COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied and rich, a sultry jazz singer in your glass. Continuously hopped during the brew and dry hopped after fermentation with a single hop, this beer has a uniquely full flavour profile.

DuffMan (6968) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Bright orange amber, light golden head. Caramel malts balance with soft tropical fruit hops, bitter finish. Not too sweet, nice balance, nice hop character.

amber in the glass. strong aromas of hops and molasses. overly hopped for a red ale. much more like a pale ale. Not sure why it isnít marketed as one.

Amber hue, looks decent, smells kind of hoppy, more what Iíd expect of IPA territory, or perhaps a West Coast style Red. Decent head, sweetish mouthfeel and linger. Even though this is a far cry from most beers dubbed "Red Ale" because of the hops, itís somehow out of balance. Overall decent but I wonít be running for another.

341ml bottle. Hopsy reds seem to be trendy right now, but these manages to be more than a bandwagon jumper. The bitterness is well balanced with the red malts. It is bitter without being too overpowering. Rather more drinkable than some more intense examples of this sub-style. Overall, a real hit for me.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Thanks gethinbeer! Deep amber pour with a thick off-white head. The nose is a bit caramelly with a touch of fairly assertive bitterness. Slightly woodsy bitterness with a lingering earthy flavour. Not very well-integrated or tasty. Some treacle and a very minerally finish. A miss for me. Malts are poorly constructed and they only hit a single dull note. Meh.

plaugher (197) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
341 ml bottle into an English pint glass. Pours a dark amber with a hint of red to it. Light beige head which fades rather quickly. Malty caramel and moderate hoppiness. Kinda sticky on the palate but full and rich body. A bit complex on the back-end, with a moderate bitterness and varying levels of sweetness. Great stuff.

Bendrixian (1160) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Darker amber to red colour and well laced. Big hoppy aroma that is very aggressive. Caramel and malts with a hint of toffee are also abundant on the aroma. Big brew with a very bold taste and doesnít really let up. Very tasty for the style.

Spab (2512) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear dark amber with small off-white head. Aroma is modestly toasty caramel malt and modest citric hopping. Flavour is toasty toffeeish malt and resiny, citric hops. Moderate bitterness in finish. Mouthfeel on the sticky side. Quite pleasant.

Gethinbeer (2189) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
Great aroma of malt and hop. Amber pour with a thin lace. Syrup texture. Lovely hoppy caramel malt flavour. A too little sweet. Smooth finish. Tasty beer. Just lacks some excitement.

Atheist_Peace (972) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Pours a dark amber with reddish highlights and a frothy tan head that sticks around admirably. Caramel and toasted malt on the nose with a nice citrusy hop burst. The palate is more caramel and lightly roasted notes with a lighter citrusy note underneath. Maybe a little thicker than Iíd like but much better than a lot of the generic red ales on the market today.
