Pick a hop pack. 341ml, 6%abv. As the name says, it pours ruby, if not amber in color. The head is tight, and tan colored. It has good retention, and sticks to the glass. Subtle aroma with notes of molasses, and sweet citrus. The smooth base of pale, crystal, and victory malt is well complimented by the cascade hops. Medium carbonation and some chewiness. Overall, smooth, satisfying, and a good example of a hop forward amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Listigovers (507) - 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.

341 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, reddish amber with a thin, off-white head. Light malty aroma of caramel and fruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, citrus and pine with a dry, bitter, resiny finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

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.

wlajwl (4614) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2015
Aroma is toasted malts, mild/medium nuttiness and fruit. The flavor is fruit, malts/toasted malts, citrus, very light hops and a mix of bitter and slightly sour/tangy in the finish.

Pours hazy dark Amber. Aroma of red fruit, some malt. A boring taste with not bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
