3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can. Hazy light amber with a film of creamy bubbles. Big nose of caramel, resin, cocoa, mild citrus, peach and strawberry. Tastes of strawberry, resin and toffee. Dry finishing touches of toasted walnut, green herb, dry grass, ash and citrus zest. Light-medium body has a nice balance and low-medium carbonation. Tasty and refreshingly different take on an oft-times boring style.

Pours cloudy copper color with a generous fluffy ivory head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is spicy grapefruit and juniper. Flavor is hoppy and malty a good yin yang balance. Complex but subtle. I was pleasantly surprised by this hoppy red ale.

Resinous, treebark, bitter orange peel. Not much substance to the palate. Not bad but not great.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Caramelly, bready, slightly husky, grassy, and straw in the aroma. Taste is grassy, caramelly, somewhat lemony, straw, and floral with a crisp bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. OK.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. can. Pours a well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy, medium amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is pine, toasted malts with heavy cereal, light citrus, vinous notes, balance to the hops....taste is slightly sweet, with heavy cereal malts, biscuit, mild vinous notes, leading to a moderate, short lived bitterness, balance to the malts....mouth feel, light body, minimal astringency, no alcohol, mild acid, slight carbonation. This is another craft beer experiment with hops from "Down Under". The malts are dominant, but rather simple in aroma and flavor. The hops add a bit, but are rather uninteresting. This is not a bad tasting beer, it just doesn’t have anything to recommend it with enthusiasm. BJCP 6/4/12/4/5

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount. Deep, dark red and clear appearance with one finger of white head, slowly dissipating and leaving moderate lacing. Aroma of biscuits, dark fruit, grass, pine, toasted grains, caramel and toffee. Similar flavor, malty, vinous, fruity, bittersweet and grainy. Medium body, soft, smooth and clean. Pretty easy to drink, somewhat enjoyable.
