COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Giantly Delicious” Sequoia Red is an easy drinking beer whose red color can be attributed to the caramel malts used in the brewing process. It is dry hopped with an Amarillo and Cascade combination, which gives it the distinct citrus and piney aroma aftertaste. This beer, with its balance of caramel flavors and hoppy tones is unforgettable and “Giantly Delicious!”

Thank you Jak, from work....Pours a slightly cloudy amber hue with a frothy head that fades slowly with nice lacing. Aromas of a touch of cumin, hay, a little touch of hops, a little caramel and a mild touch of pine. Mouth feel is medium bodied with a mild hop bitterness. Flavors of pine, mild carbonation, and a touch of ketchup/cumin. The cascades aren’t as noticeable as the amarillo hops, maybe because I am from so cal which is a cascade haven. Very well balanced for the style that I’m normally not a big fan of. A definite session ale.

Bottle Pours a deep 2 toned amber brown with a small off white head. Caramel, malt, and a mild hop bitterness in this one. Nice lite amber with some flavors.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Sunburnt orange, long-lasting head. Very, very faint aroma - but what’s there is good. Sweetish balanced roastiness. Flavor is moderately sweet and seems to have some spiciness - cinnamon-like. Subdued, but pleasant enough.

Bottle. Poured a dark, reddish brown color. Aroma of caramel, earth, citrus, and fruit. Flavor was actually quite solid and nuanced. Caramel, nuts, fruit, earth, citrus. Palate was close to being creamy and worked quite well. After taste isn’t the greates, but oh well. Solid beer overall.

Ratman197 (10208) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bomber courtesy of Odeed poured a clear dark reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of cocoa, carmel, light earthiness and light fruitiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, earthiness and black cherry with a smooth lingering malty finish.

Deep Ruby, almost brown, thin white head. Aroma is malty, light caramel, plums. Taste is fairly hoppy with a mild background hoppiness, faint chocolate.

Brown red amber in color with an okay head. Sweet doughy smell with perhaps some citris in there too. Flavor is bland and watery with a hint of hop residue - but nothing big about this at all. Super thin with lackluster carbonation. Not a horrid beer by any means - just nothing very bold about it.

Bottle as one of many generous extras from Odeed. Thanks man!
Pours a reddish cloudy color. Smell is mild caramel malt and light tame hops. Taste is mild as well, with faint hop flavor coming through, but I found this to be lackluster flavorwise. Could be in part to palate fatigue, but still wasn’t overly flavorful. No flaws stuck out, however, and it was an easy drinker.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Oooh, big overcarbonated gusher of a beer when opened, and it grows a 6 inch head when it’s poured into the glass. So, you swirl it a bit, let it settle, pour a bit more, rinse and repeat, and you’ve shaken most of the excess carbonation out of your glass. First impressions of the nose is the light tingling of butter and a more heavy tingling of acidic, sharp yeast, with some nutty and woody base malts in there as well. Tastes basically as it smells, with some buttered yeast, some black pepper and some other chemical-like flavors that all sit atop this resnious grain and bran flavored amber ale, with a moderate level of bitterness and essentially an empty finish. Not completely ruined by the infection, but still not that great.

Aroma – Nice malt aroma with a light hop background.
Appearance – reddish amber color, clear with a nice head.
Flavor – A nice malty beer. The hops where very nice but not huge. Needed more spice and flavor.
Palate – Light Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – A decent amber ale the reddish color throws you. The flavor is light and makes you wish it was stronger to support the great color.
