Simply....if a hoppy red might interest you then this is your beer. Not overly bitter and pretty smooth.

Pours clear, amber in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is caramel and toasted malt to start followed by pine and a touch of orange rind. Complex, slightly bitter with medium body and moderate carbonation. Makes for a very tasty amber ale. I will get this again.

L: Copper color with a light tan head. Good lacing.

S: Some caramel malt and piney hop aroma.

T: Plenty of earthy west coast hop flavors up front, but the caramel malt sweetness really shines. Finishes with a brown sugar sweetness. Not sure how else to describe it other than it is definitely a red ale.

F: Fairly smooth and easy drinking for the amount of IBUs and alcohol level. Moderate carbonation.

O: Not much to say other than this beer is fantastic.

Pours a deep amber with good head and medium lacing. Getting a malted nose on this one with a smack of hops. Taste is nice, boat loads of bitter sweet hops with a smokey essence and solid bite on the back side. This is a good malty mess all over your taste buds, packed full of flavor that leaves you wanting another sip. This is a medium to full beer with deep flavors.

Light copper color, clear, with a very thin head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and stone fruit, spice and orange. Flavor is smokey and sweet. Dry finish with some hops bitterness in the aftertaste. Still very smooth. I would love to drink this beer with some Southern BBQ.
