Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. A little cloying and a little boring, but i guess that should be expected form the style.

Slightly hoppy aroma... Flavor is malty with a nice hop bitterness that gives it a good balance... Not bad...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy orangish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is resiny hops with some caramel malts. The flavor is similar with toffee and caramel malts which are balanced with the resiny hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a hazy red body and a very small tan head. Aroma of malt, honey, caramel. Smells like a super faded IPA to be real honest (super sweet with some oxidized and very faded hops). Slightly grassy. Taste is grass, carmel, bread with an odd and sharp off-flavor in the finish. Light bubbles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to The Cad.
Bright red amber with a good off white head. Very good US hoppy snout with some very pleasing caramel malt in the background. Similar flavour. A little one dimensional but good to drink. Nothing Irish nor red about it if you ask me but it’s a good all rounder all the same. Big bready finish with an assertive bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours ruby copper with a nice tan head. The aroma is very hoppy with citrus and minerals taking the lead. Candy like malts in the background balance it out, but this is a surprisingly hop forward brew. The flavor is caramel, earth, piney, citrusy. Very good.
