S_Side_Smitty (650) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours red-amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet! - it’s almost like rhubarb pie filling. I can kinda get that amber-malt aroma - kinda. Taste has a heavier malt profile than I expected - heavier than the usual caramel malt typical of red ales. It’s a little more grainy with a medium sweet caramel mid and a pretty significant hoppy bitterness from mid to lengthy finish. Nice red for hop lovers.

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Intense chestnut brown. Respectable ivory head. Parched amber malt aroma with some candied sweetness and woody-mossy tones. Rich flavor with burnt sugar, wood, moss, chaff, good bittering, very light astringency. Bitter becomes prominent on the back end. Dense mouthfeel, frisky and fine-grained carbonation. On tap, Proof Production Facility.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Draft... Pours mostly clear and dirty-orange with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. The bouquet is too restrained, but golden raisins, fresh Band-Aid and hint of new leather are finally pulled from my glass. Medium to full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor offers crunchy, well-developed, honey and toffee malts as a backbone to the real stars of the show - the hops. More bitter than sweet by a good bit, but balanced nicely overall. Plenty of rindy, tannic bitterness here. Lengthy, crisp, fairly bitter finale and aftertaste. I could drink a lot of this.

burg326 (5090) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Poured an amber color with aromas of caramel, light resin, grassy hops and a kiss of citrus. Flavors matched the aromas, light caramel, and grassy hops, decent overall.

Half pour at the brewery. This thing is great. Nice, medium amber color with off white head. Nose is light citrus and lemon with medium notes of caramel malt. Really enjoyable flavor of medium hop and smooth malt. Really enjoyable.
