2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can: Cloudy red, rusty copper pour with a beige head that reduces to a collar quickly. Strange, conflicting aroma with juicy grapefruit flesh, light weediness, mild fusel alcohol, faint peppery notes, & a touch of stale, caramel malt sweetness. Like a weird mix of what you’d expect from both a red ale & a brown ale... with more hops... & fusel notes (even only at 6.1% ABV). Taste is surprisingly watery on the palate, given the strength of the aroma (no matter how strange). Hint of pine cones with a wood chip-like hop presence; I’d say "earthy" but there’s a stronger, woodsy essence about them. Finishes with white pepper covered grapefruit peel, light in execution with faint spiciness. Warmth brings out the fusel notes in the lingering aftertaste again. Getting weird vibes from this one, not really sure where to place my finger. Not undrinkable by any means, but certainly not my jam.

16 oz can, thanks to lumpsowers, 11/2/2013. Pours brown, deep copper, creamy off-white head rests on the surface, lacing bunched up around the glass. Aroma is earthy toasted malts, biscuit, caramel with citrus overtones, herbal grassy hops. Taste is caramel malts with moderate roast, piney bitterness. Medium body, smooth and drinkable. Decent, hoppy amber ale.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pretty brown color. The head was creamy, but not thick like a stout beer. Medium light and very tasty. This beer is smooth and far from heavy. I enjoy the lightly roasted caramel mixed with hints of butter. I think I can taste a little banana. This is smooth. It kind of reminds me of an IPA because it has that Tony Cox hops profile. I love the very light, malty backbone. It’s not stinky. Heavy malt liquor sucks!!! Sorry Colt 45. This is refreshing like all the breakfast beverages at once: Citrus juice, Coffee, Donuts, and a little milk.
