COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

Great ruby coloured amber body with a strong copper glow and a pinkish, orange and brown head about three centimetres tall - looks great. Aroma of pungent curacao and other citrus fruits, bright grapefruity hops, a bit of malt and some light toffee sweetness. Medium-bodied; Assertive bright hops with a bit of earth and herbal notes, some solid malt backbone and a bit of the citrus and sweet fruit at the end. Aftertaste shows a little herbal notes, some alcohol warmth and a hint of a bitter medicinal flavour - only a hair and only at the tail end. Overall, a nice beer for sure, one that should be sampled if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 10-Februray-2013 for US$5.99 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 12-March-2013.

Amazing ruby color. Very nice hoppy aroma. Solid mouthfeel. Malty base with hoppy notes. However, the flavor is a bit thin. Needs something more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpringsLicker (3224) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours a beautiful clear deep garnet with a long lasting, generous, off-white head. Complex aroma of pine forest. Moist earth, decay, pine resin. The flavor is well balanced. While there is lots of piney hop flavor and malty sweetness; it is neither bitter or sweet. Some dryness in the finish. Medium bodied, lighter than I had expected. Easy drinking. Nice Amber Ale.

Thanks to the kind soul that brought this to the Thursday pre-Hunahpu Tasting. Pours a hazy amber red brown color with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, toffee, big piney hops with some bitter grapefruit as well. Hop punch with a toffee backbone. Flavor follows with a big malt bill and a citrus punch and piney bite. This is an amber, a barley wine, and an IPA in the same bottle. Outstanding beer with lots of nose and flavor. Medium to full in body, if we’re calling it an amber, and lingering hops into the finish.

Pours dark copper with light tan head. Aroma is piney, dark cherries, fruit cake,. Taste is hoppy bite, followed by slight malty backbone with sour cherries, rasberries. Ends with nice lingering bitterness. A complex and tasted amber/red ale. Would drink this again.

Rusty (1539) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from Tops Liquors. Pours a brown with a large active tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, malts, floral hops, sugars, spices. Flavor is caramel malt, floral hops, not as sweet as it smells with a nice bitter floral hop finish. Body is thinner than expected and the lack of sweetness shift the focus to the floral hop aromas and it’s quite enjoyable. Good stuff.

Shazzam! This is great beer! Poured perhaps slightly too cold. Immediate hop aroma upon opening. Poured with a giant, foamy, frothy, thick, light tan head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber red with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is a very heady balanced, fresh blend of caramel malt and hop that was mostly pine with a little grapefruit. Flavor’s like nose, slightly roasty (which i love), dominated by the hop and just balanced enough by the malt and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are faultless. Finish is like flavor, long, and just a tad medicinal. Very drinkable.

Poured from a bomber it has a reddish amber color with a small head. Aroma of caramel, malts with some citrus. It has a mild bitterness up front with some citrus. There is some toasted malts and then a finish of some toffee. Good finish.
