2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light off white head on a dark red beer. Aroma off slightly, catty, hope spice, soft malt. Flavor is mostly bitter, dusty earth, too light sweet white middle, long bitter end. Water but dusty feel. Underwhelming.

Pours a nice ruby red with a moderate amount of foamy whitehead grapefruit almost sour aroma. Hi level of carbonation light bodied. Not really enough malt balance for a red IPA in my opinion. Unremarkable

(bottle - 12 oz) Pours a slightly reddish hue with a puffy white head. Aroma is standard piney aroma with hints of citrus. Flavor is pretty much the same. Pine resin and bitter hops. A nice IPA but nothing out of the ordinary.

Aromas of toast, caramel, and citrus fruit. Clear ruby-bronze with a fully lasting, rocky, beige head. Off-dry, bitter, toasty, and somewhat grapey. Medium bodied, subtly spicy, carbonation is decent, and finishes with earthy bitterness and a touch of caramel sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Standard-looking, "over-the-counter" red ale ... dark, reddish amber, thin but sticky head. Strong caramel character, unoffending in any way ... richly malted. Better flavored example of a macro lager. (#5021, 5/12/2013)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is quite hoppy, pungent and light woody, lightly earthy, with some caramel. I donít know much about Calypso or Palisade hops, but I like how theyíre used here. Deep red body with orange highlights and a clingy off-tan head. Taste is strongly bitter, lightly rubbery, a good helping of citrus, very dry with a hint of sweetness from the oily hops. Caramel pushed away in favor of an earthen tone. Aggressive light-medium body. Like the pungency on the tongue as well, but thereís a bit too much lost in the malt department.
