It pours a ruby color with a slight bit on clouding. The head is off white with a small bit of lacing. It has aromas of caramel, cherries, and other dried fruits. The sweet taste is that of cherries and dried fruits. It is sweet on the plate as well.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into Spiegelau IPA glass. Strong head that dissipates moderately quickly. Leaves a bit of head on the top of the beer. Little lacing. Nice ruby color. Strong carbonation. Moderately opaque. Nose is great. Fruit and pine. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy with a bit of a carbonated bite. Taste is nice with mild sweetness. Strong hop bitterness, though not much aftertaste. Good maltiness. Pine, orange juice, raisin, and biscuit. A very enjoyable beer.

Beautiful scarlet brew with a nice eggshell head. Ample carbonation. A nice malty, caramel-laden, brown-sugar infused brew with honey, hops, and citrus that add depth. Solid but not mind blowing.

Pours gold amber with medium-coarse head, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is caramel, whole wheat flour, touch of orange juice, floral notes. Body is oily, syrupy, medium weight. Flavor is bitter orange peel, a touch of dark caramel with lots of sap underneath. Not a huge hop flavor, surprisingly malt dominated beer.
