Clear mahogany with a frothy brown creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, caramel, citrus, floral hops and some bready malt. Stellar taste of toffee, caramel, citrus, orange, subtle alcohol and a nice hop finish. Excellent brew.

DrSilverworm (5024) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
4oz on tap at HopCat East Lansing during the Shorts tap takeover. Clear darker red brown color. Thin off-white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Nice tropical fruity aroma, light spicy hop, spicy malt. Bigger body, lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Nice big red ale. Satisfyingly hoppy, bigger red ale.

koleminer20 (429) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Draft at HopCat in East Lansing. The pour is a nice dark ruby with a thin white head that leaves a touch of lace. The aroma and taste are both overwhelmed with strong hops, drowning any other smells or tastes out. The finish is a little dry, but good

From fishmich-Thanks, Bill! Deep red brown with fast fading head and no lacing. Some caramel, floral, and orange citrus hops on nose. Sweet round caramel malt, then bitter grapefruit pith hops. Full palate, round body. Tasty.

bwa5879 (537) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2013
Very dark amber to brown pour with half inch khaki brown head. Pungent malt and citrus hop aroma, a bit light. Light foamy mouthfeel. A little oily. Bitter, slightly dry finish. Taste of lots of pine and floral hops mixed with lots of caramel and smokey malt. Great robust flavor, a keeper for sure.
