Tap: Clear copper/red color with not much head. It has kind of a funky hop aroma as well as taste. The aftertaste is tinny and the whole flavor and aftertaste hang out for a while in the back of you throat. I liked that part.

Tap. The brewery called this a California Red Ale. Dark golden color with a tan head. The malts are richer and the body is fuller in this beer than the amber. Some hint of caramel.
