As distinct as the ruddy lava butte that inspired its name, this ale pours mahogany red and has a rich toffee flavor from caramel malt and roasted barley. Amarillo and Tettnang hops give every sip balance and subtle bite.

Malt: Caramel, Roasted Barley
Hops: Amarillo, Tettnang

bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. pours amber with a thin khaki head. leaves a lot of lacing. nice hop notes on the nose. has a bit of grapefruit on the tongue that finishes pretty clean. it’s a nice example of the style supercharged in a way that you would expect from Deschutes.

Barreras (1259) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 2, 2014
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.

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 don’t think the nitro is doing this any favors - I’d guess the aroma / flavor would pop a little more if on CO2.

Nsanders (734) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Nitro tap at Pizza Luce. Dark amber with a creamy tan head. Caramel, over ripe apples, tree sap and plastic aromas. Flavor is sweet at first, but has a strange plastic aftertaste. Medium body with the creamy nitro feel.

Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA, nitro tap
Dark amber to brown color with creamy head. It’s a good Amber Ale, with caramel flavor, light residual sweetness, some crystal malt, and a good amount of fruity and resiny hops; the nitro kills some of the aroma and flavor; it’s also a bit creamy.

vadie (1017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Rouge avec un tête beige moyen. L’arôme léger d’houblon floral avec un peu du malt. Le goût est un peu comme un rouge et un pâle ale. Facile à boire et très fort pour le style.

Hanuta06 (391) - Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Serving: from nitro tap at The Burgundian Tavern. Aroma: lightly sweet malt. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, tan, initial head with mostly lasting longevity and very good lacing. Clear, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with creamy texture and flat carbonation. Overall: nothing special.

Pours copper with a fading head. Nose shows sweet malt, pine, cardboard-like oxidised malt notes. Flavours include citrus and sweet slightly richer malt. Again, seems a little oxidised. Carbonation is too high.

stantheman (779) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bomber from BC Liquor store on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. A dark reddish amber color, with tan head. Faintly sweet and citrus on the nose. An assertive grapefruit hop note hits first, then malts, then it’s a bitter hop finish, followed by faint lingering malt. A hoppy red ale, but with great balance. 3.8.

Close to copper in color. Tiny head, but nice even rings of lacing. Aroma: hops, red fruit, caramel, tart, bread, roast. This is probably going to be good. Flavor: heck yes. All the same stuff as the aroma with the hops especially standing out while the tartness doesn’t overpower. Great roast finish and lingering hop after-effects. Man, Deschutes can really nail stuff sometimes. Overtakes Marshall Revival as my new favorite amber.
