Bottle. The pour is a lighter red. The aroma is pure hopiness. The taste is mostly hops, nice blend with the red ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a really tiny super white head. A nice deep red color. A spicy malt aroma. Some hops. Taste is wonderful. A balance of hops and the spicy malt profile (rye?). Hops are very resiny, piny. Not my favorite but work so well in this. Relatively thin feel and sharp bubbles, but not much carbonation.

12oz bottle @ green flash. very dark crimson red, sticky resilient 1 finger head. a little copper penny aroma, some very pungent american hops. Yeah, totally like a very bitter red ale. pretty impressive. some metallic notes. decent finish.

Deep reddish amber with a tight tan head leaving some sparse lace. Medium caramel and big pine nose. Light sweet start and a medium bitter middle and long dry finish. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation. Nice pale ale with a nice malt base.

Amber in color. Getting a roasted malt taste, with a hoppy character notes. This isn’t the best red ale I’ve had, but its not the worst either.

Nephilium (1443) - Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Big hop aroma to start this one off, with notes of pine and citrus. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin off-white head. Caramel and roasted flavors start this beer off, with a bright blast of citrus. It then fades to a roasted, bitter finish. Very nice balance between the hops and the malts, with the hops being a bit more pronounced.

Malty aroma, with pine undertones, emerging from the thick foam head. The taste is quite sweet, although there is a bitter finish.

BeerInHeaven (194) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2015
pours a rich ruby copper with a persistent beige head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops. The taste is very good. bright and refreshing citrus at first then quickly "good" bitter with a full mouth feel. Bitter finish with good nasal linger. Great beer!
