superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2012
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy reddish orange color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice thick cap that lingers. Some good foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, orange, toast, pine, herbal, floral, and earthiness. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance; quite a bit of sweetness, a little bit stale feeling. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, pine, floral, orange, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, caramel, pine, toast, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of sweetness/bitterness; with a good overall balance and complexity of flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good red ale. Nice hoppy flavor with good malt balance; very smooth to drink. Nicely enjoyable offering. Questioning the age of this though.

kereltis (33) - Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Beautiful sweet aroma that hits the right spot. The flavor is nice and crisp with a slight dry after taste almost like the after taste of grapefruit. A very pleasant experience and one well worth trying. Goes great with wheat crackers and Cheddar cheese.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Hazy amber color, with creamy head. Some aroma of caramel and hops, but light; limited citrusy touch from the hops. Some caramel aroma; the mouthfeel is lean and rather dry; powerful hopping, very bitter, with limited resins and almost no hop fruits.
Thirstquencher, quite good, an Amber Ale with a lot of hops.

stantheman (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
On tap at The Alibi Room in Gastown. Little head, but a beautiful reddish amber color. Nose is citrus. The flavor? A big load of citrus hops up front, with a bit of malt detected on the finish. Except for the color, this is very reminiscent of the newer, highly hopped IPAs. This is a winner, folks!

Cloudy yellow gold color. Big head. Woody, pine nose. Crisp lite taste and clean finish.

Lagerboy (1171) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Unclear red copper, nice creamy white head settles and lasts. Grassy hoppy aroma. Floral grassy hop taste, mild caramel malt background, a little unbalanced. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Smooth hoppy finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Copper color, almost transparent held up to the light with a half inch of white head. Smells like a handfull of hops. Sharp citrus with malty notes. Initial watery taste, then the hops kicking in some bitterness and a slight malty sweetness. There does not seem to be any complexity, pretty one-sided and unbalanced by the bitter. Crisp and bubbly. Light body and quick finish. Not really excited about this beer. The nose and appearance were really good, but the taste was a let down. Not a great drink, but not bad either.

Gerbeer (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 650 ml bottle. Pours a slightly murky orange/brown without much head. Citrus hops aroma with a hint of brown sugar - slightly skunky. Not really red but definitely a hoppy ale. Orange, pine and cedar notes with a bit of malts and resin.
