COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beautiful deep,ruby red color. Tinges of deep purple, with a thin creamy off-white head. Smells of grassy, citurs, sprucy hops and deep caramel notes. Great mouthfeel with a beautiful, bitter, and lasting finish. Notes of chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and bitter citrus. My standard for everything a red ale should be.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint. Appearance: Rich reddish-amber with thin off-white head and light lacing. Aroma: Tart grapefruit, mango and citrus are at the forefront. Smells like an IPA except the malts are more complex with caramel, biscuit and rye-like qualities. Taste: Mostly dried out caramel malt backbone which is overridden by loads of citrusy American hops with strong grapefruit and orange. The finish is spicy, bitter and pine-like. Somewhat reminiscent of rye as well. Palate: Moderately low carbonation, smooth and creamy body, dry finish. Could use either a tinge more carbonation or body - one or the other - but that is a very minor gripe. Overall: Fantastic Non-Imperial Red Ale; actually the best I have had for the style. Highly recommended.

Single bottle. Pours a pretty dark red with a slight tan head. Lots of clinging bubbles and significant lacing. Fresh, clean aroma full of hops and a hint of citrus. Fresh and clean with a hint of malt toward the finish. Lacks the smoke or earthiness of most reds, making it dangerously easy to drink and highly refreshing. What all red ales should aspire to be.

Off the charts aroma of tangerines and clementines. Semi-sparkling nice clear red appearance with a quickly disappearing white head. Slick flavor, not overly sweet with deep hop resin. Mild caramel and toffee with hints of grass. Kind of similar to red seal but hoppier. Very nice. Thanks Brad!

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Bottles @ Blackfriars & from Mybrewerytap.com. Hoppy pine aroma. Medium brown colour with a reddish tinge, not much head. Strong hoppy flavour. Smooth & well balanced. Great one.

I was impressed by the fruity flavour of this India Pale Ale. On the nose this beer is hoppy and spicy. Recommend to try

Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Dark orange colour with amber hues, clear, no head; Rather ’festive’ aromas of mixed dried stone fruits & citrus peel - almost as spiced mince pies, and with hints of sweet, nutty peshwari nan bread; Good weighty body with a bit of alcoholic bite giving impression of more alcohol than it actually has; Flavours on the palate again delivering balance of exotic and darkly spiced citrus fruits and a long lingering finish. Will drink many more of these!

From the tap the color is auburn with an off white head, the aroma is citrus and hops with floral, taste is citrus crisp hoppy with a slightly sweet finish. Solid IPA not overpowering hops

Fruity aroma. Rich amber in color with a creamy head. Rather sweet with some toasty hops and a nice note of citrus. Extremely smooth and drinkable.
