3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub 8/29/09: Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma of sweet light caramel malt and fresh piny hop character. Starts with good fullness and sweet toasty caramel with a decent balance of resiny piny hops before a slightly drier crisp bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and well-balanced.

On tap. Poured a dark amber red with a light brown head. Aroma had citrus hops (orange and a bit of lemon) with an undertone of malts (bread and grain). Flavor began malty, but transformed quickly in to a hop finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at brewpub. Dark amber, totally disappearing pale head. Caramelly nose, little grain, light piney American hops. Flavor is sweetish caramel malts, little resinous and spicy hops, hint of raisins and red grapefruit. IPA-like take on a boring style.

Pours reddish amber with a large tanned head. Some chillhaze. Aroma is light malt, and hoppy, floral, spicy, peach and citrus. Flavout is bitter. To much citrus and grape to be in balance. Notes of caramel and a floral aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Copper with a small head. Citrus and chocolate and hints of smoked malts aroma. Milky chocolate flavours together with citrus. Enjoyable. Funny though, it seems to develop a more piney character after warming up a bit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at the brewpub, 13 Feb 2009) Reddish amber colour with a frothy, off-white head. Fruity nose with notes of caramel, citrus and orange peel. Fruity taste with caramel, orange peel and a fresh, citrussy hop flavour in the aroma. Not very bitter, but with a fresh hop character. The fairly thin body doesn’t really support the flavours all the way through. Still, fresh and tasty beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
<i>Bottle.</i> Pours a hazy reddish/golden/amber with a big fluffy beige head and a good lacing. Very nice. Chewy pine hop aroma on a solid, but humble base of malts. Great! Flavour is chewy hops and sweet malt – a lot like the aroma really. Feels a bit watery. Still, very good though. Finish is a sweet hoppy bitterness with slight apple notes lingering. Slight liquorice notes as it warms. Not a complex beer, but well-made. Not a lot of red ale in it though (except the colour) – more like an American style IPA. <i>12-11-08.</i>
