3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
