3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz pour from Bar/restaurant in Minneapolis.
Amber pour, not much head . Nice color and smell. Hoppy red ale with notes of pine , citrus and caramel . Reminds me a little of Surly Furious.
Nice flavor profile and body. I would buy this for sure if it was available in stores.
Great beer for summer , another great twin cities brewery to keep an eye on.

Nice hop heavy aroma! Very much lemon, and stone fruit! Nice palate and overall a great tasting first red! Put it on cask and shove more hops in it!

Deep ruby pour. Aroma of citrus, with hints of bread. The flavor takes it to another level, though. The citrus remains, but is matched by a great, chunky, roasty malt profile that is more ambitious and complex than what I’m used to seeing in most ryePAs. Maybe not as balanced as some others, but I like what they did here. Well done.

Dark amber color with a malty and hoppy aroma. Very easy drinker with lots of malt and a crisp hop bite. Very solid offering from new Bad Weather brewing.

Draft at Hurricane, Minnetonka. Sweet malt aroma. Dark amber color with slightly off white head. Nice hop profile for an amber. Quite good.

On tap at Buffalo Tap. One of the better ambers I’ve had in awhile. Citrus is a good thing to have with this style in my opinion.

Pint at Happy Gnome - pour is reddish brown, but relatively light in color...medium whitish head. Aroma is sweet and lightly hopped - a slight note of roasted nuts in the background as well. Flavor is quite tasty...sweet, caramely malts are accented by mild, but notable resinous hops. Palate is easy drinking (granted, I had a number of higher ABV beers before this one) - I would happily quaff another in the future!

Tap at Republic. Brown color. Well hoped with malt. Good palate and some herbal character. This is comparable to Bender. Good.

Amber pour with a thick off white head.
Aroma is piney hop, caramel, toffee, nice toasted malt.
Bit on the lighter bodied side. Piney hop again, toasted malt. Lingering metallic bitterness.

Cloudy rust color with large foamy head. Citrus hops on the nose. Wow, surprising taste. Wasn't expecting it to be so hop-forward, which is a good thing. Has a west coast grapefruity hop flavor and balanced nicely with caramel-biscuit malts. Pleasantly surprised with this one. A hopped up easy-drinking amber ale.
