Huge fan of this one. Pours dark red with white head and significant lacing. Great piney hop aroma that holds through the palate. It’s very piney. Palate is balanced by a slightly sweet maltyness that is balanced really well. Crisp clean finish.

Great red ale. Tasted at the brewery at Savor Symposium. Draft pours a nice amber color. This beer is a hop bomb! Sweetness of the malt backbone is balanced by the nice hoppy flavors of citrus (grapefruit). Draft only release.

On tap @ In De Wildeman. Color is deep red-brown, chestnut, clear. Even off white head with good lace. Smells of aromatic hops, caramel, with retronasal roasted malts, some licorice/drop/laurel and a light acidity. Flavor is roasted bitter (medium), with a light sweetness. Medium bodied. Finishes with a firm bitterness & roast.

On tap 1/2 pint at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Almost clear deep red brown with large tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of pine and citric hops with bready malts. Taste of pine, pineapple, citrus and bread and caramel malts. Very hoppy yet nicely balanced. Medium body, medium carbonation and a pleasant mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a nice dark red ale. Aroma was of malts and a bit of candy. Flavor was bitter with a bit of a sour pucker but very enjoyable for the style.
