3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another gem, picked up from the brewery. A great mix of hops and malting with a showcase fruitiness. Good to the last drop. Citrus, peach, smooth mouthfeel though numbing of the palate followed. Tasty stuff, with a mild hoppy aroma. Red tinged body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at Angelic in Madison. Cherry red and rust color. Cherry malt and orange scented hops in the nose, with a fresh and hoppy flavor that is heavy with the crystal malt, dropping off a bit in the finish. An overly hopping amber ale that border on APA/IPA, that would otherwise be called an imperial red if not for the <7% ABV. Very tasty.

2008-11-12. Dark amber with a smallish beige head. (3+) Mild aroma, muted grains, alcohol fueled hops. Lightly astringent malt, sweet caramel flavours, a touch oxidized perhaps? Average palate. Possibly a bit past its prime? <i>Bottle shared by DuctTape</i>

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent copper orange with a wispy-lacing thin white head. Aroma has a nice fresh grapefruity hoppy presence with good sweet caramel maltiness. Body starts with a nice malty sweetness balanced with good green earthy piny hops and a touch of toasted malt toward a bittersweet finish. A very nice amber.
