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.

This brew had a nice crimson color. There was nothing memorable about the aroma of taste, except a bit of bitterness at the end. What I did notice and like was that it was a very nice brew overall.
I have had several beers from 4 Hands, none great, but everyone was good.

Pours a medium to light iced tea color. Tan head is a little rocky and dissipates quickly---only got about 1/2 foam and I poured it straight down the middle of a tulip glass. Slight citrus aroma and maltyness. Good crisp taste with only slight bitterness, thin mouthfeel but that’s okay for this. 4 stars.

Draft at taproom. Pours light red with a white head that disappears quickly. Fairly big grapefruit on the nose. Huge grapefruit on the tongue. It does pucker the tongue a bit which is nice I suppose. Finishes clean. Nice.

Caramel pour with a tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, fruit. Taste is a little spiciness, caramel malt, a little toast. A solid beer, very enjoyable.

Super malty red ale with a nice hopps backbone. Smells malty. Had a sweet finish with a hip bite at the end. Pours copper in color with a white head. A decent beer. Had out of a bottle at home.

[Tap] Reddish amber pour with about a half inch of head on top. Abrasive hoppy aroma. Lighter orange and pine notes. Flavors of resin, pine sap, caramel and some earth. Astringent bitterness in the finish. Hints of booze come through as well. Interesting.
