On tap at Lengthwise Brewing

A: Pours deep reddish copper with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and laces well.

S: Toasty bready malt, earthy, and some fruity notes.

T: Grapefruit pith and pine, lemon, earthy and fruity notes, plumb and peach, toasty bready malt, and toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Quite a different taste from the smell. Drinkable, but really nothing super special.

Tasted on tap at brewery. Lacking in overall aroma and malt flavor for me.

Ordered a pint of this at the new Lengthwise tap house on Calloway Dr. Following review composed from notes.

Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Lightly hazed body looked dark copper until held to light: it then glowed bright reddish amber. A thin, fine, white cap sat atop for the entire session and generated tons of lacing.

Smell: Sweet crystal malt, candied orange, and moist pine. The hops and malts both produce sugary overtones that combine for a sweet, muddled mess. This isn't cloyingly sweet, but it isn't very pleasant either.

Taste: Caramel, toasted multigrain bread, pine resin, earth, and bold, lingering bitterness. This reminds me more of an IPA than an amber, and an aggressively bitter IPA at that. Light salt as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and resinous with moderate carbonation and tremendous mouth-coating. Finishes moderately sweet with lot of piney bitterness.

Overall: A decent representation of this trending style, though I believe it would be much better if they cleaned up the aroma and cut back on the bitterness a bit.

Poured on tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The beer is a deep, dark copper-red with a thin ring of head. The nose is a blend of caramel and malt. On first drink, the malt red flavors are present, and that is quickly followed by a burst of hops. The beer is extremely smooth despite the levels of hops, and has a nice hoppiness to the aftertaste, as well. Very drinkable and enjoyable beer. It shows why this brew is their best-seller.

Picked this up on the way back from LA to Oakland, and glad I did, it's the perfect stop after the Grapevine, I will be hitting these guys again. To the beer, poured a deep amber, little head, day old pour from a growler. Nose was malt dominated, with a hint of hops. Mouthfeel and taste; this was a little out of balance, dry hops in the front but finished slightly malty, but still dominated by the hops. Then again, maybe that was the direction with the triple hops and all. Overall good stuff, I will be stopping by again to pick up some more beer, cool pub to, even though it is Bakers-tucky.

On tap at source. Wanted to try their best selling beer.

A - Pours a deep copper with 2 fingers of orange-white head. Dissiaptes slow and leaves really nice lacing.

S - Honey, toffee, and a slight bit of flowery hops.

T - Honey, toffee, chocolate, and light bittering hops.

M - Full-bodied, well-balanced, and slightly dry.

D - Not bad overall. For a "triple-hop" beer, this was severely lacking. Not like I couldn't say likewise about the Miller beer either.

Beautiful deep brick reddish amber body hosts a two finger tan fluff of a head that turns rocky as it fades and leaves cliffs of lace as it does. Nose is initially very mineral based with tones of wet stone, raw malt extract and hops that have a very fresh cut grassy feel. The minerals continue on with the first sip with a extremely rustic malt character. This is all while the hops add a piney feel for a complete forest like mouthfeel. Even a slight bit of sweetness would have really balanced out this beer. Definitely for those who like their red ales on the dryer side. Drinkability is good regardless.
