Bomber. Pine resiny hop aroma with notes of caramel, toffee and some citrus. Pours reddish amber with a big beige head with good retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and toffee flavors with a rich mouthfeel. Finishes slightly dry with pine resin hoppiness and a bit of citrus. Nice, well balanced red.

"Get it at the brewery...itís AWESOME fresh...maybe a 4.5+. Good in the bottle too, about a 4, but I love Deschutes and thereís been a time or 2 when it was the best beer they were serving on tap, and iím more of a stout/imperial ipa type of guy!"

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a copper color with a caramel malt aroma. Taste is clean, with a malt and sweet toffee flavor. The flavor is subtle with a slight roasted malt aftertaste. A bit sweet for a red amber ale but overall okay.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro tap at Town Hall Lanes. Rich orange-amber pour with a nice frothy nitro head. Toffee, pine - this is just okay for me. I donít think the nitro is doing this any favors - Iíd guess the aroma / flavor would pop a little more if on CO2.
