brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a light amber color with a fair amount of orange and a creamy off-white head. S: There is a fair amount of citrus hop character with some pine notes to it. A light floral character to go along with toasted malt and a slight sweetness of toffee and bread. T: Lots of malt flavor. Heavy on the bread and toast with a bit of toffee and caramel. The hop flavors are not quite as intense as the aromas. Citrus, grass, and floral notes with a light bitterness. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Not a bad red ale. I liked the aroma a bit better than the nose, however.

Amber pour at the AZ strong beer fest. Nice off white head. Good aroma. Has a nice dose of fruity and spicy hops that go well with the malt bill. Flavor is hoppy and malty with both playing a good role and neither is overpowering. Not bad at all!
