Had on tap at the brewery (very cool space, today they're playing customer LP's)

A: As advertised, deep red/mahogany color with off-white head. Excellent lacing

S: Heavy pine and woody malt

T: Semi sharp pine with mild grapefruit. Interesting mix of malt: chocolate, dark raisin crystal, toffee and toast.

M: Smooth

O: Dang unique and does remind me of something I'd drink in Oregon

10/31/17 bottling date

A: Medium brown pour with a very tall and very fluffy tan head. Head thins out fast with huge bubbles but still settles down slowly. Spotty chunks of lacing left behind.

S: Smells hoppy. Citrusy and piney. Strong caramel and maple aroma as well. Kinda smells like maple bark.

T: Not quite so hoppy in the flavor. There is a nice citrus up front for sure. But there is a huge amount of caramel and maple sweetening everything up after that. Almost tastes like root beer drums at one point. Light wave of bitterness on the back end, drying it out quite a bit. Hints of pine in there with a bit of a resinous feel leading into the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, mouth-coating.

O: Excellent hoppy red. Traditional flavors combined with newer hops. Very good!

Poured to a tulip from a bottle dated 10/31/17.
L- Mahogany nails it, but hold it to a bright light and its like a glowing red Christmas ornament. Full-size, dirty beige head of multi-size bubbles that takes about 3-4 minutes to fade to lace and thin head.
S- Citrus borders on lime, hint of caramel.
T-Hoppier than I expected, but there is that lime again. I have never tasted lime in the citrus note of a beer. Malt backs it up nicely.
F- Medium mouth, any more carbonation would be too much, but as is it is, about right.
O- Single Cut has never disappointed me and this is no exception. Maybe not my favorite in their lineup but a great red ale.

On tap at the Iron Vine in Peekskill, NY.

Typical presentation, mild malty sniff.

This a quite sturdy malted up brew. Loads of caramel, maple and malty goodness. Tasty and well worth a try if you see it in your local

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane and another introduction to a new local brewery. Pacific Northwest hopped. A light reddish body, with a little head and lace. Big carbonation. Getting yeast and hops, also a little funky. Drinkable, not what I would expect from the style, still for me drinkable.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark amber to red color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that sat atop of the beer for a good half a minute before gently dissipating. Lots of messy clingy lace surrounding the glass fairly nice.
The aroma had the sharp bitter piney hops bold and up front over top of a light clean biscuit to bready and caramel/toffee malt base. Light citrus came in underneath slyly.
The flavor, like the aroma, definitely keeps the piney bitterness up front with a slight citrusy hop sweetness coming about. As it warmed, more caramel/toffee maltiness coats some biscuit/breadiness nicely. Aftertaste was all about the piney-ness with a substantial bitterness to that.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Definitely a piney bitter grip riding my tongue to a fairly "cool" sort of submission. There's some smoothness in the finish but still that piney-ness really showed it's presence which to me made this a really nice beer all around.
Overall, throughout all of my years reviewing beers and having a fair amount of amber/red ales, I have to admit, this has got to be one of the piney-est ambers on the market. I honestly feel like I licked a pine cone.
