3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle.. Pours a hazy dark amber with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, and sweet caramel malts. Nice bitter taste of citrus, pine and some tobacco. Sweet malt backbone. More hoppy like an IPA than an Amber Ale, but still is good. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Kind of stale though. Not fresh hops.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, smallish head, quite clear very deep orange to red colour, grainy aroma with touches of citrus, pine, orange marmalade and biscuit, citrusy flavour with orange marmalde and biscuit, a bit too sweet but with enough strong bitterness to balance. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a soft and clean reddish copper with one to two fingers of sticky off white head. Nice citrus component in the nose, orange and grapefruit for sure. Crisp and zesty flavor, more like a red IPA or something than hoppy red ale. Light medium body with a moderate bitterness. Nothing too crazy awesome but very well done with some nice hop flavors.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of my absolute favorites! I brew this myself from Northern Brewer company, and its just as delicious. Aroma is the best part of this beer due to the dry hopping after fermentation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Hazy orange red pour. The aroma is fresh piny hops with some spice. Aggressively hopped for an amber, with pine and resin flavors. Nicely balanced by a sweet caramel maltiness. Long bitter finish, with a hint of cinnamon noted. Solid.
