Poured an amber/ brown red color with a finger of white head
Smelled fruit, citrus, almost a caramel sweetness and hops
Tasted the sweet fruit and caramel flavors, hops for the bite and definitely got malt character to it
A nice smooth red ale.

Aroma is pine, dank hops and slightly sweet citrus/fruit. The flavor is tropical fruit, hops/mild hop resin, malts, slightly sweet citrus/fruit and a bitter/slightly tart finish.
