3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Earth Fare - 22 oz bomber. Pours a dark copper, slightly murky with a thin off-white head that leaves a thin trail of lacing. Aroma has some passion fruit essence, some over excessive crystal malt. Heavy flavor with a lot of everything. plenty of crystal malt maltiness, some hints of molasses, just a touch of sweet citrus, and a finish of sweet cake mix. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. Just a little too much of everything though.

5 oz sample draft at the New Albanian Pizzeria and Public House in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is a slightly hazed copper reddish with a light tan head. The aroma is big malt grain, warm cereal. The taste is big on the grain, cereal fresh, lightly caramel along with a bright, almost chemical astringent bitterness. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a bit of alcohol heat on the dry finish particularly as the warmed. This was well made though not totally my type of beer.

Aroma is very dry grainy and roasted. I feel like I just opened a bag of grains. Taste is a well balanced bitterness with a dark malty flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep reddish-orange with dense white head. Faint aroma of toasted grain. Nicely balanced roasted malt flavor with a bitter hop finish. Just what I want from a red.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quickly fading caramel aroma, with a touch of hops. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin off-white head. Interesting interplay between the hops and the malts. There’s some bitterness there, as well as a strange astringency. A bit of roasted flavor comes out in the finish. Much thinner body then the usual imperial reds. An interesting beer, not sure if I’ll get it again.

On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Clear amber color. Good big khaki head. Good lace. Medium / bigger body. More dry. Smooth texture. Kind of spicy hops. Not as red as most "red IPAs" though. Bitter taste. Interesting bready spicy malt profile. Solid stuff
