This beer is a home run. IPA, check, butter-check, a bit of sweetness without an overwhelming sugar sweet taste to it-check indeed. Graphics on the label? Ha? They missed the boat there. Nice alt to dog fish 90.

Can. Pours a pretty clear copper with a tan head that stays. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and dark fruits. Taste is sweet, but not overly and follows the nose with possibly some mossasses. Medium body and well carbed. A nice bitter finish to it as well.

Straight from the can while writing a legal response. This is a big, bold amber ale for a style that can get bland. Lots of hops but sweet malt balanced it well. Very well made.

This is such a great hoppy red ale. I've had it dozens of times but I guess I've never rated it. Definitely one of my favorites from CCB.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber/dark red with a nice big head. Smells citrusy and malty. Taste is fantastic with huge citrus hops balanced with sweet bready malt. Tastes like a bready, malty Jai Alai to me. Medium thick mouthfeel. Outstanding amber ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can to glass. Deep copper hue with light brown creamy head that lingered well. Aroma is spicy, malt, orange rind, plum, brown sugar. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a bitter following that blends well in the finish. Overall this is a very nice red ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of reisling grapes and caramel cereal grain. Appears orange red with beautiful lace and fluffy foam. Taste is very bitter for a red, but good, more of a red ipa, sweet grain up front with grape like hoppiness that fades into a very hoppy bitterness on the end. Palate is fizzy and nice. Overall, unique and delicious.

Tap. Murky red. Good lacing. Subtle malt nose. Rich, almost syrupy body. Caramel malt followed by a surprising hop smack.

Almost like nugget nevtar. Great hop malt flavor. As good as a red as I have had.
