Solid American IPA with spicy hop profile. Some resiny notes but little fruitiness. Nice clarity in the gorgeous auburn beer. Deep side of the tongue bitterness that fades with a slick mouthfeel.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at a RAM Brewery restaurant - Served in a frosty glass (?!?!?!) Has an amber color (more like the color of weak iced tea). Has a piney nose and an earthy taste. The body is thin and the finish on this beer is terrible with a bitter woodsy taste. They sell 18 and 24 oz of this stuff. I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to do with the other 17 ounces.

Floral hop aroma. Oramge-amber in color. Hoppy and caramel malty taste. A real clean finish, almost like an amber ale.
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF
