4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can. Man dig that crazy aroma! This is a seriously good smell. I really like the mix of floral and citrus hops, touches of orange fruit, flowers, grass. Flavor was might not quite up to par with the nose but still fine. Light, bready with a lemon rind hop flavor. Hints of cereal grain. Semi-dry, very very drinkable. They called it a red ale I bet because itís red. Foamy khaki head, lots of lacing. This is the highest rating Iíve given in years.

Poured from can into pint glass: Pours deep amber with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, pineapple, caramel, and a little pine. Taste is sweet malt, lots of tropical and pineapple up front, and a piney bitter finish. Medium body, nice carbonation, this is a fantastic beer.

Pours a reddish amber with a medium off white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has earthy hops and tea notes...some slight caramel maltiness. Flavor has some doughy maltiness and earthy/tea hops...some piney/resinous notes...just a bit of citrus and hoppy or wheaty spice. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry earthy/piney finish.

Can: The aroma consists of moderate pine, herbal notes, light toasted caramel, and faint fruit. It pours a hazy dark orange with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. There is some very fine webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and fruit. The finish has moderate pine, light grapefruit, and light toasty herbal notes. Itís light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear copper with decent head. Aroma is floral upfront with tangerines and and caramel malt. Taste follows the aroma with the caramel malt more upfront in the sip. Hoppy floral pine bitterness mid and back end of the sip. Awesome Brew!
