UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Clear orange pour with a thin white head. Caramel malt aroma with grapefruit hops. Just a touch of sweatsock - must be a hop variety that I donít really like. Taste is similar to aroma. Okay.

Somewhere between a Pale ale and an IPA. really nice aroma, i drank from the bottle, so canít comment on porr/appearance much. Tasted great. Went well after dinner, but could definately be a session beer as well..

Tap. Clear amber orange colored pour, good carbonation and a subtle hoppy aroma. Flavor is light marmalade, cedar hops and very dry on the aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden copper with moderate cream colored head. Aroma of sweet orange, resiny pine, flowers, caramel, and berries. Rich, lightly toasty caramel malt base with notes of grapefruit, juniper, and floral pungency in the finish; moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Lighter body with supple texture and light carbonation. Pretty tasty in small doses but floral aspect begins to overpower the rest, diminishing drinkability.

Bottle. Pours orange/amber. Thin yet creamy head that leaves some traces of legs. Hoppy, somewhat floral. Tastes more like an IPA with less pine taste.

I remember having this beer last summer and thinking it was delicious. Donít know if they changed something or if my palate has changed, but I was very dissapointed. Great color, nose smelled like pelletized hops, dirt, and wet dog. Tasted ok, good carbonation and balance, but not as citrusy as I remember. Again, very dissapointed.

12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Reddish brown pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma and flavor a both a nice balance between a big malt presence and a citrusy hops bite. Finishes with a dry bitter bite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
As the name would imply very red in color, red-blonde really, with predominant flavor of anise. Bittersweet texture, some citrus, but that anise really carries the torch.

Appears brownish-red and filtered well. Has a light aroma, both sweet (like caramel) and bitter (cascade hops). The taste is wonderfully smooth; balanced with flavors of caramel, different malts, and citric hops.
