Pours a very dusty rose color with a white head that disappears rally quickly. Aromas of citrus fruit, some papaya, slight mango. Interesting. First sip reveals tons of juicy hop character, along with some sharp bitterness and pine harshness. The finish is quite a stand out bitter dry blast. It’s like getting the bottom of the keg. Which I love.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can, thanks to voodoofish65usf. Canned 12/23/13. Pours a completely hazy dark red amber color. Lots of fine particles in the body. Bigger rocky thick off-white head, that leaves good lace. Great head retention. Medium to bigger body. Super smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Caramel malt, some light earthy hop bitterness, and light orange citrus. Light spiciness to the flavor. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, much more so than your typical red ale, but much less than a red IPA. Moderate sweet taste. Very solid red ale. Exactly what I was hoping for, pretty much. The can format is awesome. I would love to pound 6-packs of this on a pontoon or a florida beach..

Pours a murky brownish red with a tan head. Unfortunately going downhill at this point but I got a true sense of the aroma as soon as I opened it. Big citrus notes. Taste is extremely well balanced. Medium body with a light carb.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz. A gusher, producing a small, off-white head over an unclear, amber-colored body. The aroma is lighlty sourish, milky, with a nice hoppyness mostly overpowering the sourness. Pine cones and caramel maltyness too. The flavor has less sourness, but it’s there for sure. Caramel maltyness, pine cones and a nice bitterness too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Bitter, fruity finish with some maltyness. Except for the sourness it’s a nice one. 140111
