22 oz bomber bought from "Lifesource" in Salem OR
$4.99
This is as pretty a beer as you could wish to see..deep crimson/amber with a lovely creamy and thick light tan head. Great
Curious lack of aroma though..just subdued toffee/caramel malts. A little fruit maybe.
Taste has a little more hop its citrus and slight spice..again strong malts.
Nice medium carbonated mouth feel.
OK single hop amber.

Brewed with Azacca hops, according to the label on the 22 oz bottle purchased at New Seasons Market in Portland.

Handsome intensely red color with a brownish background. Loads of foam in the tall glass. Hops are fairly mild, and the bitternes is quite moderate. Some citrusy peel taste. One of the hop sellers calls it "piney tangerine qualities," a description I can't improve on.

Quite a drinkable and dry Red Ale. Not overly strong. The citrus notes waft along as you sip.
