deep orange color with an off-white, small head. Nose gives lots of caramel malt. Tough to get the hop in the nose on this one with all the caramel malt, but the taste proves it in bitterness. Good amber.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of hops and reddish malt. Appearance is red and cloudy with minimal head. Flavor is carbonated, semisweet hoppiness, and red tones (?). Resembling a red pale ale? If such a thing can be said. Nice without being too overbearing or bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy deep orange with a medium tan head that leaves a wake of lace as it reacquaints itself with the brew below. Caramel aroma is balanced out by some grapefruit and pine. Body is balanced as well with a thick caramel start followed up by some nice citrus and woodsy hops. Goes down pretty easy and has a minor amount of bitterness. A nice amber.

Bottle split with barrios at woody’s. Pours clear reddish amber with fair light tan head. Nice malt backbone with a decent florat and citrus hop profile that really stands out in the flavor. Not overly bitter. Like a retro red with a generous hop addition. Impressed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark reddish amber with a 1-2 finger creamy beige head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel, some citrus hops, straw, birdseed and a little toasted bread. Flavor is grainy malt, caramel, toasted grain, sweet malt, citrus and planty hops throughout, and some mineral notes near the finish. Finish is citrus hops and a little bitterness with a burnt sugar fade. Palate is medium body, slightly slick and well carbonated (maybe a little on the sharp side) with a somewhat creamy entry and dry finish. Overall this is a really nice amber, lots of hop character

Dark copper pour, nice head and lacing. Beery sweet aroma. Fizzy and hoppy. A little bit nutty, nice mellow hops, with a touch of fruits. High carb and some alcohol in the finish. Nice beer, better than most.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber pour with an off white bubly head. Aroma ha a lot of citrus, including key lime pie and tangerine, as well as a biscuity, caramel quality. Flavor has more of a pine resin taste, along with the citrus, caramel, and specifically an orange rind taste at the end. Palate is light, a bit watery, but a very nice amber ale.
