blueturk (82) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Deep amber red and clear w/ a slightly off white 1 finger head. Big hoppy aroma and good malty hop flavor that balances the beer nicely. A unique red ale, that I’m diggin’

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a one finger off-white head that leaves nice lacing. The nose is nice ripe citrus and toffee. The taste is citrus, caramel and resin. Medium bodied. This one caught me by surprise. Great red ale – nice and hoppy.

daknole (10111) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Reddish pour, beige head. Lots of hops in the nose. Citrus and spicy hops with some herbal notes and a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is hoppy and has a real nice bite to it. Citrus and resinous hops. Nice little malt bill to keep it balanced. Nice beer indeed!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus hops, pine, and faint caramel. It pours a transparent amber with a small soapy off-white head. The flavor starts with light caramel and fruit. The finish has moderate citrus hops. Light-bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Rusty (1542) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Pours a reddish brown with a soapy tan head with lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, malt and a good blast of hops. Flavor is a good dose of hop bitterness with a nice malty backbone and some caramel nuances. Well balanced, easy to drink and a nice bitter finish. This is good stuff.

BOLTZ7555 (2938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Crystal clear crimson pour with a stark white head that left a bit of lacing. Aroma possesses tons of floral hops, green leafy/grassiness, and a bit of honey to finish. Similarly, the flavor leans toward the hops vs malt profile with lots of citrus and a bit of pine. Medium mouthfeel.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Pours a crimson red with generous head that leaves plenty of lace. Nose has plenty of toffee and candied citrus. On the palate the toffee comes through again with passion fruit citrus to balance. Has that "juicy fruit" flavor to it. Medium to light bodied and easy drinking.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours a clear crimson with a big foamy beige head. Has a grassy/floral aroma to it. Medium body, Hoppy but not overwhelming, has a good balance of sweetness. Pretty good red ale.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - APR 17, 2010
Growler from Brewery. Pours a deep dark amber with medium head and lacing. A pungent grassy floral hop aroma with hints of dank malts in the background. This beer is balanced with sharp bitterness falling into the calm cleansing mellowness of the malt. Medium bodied beer that goes down quite smooth finishes with a very nice bitter malt flavor that isnt too overpowering.

Terminus (3326) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 1, 2010
bottle on numerous occasions over the past few months. Man, this could be the best beer brewed in this state! Unfortunately, its only available in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area, but i stock up when im up that way. this awesome beer pours a nice mahogony red hue with a small off-white fluffy head. Nose is huge hops-floral, piney, citric and something that i havent pinpointed yet, but its a characteristic of this fine brewery (another Ted Rice recipe). flavors are really balanced with sticky hops-piney with a nice sweet backbone that is really well balanced. The malts here are not over heavy-just perfect balance. This is one damn fine beer that I could session all the time. Palate is soft with medium carbonation-perfect! could become my favorate session beer (when i have it) A perfect example that amber/red ales dont have to be boring.
