This time of year in the Rockies, one day can span all four seasons. Morning snow gives way to afternoon sun, sending fresh snowmelt into our rivers and into our mash tun. With a complex malt backbone dry hopped for notes of citrus and pine, it’s almost as surprising as the season itself.

Dark Hazy Orange. This has the aroma of citrus hops, caramel, yeasts and malts. The flavor, unlike the smell, has piney hops along with caramel, yeasts and a pretty solid malty backbone. Body is light and moderate in terms of carbonation, making it feel rather crisp. I would classify this more as an IPA than anything else but I still find this to be a very enjoyable beer

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer is transparent and orange / brown in color. The aroma brings dank hops, alcohol, and pretty much smells like a red ale. The flavor is decent, with alcohol more prevalent than expected. The beer is growing on me the more I drink it. The feel is a bit on the thin side. Overall, a solid example of the style. I’d drink this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-23-2011

Bottle pour. Hazy red, lasting off-white head. Good lacing. Oily hops, piney nose. Taste is pine, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, caramel. Sticky mouthfeel. Like the low level of carbonation--it really works in the beer’s favor.

One of the better red ales out there. Plenty of hops to augment the maltiness of a normal red. Not overly bitter, and very enjoyable.

Cybercat (4162) - Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Strong aroma has a firm hoppy overtone, more like an IPA than an amber ale to me. It pours a luscious clear dark copper with a thick, pale copper head that leaves considerable lacing. Malty flavor has a hoppy, slightly bitter overtone and hints of caramel and apple. Smooth texture has good body and good fizz. All around, darned good!

DanielBrown (4164) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. The aroma is fabulous: sweet, smoky and freshly hoppy. Slightly lighter in taste and mouthfeel than I expected; less of a prounced flowery hoppiness, more of a herby, light citrus bloom to the fresh tang. Plenty of orange peel and faint nut from the rye. Balanced and very good.

What a beautiful beer! Deliciously red, great lacy head, full body. Malty goodness with assertive hops. No hint of "watery, and syrupy sweet" as many reds can tend toward here at all. Right up there with Nosferatu as the best red I've had! Thanks Uncle Brian for the hook up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crystal clear amber ale. Light off white head. Mild pine and pineapple hop nose. Neutral palate, just about perfect! Very well balanced. Even malt and the hops are lively mix of grapefruit (not too bitter), pine and pineapple. Finishes minerally with a little carbonated sting. A fine fine Red Ale.

Has a super fresh hop and pine scent. Has a killer bitterness and roast flavor, must seek this out again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
