On tap at Brewpub. Nice head on top of light amber colored beer. Beautiful aroma. Full of citrus (grapefruit, lime, lemon) and flowers (honeysuckle). First taste is all hops. Kind of "green" tasting, perhaps from the amount of hops in this beer. After initial hops comes nice caramel sweetness, then right back to that green hop flavor. Taste to me what I would imagine chlorophyll to taste like. Nice beer, not as bitter as I would have thought (the chalkboard at the pub said 60 IBU’s). Balanced flavors, tasted a little too new.

Strykzone (5500) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Sampled at SE location. Amber with a decent beige head. To style plus. Rich maltiness meets bright fruity hops. Bigger hop profile. Nice fruitiness. A bit of caramel. Bitterness grows.

Tried this beer at Papa Hayden in West Moreland on Father's Day. This red ale is more on the hoppy side. Not bad.

Reddish=amber pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of bread, caramel, and pine. Caramel sweetness with bread backbone and just a hint of bitterness. Crisp and refreshing. Nice beer.

Beautiful reddish amber pour with small creamy head. Light malt aroma, taste introduces some crisp hops to the malt backbone. Dry, chalky, bitter finish.

dagimp (817) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at tomato bistro. Pours a light red color, nothing special at all. Little white lacing and head. Body is light but perfect for the style. Taste is kinda watery. Some tropical fruit hops and mango. Eh, ok but not much else. Many better reds out there.

keepersj12 (2916) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a thin lacing head. The aroma is typical red with a malt base and some wood. The flavor has the typical red notes with that wood and a nice balance, The finish is dry and lasting. Warming to the throat.
