4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red ale with an assertive aroma of floral hops, tropical fruits (papaya, pineapple). Sweet character. Wonderful blend of fruity hop and bright bready malts. Complex and flavourful, a top notch session brew.

Pours a thin head with a clear amber colored body.
The aroma is wonderful pine and grapefruit. Simple but done well.
The taste is moderate bitter pine and lemon all the way through.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.
Great smell and taste.

I liked this one a lot. Nice and hoppy throughout the whole beer. Mild malt and body for the main part of the brew. Hints at pine in there. Yumsauce.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom. Deep red pour with a very tiny white head. Nice fruit flavor with a solid pine hop bite. Very good smelling and tasting and well balanced. Caldera kept winning with me until I tried the Pils...

Tap @ Baily’s taproom. Pours a dark red (not amber) color with a small white head. This beer was nice and subtle. Hints of toffee and grass. the hops made themselves known before fading nicely into the matiness of the beer... good red ale.

In a glass it is a really pretty beer. But proves that an incredibly good red can come from a can.

On draft at the Laurelhurst Brew and View. Went alright with the specialty pizza and was more than the $3 ticket. More commendable than the film (Atonement) IMO.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Horse Brass: Small white head, dark dark amber red color. Aroma of slightly fruity malts and citrusy hops. Flavor is moderately malty and has notes of fruity esters, moderate hop bitterness and citrus and floral hop flavors, i am picking up some amarillo. Very clean and very crisp. Nearing ipa levels of hops. Just a very good and drinkable ale.
