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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear pale copper with a tan head. Aroma is fruity hops, some caramel. Taste is pretty the same character. Similar hoppy bitterness with roasted malt notes aftertaste. Good one.

Tall boy. It is indeed a ruby red body. There’s a lot of sweet crackers, biscuits, and malts. Some cherry macaroons. Fairly forgettable.
