3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber, slightly hazy, with a diminishing head and some lacing. Aroma: quite fragrant, interesting, with some sweetness. Flavor is respectable, less than the Rogue Red Rocket; sweet, slightly biscuity, with a hint of caramel, but some hoppy bitterness to balance it and back it up. Average finish at the back of the throat. (10/18/12 Total Wine IPA beer tasting class with Tony.)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 650ml bottle from Erzbierschof. Beautiful red ale, slightly oily characteristics, with a bitter finish. Oh, and that finish. I find it hard to describe but I never had any beer with a finish like that. And I like it.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an extremely hop forward beer. Listed as an amber, this is more like an ipa. Bitter hoppy finish. Poured copper in color with a white head.

I really enjoy this when offered on tap. Nice malty pine aroma, malt heavy flavor backed by ample amounts of piney reisinous hops. Caramel toffe some fruitiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"pretty solid...considerably better than american amber from Rogue, great malt set-up and bitter finish...not as aromatic as i’d like, but worth a try. too expensive for a 3.7."
