and a touch of tropical fruit. The taste is really balanced nicely. Caramel malt backbone, but not sweet, there are plenty hops. The hop flavor is a mix of citrus peel, pine and dank earthiness which linger just the right amount. Medium soft mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this hop-forward red ale, wanted another.
