2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Pours a beautiful reddish brown, with a 2 finger light caramel head, strong retention. Smells fruity and slightly boozy. Really nice mouthfeel, hop heavy front that lingers and than fades into a caramel linger. Good beer

Pours a light amber with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus, sweet malt, and some caramel. Taste is a smooth malty and nice mild slight grapefruit hoppy finish. A very good Amber/Red ale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
More of a pale with red ale notes than a true red ale. Keeping that in mind, this is good. Smooth for a red, which as a style sometimes are too assertive. This one is more mellow, and quite enjoyable.

Clearish amber under a thin rocky light beige head. Strong nose with a herbal piney hop note, a touch of lemon, and earthy caramalts. Lightish palate with boozy earthy esters, a earthy toast tone and a bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Taniguchi, 550 yen. An APA in a fantastic looking can. It pours a clear red color that lives up to the name. Atruly hoppy citrus nose with a bit of biscuit. The taste is nicely bitter, fruity, piney with a good dose of crisp biscuit from the malts and a somewhat malty spicy quality. Very nice, one of the best of the night.

A rich clear mahogany red pour with a short lasting full coarsely bubbled head. Citrus fruit hops jump out on the nose. Pine citrus malty and very nice; another solid beer HUB.

On Tap at Boise’s Cloud 9 Nano-Pub Clear redish amber with a full dense off white head. Malty woody bitter aroma, and a crisp sharp hoppy bite. Clean and straight forward, good malty Pale and still has a lot of good hop flavor.
