COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This stronger, maltier, and hoppier pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. Cascade dry hopping gives this popular brew a fresh, floral nose.

Tap: dark red amber with decent head. Initial sweet taste fades to bitter almost immediately. Little rough around the edges.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Tap. Red amber in color. Whitish head with some lacing. Fair malt and hop in aroma. Sweet caramel and citric hop. Fairly well balanced, perhaps a little heavy on the hop side. Very noticeable grapefruity finish.

Pailhead (4814) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2005
On tap: Light malt and hop aroma. Hazy amber with a white head. Kind of nutty with a hop finish. A little watery, blanc, and boring.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2005
A little watery. A definite PNW mouthfeel, as far hoppiness goes. Initially sweet, but a definite lead in to hoppy bitterness.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Dark muddy reddish brown, like drying blood...sour cherry-licorice nose is subtle and balanced sweet-tart...roasty, dry initial flavor profile with some background earthy pungent hops...very woody/fruity later, cherries and various berries...wet finish. Lovely.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Tap sample: Clear caramel color with thin rim of bubbles. Caramel dominates the nose, reminded me of caramel candies. Once it warms I can get a hint of the dry hopping, but even then just barely. The hops is prevailant at the finish, making a bitter kiss at the finish. Yum!

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Draft at the Arbor Brewing Company Pub & Eatery. Poured a small white head, uncarbonated, transparent, good lacing, and a red hue. Malty and hoppy aroma and echoed in the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2004
freshly mashed balanced aroma, super dark with a slight brownish red tint, tastes like unfermented homebrew wort with a noticeable hop presence

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 20, 2004
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and copper in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild red malt caramel . Its mouth feel is mild tingly with a palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild red malt hoppy notes. All-in-all very nice brew all around.
