500 ml bottle. Pours a mahogany color with full foamy head. Aromas of resin-y pine, oranges, and brown sugar. Somewhat light, but nice and not overly hoppy. Flavors of pink grapefruit, toasted malts, and a hint of floral. Easy to drink

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured at a good temperature with a huge, foamy, frothy, fluffy, cream- to light tan-colored head that settled slowly and plenty of lace. Color is a hazy moderately deep amber. Aroma is hop, resin, hint citrus, then malt, grain, toffee. Flavor’s like nose, Hop flavor and bitter up front, then some tang and finally a bit of sweet. Body is decent; carbonation good. Finish is like flavor but has some medicinal and smidgen metallic.

Tap. Tastes better than it looks or smells. Somewhat sour and somewhat hoppy. Straddles multiple categories. Pleasant enough.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aroma is malty/yeasty. Med + body. Flavor is roasty malt with some earthy and, perhaps, citrus hop. It’s hoppy enough to be tasty, and it’s bitter enough to not be a typical amber. But it’s malty enough to fall into the amber category. Drinks ok tho.

Up the RA. OK, funny name. 500 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large off-white head. A light nose of Pils malt and some caramel. Smooth caramel, light fruit, earthy, some toffee. A smooth easygoing brew. More of an amber ale. Beidh lá eile ag an bPaorach!

Draught at the brewery in Hood River. Light roastiness and smooth hop nose. Light hazy reddish color. Rich citrus initial / toasty malt in mid, along with some dirt notes, and then balance in mid / turns slowly in the finish, gets smoother, and leaves good bitter traces. Medium body. Quite flavorful. The "red" character is not so evident. But very pleasant overall.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 This beer pours reddish amber in color with a medium off white head. The beer has a medium piney hop aroma to it. The taste was more red the IPA to me. Overall an average beer to me.

Nose of sweet malt. Firm hop bitterness with some residual malt sweetness. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Enjoyable but forgettable.
