3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a lot of aroma, but the flavor and pallate of this beer made it very enjoyable. With notes of caramel, malts, hops, mandarin, pine and maybe a little chipotle in the aftertaste. Overall a very good beer ! (Not as good as Mac & Jacks African though)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, neat. Poured into a snifter, nice dark red / brown color. Aroma is citrus and grapefruit with some spice. Taste is good, mild bitterness but unexpectedly dry. Wish the malt sweetness would have shown more. OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Not an amber ale at all. This tastes all rye pa. Gets mild the more you drink it. Pretty well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid malty and hop flavor. Good balance. A little dry. Good but doesn’t quite fit my hop profile preference. Would still drink this one anytime.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On first glance and smell its more Red IPA (as advertised) than amber (Ratebeer’s diktat off-kilter again!). Aroma is sweet-caramel malt, floral with a hint of orange (hops have subsided). Smell is a beautiful and enticing blend. Palate is consistent and the medium body carries throughout. Taste is more-sweet malt, some pine and a hint of grapefruit, orange. There’s a rising herbal note that pervades the palate long after swallowing. This is a very good Red IPA. If it was fresh I am sure it would be outstanding.

Pouring a deep amber with a fluffy off white head, this red IPA shoes citrus notes and an earthy taste. Not a big fan, but I think I killed my taste buds with a trip to the Holgate Brewhouse yesterday.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.355l bottle. Hazy reddish dark orange body, off-white head. Huge toast and caramel notes in the aroma escorted with roasted malts and citrusy hops. Taste of caramel, citrusy, piny hops and some roastyness. The finish is really bitter. You can’t tell it’s 7% ABV. Very flavorful and easy to drink. Awesome beer.

Mild aroma, amber wth yellow cap. IPA bitterness mixed with roasted caramel and some sourness in good proportion.
