Well, we tried naming this beer Scarlet Fever, but the Feds would not approve our label because it was also the name of a disease. Since we’re plumb out of time and other great name ideas, we’re calling this West Coast hoppy red ale, Red Fish. Columbus, Chinook and Cascade hops give the beer a robust piney nose. Two-row, crystal and cara-red malts give the beer a malty background and a 7% abv.

joejames (388) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy amber/orange. One finger off white head with light lacing and some retention. Aroma of caramel and light pine. Taste is mainly sweet, some earthy hop bitterness but not quite enough to balance. Medium body, lively carbonation, chewy mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of caramel, spruce, grass, mango and nuts. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

tillmac62 (511) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2015
BBD 7/11/15. Pours a clear amber with a solid garnet cast. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Somewhat light nose of toasted malt and hops (pine and grapefruit). Heavy light body with a smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a solid finely bubbled prickly finished. Outstanding flavor profile. It is intense, fairly complex, and very well balanced. It’s base is a solid biscuit with heavy caramel notes that are somewhat toasted. Over this is a mild bitterness which has hop flavor elements of pine, grapefruit and an herbal spicy character. The finish is a slow fade of hop flavor that becomes more spicy as it lingers.

Aroma: Caramel, mild bread, and little citrus hops. Appearance: Dark Amber. Very small head, no lacing Taste: Light pine, orange, caramel. Sweet upfront and finishes with a nice lingering bitterness. Palate: Medium body, noticeable bitterness, lightly carbonated. O: I hate Amber ales, especially the hoppy ones. I always dislike whatever ambers I try. This one was an extra from a trade. This is surprisingly balanced and flavorful. caramel, bread, bread, bread, bread, bread, bread,

Beer of month club. Pours a reddish brown with 1 finger head that leaves white film and good lacing when it recedes. Nose is slightly citrus and malt - but now particularly strong. Taste is caramel with hops on finish - smooth. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1647) - Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Appearance: deep clear reddish brown, short light tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma: good nose of toasted caramel malts balanced by citrus hops. Taste: caramel and crystal malts, toasted brown bread, light honey and brown sugar, then citrus and piney hops. Finish: lingering hoppy dryness cleans the palate. Notes: Good amber ale. Has a good malty sweetness to balance the hops. I’m still searching for that perfect amber/red ale that’s just a bit more malty than it is hoppy, but still clean and easy-drinking. Draught at Fins in Cape May, New Jersey.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Chris and Alisa brought this one back from a trip to New Jersey +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty, bitter, fruity hops and crystal malt. The flavor was bitter with a strong crystal malt presence followed by notes of caramel and vague floral and fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.
