Caytinator (813) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2014
12oz bottle. Mahogany clear color with a modest head. Nice balanced aroma with both malt & hop notes. The taste is pretty hoppy and piney, more than I was expecting. Definitely not a bad taste, but maybe a little heavyhanded--interesting.

Pours dark clear amber, decent pale head. Aroma is mild hope and sweet figgy malt. Good malt flavor, low bitterness. Great example, will ick up more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RespertFTW (483) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle in ABQ. Didn’t have a glass to pour in so some of this is tough, but had a nice hoppy twist on your classic amber ale. Very drinkable and fresh.

This beer was good but it didn't have that finish that I expect from a red. It had good flavor though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itzjerm (999) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2013
I think this May be abad bottle musty aroma not enjoyable. Nice head hop then leather like flavor. Good mouthfeel. Overall I hope this was an off bottle.

jkwood04 (3438) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 28, 2013
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber/ruby with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, a little spice, and some floral and almost citrusy hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but still a red ale
