TomTron (427) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Pours a murky amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of earthy hops, spices and grains. Taste has a decent amount of hop bitterness backed by a nice malt balance and finishes pretty dry. Overall I’d say this is a solid offering from a brewery that has yet to disappoint. SLAINTE!

Bottle to glass. Pours a perfect amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is big piney, citrus hops. Nice crisp amber malts in the flavor. Excellent red ale.

Brentv (496) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Pours from bottle a hazy red brown with a very thick off-white pillowy head that sticks to the glass in clumps and doesn’t fade until the bottom of the glass, and even then, retains a bit of its head. Aroma is a rich malty caramely sweetness and the taste follows the same. Some hoppy bitterness, but the malts win the day here. This is almost a barleywine. Full mouthfeel and bittersweet finish.
