3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber color with a very nice, pillowy off white head. Aroma has a strong citrus grapefruit and orange note, mild caramel malt sweetness. Flavor starts off with a very pronounced centennial hops presence. Lots of orange, mild grapefruit, some flowery with a very well balanced caramel and biscuit malt flavor late to help cut some of the hops. Body is modest but very crisp. Overall a very good brew. Low alcohol, lots of flavor without having to go to the extreme.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12-oz can this poured a deep amber body, crystal clear, with a bubbly ecru head. Sheets of lace form as the beer is drunk. The aroma is zesty, blended with grapefruit and a fruity caramel from the malt. The taste is fruity, mayhaps an old apple blended with a zest and grapefruit bitterness, not intense, yet stronger than that of some of the so-called IPAs that I’ve had recently. The finish is fairly dry and bitter. This is a repeatable ale.

Tap at Sheffields. Rich reddish amber pour with a small clingy white head. Mild earthy malts and a citrus note. Not very bitter. Decent.

Maybe just me but a red should be more about the malts than the hops. This one was a bit to hop forward to call a red. A very nice English IPA but not a red.

Citrus hop aroma with hints of orange peel. Red, amber color with a tan head. Creamy semi sweet malt flatvor up front. Minty bitterness from hops next, some tones of citrus and notes of cinammon mixed in. Finishes with a tame bitterness that lingers only for a short time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice ruby copper and red in color, with aromas of licorice, almonds, and dried stone fruit. First thing upon tasting is the softness of the beer, with a sweet tropical fruit to start and a light pine needle bitterness in the finish. More delicate than expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is predominantly biscuits and sweet citrus. It pours a copper clear with a medium soapy head that reduces down to a very thin ring with a crystal clear surface. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The texture is relatively light, with a creamy carbonation and a medium full body. It finishes with a biscuits note, but also some caramel and ice cream. There’s definitely some citrus in there too with notes of tangerine and grapefruit. Its dry and leaves a dry, biscuits aftertaste.
