Tap: cloudy caramel brown with thin white head. Aroma is pine resin and citrus hoppy. Flavor has a light punch of bitter grapefruit followed by a mild caramel and honey sweetness. Palate seems light with a malty feel and carries a lot of flavor. Easy drinking with nice flavors, not bad just not great.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Tap @ The Doolittle - Castro Valley: Clear red gold with an aroma that’s more pleasant than the thin, watery taste. This is supposed to be a "Red IPA" and it’s a bad example. The body is weak and the flavors are lacking. Kind of like hoppy water.

joeneugs (3493) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 22, 2012
On draft at Tap 25. It pours an amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is toffee and caramel malt with some toast and floral hops. The flavor is caramel and toast with some astringency and mild fruity esters. The finish showcases some mild floral hops and an odd toasty malt quality. Just Ok.
