22oz bottle dated 8/4/13. Pours a dark amber with an off white head and decent lacing. Malty aroma. Taste of caramel with the hops coming through on the back end. Interesting combination of flavors reminding me more of a brown ale than an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, dated bottled on 8/4/13. Nice and fresh. Pours an attractive mahogany color with is to the clear side when held to the light. A gentle pour netted a one finger beige head that receded to a healthy amount of lace. Rich caramel malt nose, backed with a good amount of pine resin. Smells like you’re in for a treat. The malt base really dominates the flavor, but the hops are strong enough to prevent it from being to sweet. A nice balance. Full bodied and easy to drink. Loved it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle hand bottled on April 21, 2013. Purchased @ Top Shelf Brews. Dark red with amber highlights for color. The nose brings a light hops as well as a solid amount of caramel malt. The taste is caramel malt with notes of chocolate overlaid with some light hoppy notes. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Malt and hops have a perfect balance. Quite drinkable and really sessionable. I could drink more and well worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep reddish brown with a huge fluffy tan head that leaves much lace on the way down my glass. Smells of bread, caramel, and a hint of chocolate with enough citrus to provide some contrast. Slight sulfur and alcohol detracts but is faint enough that I can get over it. The flavor is pretty solid with a sweet caramel maltiness providing a nice base. Pine and citrus hops layered on top with a hint of chocolate and earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice red ale with a hoppy edge.
