Bottle at AZ Wine. Pours a deep red/brown color with a medium tan head. A nice rich fruity hop and caramel nose. The flavor is very nice; super drinkable, loads of fruity and citrus hops, Cascade comes in big time, some caramel and toasted malt balance. This trip had a lot of nice Amber Ales.

Bottle pours a clear copper body with a large beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange rind, and toasted caramel. Creamy medium body is well carbonated. Taste is well balanced but on the hoppy side for style. Crystal, Cascade, and Simcoe work well here and impart a mintiness to along with the citrus. Toasted caramel barely balances. Very tasty and goes down easy.

Brownish Red, with a big fluffy white head. Caramelly, earthy aroma. Flavor is more caramel, with only faintest of hop bite at the end. Nice rich palate.

This beer hits awesome out of the tap and loses a ton from the bottle. But top notch if you can get on tap anywhere. A great same beer all night at a bar.

Aroma - bold hop profile, citrus, faint caramel; Appearance - deep red, thick fluffy head, excellent lacing; Taste - hop filled front, mild malt back, finish is long and very tart; Palate - pretty crisp, average body; Overall - sold for the style, more like a hybrid red/IPA, nice in all aspects.

Deep amber pour with a tan head. Lots of citrus and spicy hops in the aroma, along with nutty toasty caramel malt. Flavor is well balanced, though the hops tend to come out slightly ahead. All in all, a better than average amber.

Pour from a growler not 8 hours old. First pour is the absolute image of a Red: Holding the glass to the light gives a heavy red color, but mostly brown when left to sit. Smell is grassy, but slightly sweet. Taste matches the color, but with the malt and hops balancing perfectly to give a satisfying draw with a slightly bitter after taste. Medium-Light thick head of an eggshell white. Carbonation is also in the almost perfect category; Not fizzy, but not too creamy either. I regularly visit the sampling Tap Room in Santa Fe and this is my standard drinker. High alcohol content with no warmth or burn with a perfectly balanced taste and body. There is nothing wrong with this beer. It is, quite honestly, almost a perfect example of a Red.

Bottle from Liz. Pours deep mahogany with a foamy beige head. Smells like pine! Ok, thereís some roast malt flavor, but thereís a lot of piney hop. And maybe some citrus hop. And maybe some other kind of hop. It isnít really all that bitter on a NW basis, but for an amber this is way over the top. Good brew!

Pours reddish amber with thick creamy beige head and foamy lacing. Strong notes of pine. Hoppy taste as expected from the aroma. Caramel malt lost in the bitterness.
