COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied deep mahogany ale with ruby red highlights. Citrus notes of chamomile, grapefruit and Meyer lemon brighten the aroma. A zesty array of hop flavors from mango and bitter orange to green mint and hibiscus meld with the nutty, roasted caramel and subtle dried fruit flavors of the complex malt profile to create a surprisingly fresh, yet warming example of the style.

As described, a beautiful deep ruby mahogany. Frothy white head. Bigger medium malty hoppy aroma. Balanced. Caramel. Bread. Red fruit. Pine. Tropical. Citrus. Flavor follows and adds some spiciness. Lighter full body. Touch of alcohol. Balanced, medium bitterness. I love reds and this is a good one.

Ericular (793) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2015
On tap @ Alaskan Brewing Company. This one is smooth, bitter, complex, strong, bold. Looks great in the glass. Great balance of slightly roasted malts and strong hops to round it out.

WABeerFiend (321) - - JUN 6, 2015
06.15.16 best by date. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pub glass. A: Caramel, flower, citrus, and toffee. A: 1 finger fluffy head that stays. Hazy ruby red body with bubbles streaming up. T: Bready malt and lingering citrus dominate. Raisin and woodiness are subtle. P: Smooth with bubbles on the finish. O: It’s ok. The bitterness does stay around for awhile. The malt seems a little light, surprisingly.

foyle (314) - Wyoming, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle pint glass. Appearance: pours 1" cream colored head that drops slowly with some lacing. Color is a rich red-mahogany with tons of streaming carbonation. Aroma: complex and strong with citrus and floral being dominant along with bread dough. Mouthfeel: medium to full bodied with a somewhat astringent dry finish. Flavor: complex combination of strong hops grapefruit, orange, and floral along with rich roasted malt, caramel and raisin. Overall: very well made. A sipper, definitely not a ’lawnmower’ beer.

beechner224 (896) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle picked up in jeanu. Pours dark Amber with white head. Aroma is malt forward, bready. Taste is super malty, lord of caramel, missing some hop presence.

Livendadream (154) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Btl pours clear light Amber color with a rocky off white head that stays around for quite awhile, leaving webs of lace in glass. Aromas of citrus, pine and mango. Taste of citrus,grapefruit, orange,pineapple, and sweet caramel. Medium body, good carbonation, smooth, slippery mouthfeel and a dry bitter finish. Great easy drinking red ale that is extremely balanced between hops and malt. Alcohol is hidden nicely untill you have had a few. Probably one of the best Alaskan beers out right now.

Arayaga2 (1898) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Almost clear red, with a rocky tan head. Aroma is sweet typical red citrus and malt profile, with a cutting ethanol edge. Taste is the same with odd toffee espresso notes into the finish, along with some biscuit. $3/12oz

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into nonic pint. Brown or very dark red, nearly opaque, strong white long-lasting head. Full and creamy body. Herby and malty nose. Pretty complex taste. Very malty. Much more so than I would have expected for a red. A little sweetness and quite bitter. Herby, a little tropical fruit, a little woody. Very drinkable for something of this size.
