Thanks to my buddy Spoon for the 6pk. Pours a fair size frothy beige head and has a slightly murky amber appearance. Lively carbonation. Aromas of roasted malts, hints of toffee and earthy hops. Flavours are mostly sweet and malty with strong bitter citrus notes, hints of caramel and subtle spices. Has a nice bitterness on the palate. Medium bodied. Not bad.

21 July 2015, tap at Parallel 49. Amber, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is sweet toasty malt and sawdust. Med body and moderately fizzy. Toasty, copper malt, faint grassy hops. Decent enough.

Listigovers (545) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015
Flowery smell, some maltiness. Light brown-red pour with tan lasting lacing head. Body is medium, flavour is leafy hop and some piney? notes, hard to name the way the flavour meshes. Fairly distinctive, but not overpowering in any way, decent brew.

I really liked this beer. Nicely hopped with a malty side to it. Good colour. I will definitely try more beers from Parallel 49.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
341 ml bottle from a Parallel 49 sampler six-pack from Liquor Depot, served in a straight-sided goblet. Pours a deep ruby red hue with a light tan cap that leaves some lacing. Aroma is deep with vinous and citrus hops, moderately sweet, with plenty of spiced dark fruit and berries, and a backing of malt toastiness; flavor is just as vast and has citrus, then vinous, fruitiness, and spiced toastiness. Moderately chewy body, very pleasant aftertaste. A truly luscious red ale, and I do love my red ales.
