Bottle via trade with cbkschubert. Thanks craig! Decent hoppy aroma with nothing standing out. Deep ruby look with thin head. Flavor is good but mild and slightly hoppy. Smooth but too one-dimensional. Decent brew.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a dark brown color ale with a big dirty brown color head wit good retention. Aroma of big citrusy hops is quite powerful and dominant with some roasted sweet caramel malt also noticeable. Taste is almost entirely dominated by big citrus hops with a good caramel malt backbone. Body is about average and carbonation is slightly above average. If you like big citrus flavour beer from the west coast then this is probably going got be for you.

The bastardization from hops is very noticeable in the aroma and the dry hoppy head. Very gritty taste. Has the scottish maltiness in the beginning and hops near the end. Weird and good, but seems to float in that space where I can’t decide whether I really like it or really don’t.

Inviting appearance, sweet aroma and bitter taste are the three most noticable characteristics. Translucent red-brown body below a big, frothy head that sticks around. The big nose is full of malts, caramel, floral scents and grapefruit. Small notes of earthiness. Flavor is initially slightly sweet, but the hops quickly dominate filling the mouth with a long, bitter finish. Medium body and watery texture. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish.

rochioli1965 (15) - USA - NOV 4, 2006
Moderate hop aroma, most of washington varieties, malt aroma balances with the hops. Poured a cloudy red with tan head that disipated within a min. Flavor of bitter hops and a slight burnt note possible from darker malts or astringentcy due to hop additions. ver full mouthfeel and mouth coating but bitterness detracts a slight

nimbleprop (5787) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Malty aroma very little hoppiness. Poured an amber red with very little off white head. Initial flavor is malty, fruity sugary. Slight maple and brown sugar flavors. Clean finish. Excellent red.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - OCT 7, 2006
Bought this for the Mrs. She likes red ales for there lack of hops. Thats why i ended up having this. Full flavored hoppiness with lots of caramel malts and spices. Didn’t like the hop flavor though i got pine, celery and slight grapefruit. A bit metalic and leathery at the end. Not great, but drinkable.

mkgrenwel (601) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Smooth, rich palate. Dominant caramel. A good bit spicy. Even a bit of a chili pepper flavor. Slightly resiny. A bit leathery and smoky. Some slight pine. Grape. Obviously quite complex. Hops play a nice supporting role. Another well done Bear Republic beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Pours dark amber brown w/ medium semi cremy froth. Aroma is potent w/ floral hops. medium full nectar w/ ample mellow residual effers. Flavors are strong and citrusy, w/ caramel, leather and spice. Malty sweet backbone is perfect w/ big, bright, dusty hops pushing forward. Not your typical red ale. Just slightly unbalanced. Its big. A good food brew paired w/ rich and spicey dishes. Really good after a few nips of premium Bourbon. The palate prepped w/ Bourbon won’t let the hops show allowing you a different perspective. nice. Highly recommended.
