Crimson/copper pour, aggressive carbonation lead to a consistent thin head. Not much on the nose. Detect hints of caramel and slight hops. I like the balance and the touch of bitter hops on the palate but I’m not a fan of the thick, carbonated mouthfeel. Finishes nicely.

Not sure why this beer gets so much praise, it’s got a decent bitter kick but the body lacks depth and the aroma is minimal. Has a slight harshness to the end that is not pleasing. More hype than beer, unfortunately - it’s not bad, just not great.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Surprisinly complex for only 5.2 ABV. Spicy notes at the front, with lots of citrus notes on the back. Lack of biterness is surprising. Quite sweet malt at the front as well.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Really enjoyable beer. It is a good balance, beer with good taste but nothing crazy or over powering. Even someone who might drink lagers and such might be able to drink this beer but also a craft beer fan can enjoy as well.

Very nice deep red, moderate lasting head. As always, a wonderful aroma of Cascade hop. Perfect amount of citrus and floral smell. Taste is just the right combination of bitter, but not stupidly so, and good malty sweetness. Palate is a nice dryish bitter, but perhaps could be a bit more solid overall. Still, as I tell everyone who asks me, this is the beer that everyone should be drinking, all the time, everywhere.

A deep copper-red colour. Very nice aroma. Has a bit of a sharp taste to it at the beginning. Overall I like it.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

A promising start on the aroma front this beer sadly falls away when your lips and nose are struck by the carbonation which is way to intense and strikes me as a mask for the beer’s shortcomings. A shame as its other elements are very encouraging indeed.
