Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
At the Santa Fe taproom. Dark brown-red. Thin head. Lots of earthy caramel and brown sugars on the nose, with big citrusy, fruity hops. A little bit sticky and yet overattenuated at the same time - weird. The mix of dark malt and citrusy, fruity hop isn’t quite as bright on the palate as it is on the nose.

TwoSipDip (8895) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a dark rust orange appearance with a very nice, bubbly brown head and nice retention. Rich toasty malty, caramel, a bit burnt, earthy, a touch citrusy hoppy, slightly boozy aroma. Thick, caramel, burnt caramel malty, creamy, a touch piney, grapefruity hoppy, quite rich, somewhat syrupy flavor with some booze on the finish. A little overdone, for me at least.

daknole (8864) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Red pour, light head. Citrus hops, roasted grains, cereal malts, some tropical fruits. Nice resiny finish without being overly bitter.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 bottle. ruby red body. bright hop nose, pine-heavy and resinous with sweet apple notes. medium-thick body, cloying / syrupy but that’s what these things tend to be. dense carbonation, firm malt structure. for what it is it’s not bad.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2012
Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Grapefruit, C-hops galore, fruity as few. Bitter-fruity flavour, grapefruit and grapefruitpeels, with a sweeter finish more reminiscent of lytchee. Very velvety feel, well-carbonated feel if not visually so. Quite balanced, surprisingly original; IPA-like and yet it is definitiely a red ale. Txs, CarlK!

Clear golden color, white head. Hoppy scent. Sweet, bitter, hoppy taste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness.
