A: Pours a clear deep (almost opaque) garnet red in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a faint cola brown highlight. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit, earthy, and pine/resin hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of caramel and toasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of slightly sweet toasted and caramel malts. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit, earthy, and pine/resin hops which imparts a moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for quite a while.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Slightly better aroma than flavor to this beer but this is a highly drinkable hoppy red/amber ale. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol.

Pours a deep reddish tinged brown with a sticky tightly formed half finger beige head atop,just rich looking.The aromas just don't jump out like I was hoping,I get some earthiness and faint resin.What a great creamy feel wich I really was taken back by.Malt driven up front with some caramel and brown sugar notes before earthy and more of a leafy hopped finish,not a big left coast citric red.Wow this beer is all over the place...in a pretty good way,it looks and feels great and the flavors are not typical.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rich grapefruit and lemon with some brown sugar in the background.
The taste starts with big lemon bitterness, but the (slightly caramel) malt quickly tames it. Great balance.
The texture is softer.
Great profile.
