3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Can on 12/24/2013.
Appearance: Pours an orange red with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of pine, light caramel.
Taste: Medium bitterness, lots of caramel, faint grapefruit.
Palate:Medium body, lightly creamy texture, faint carbonation, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: This is a really nice beer. Definitely leans more on the amber style than "red ipa" due to thinkness of the palate, but overall a nice tasty brew.

On tap at Landmark 1800. Hazed amber with a creamy beige wispy crown. Aroma of pine, floral hops, caramel and some tropical fruit beneath. Taste is a mix of the hops with floral, mango, mild citrus and light pine balanced out by sweeter malts and a moderate bitter finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can, best before 27 Mar 2014. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy dark orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and thereís a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. The brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit, orange peel) and herbal hops, bready malt, and some caramel. I think the taste follows the aroma, but thereís also some light piney hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I thought it was a good hoppy brew. $8.99 a 4-pack.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall skinny can - these always make me feel like Iím getting less than 12 ounces. Oaky, amber-gold. Mostly clear, if not. Dense, oatmeal head. Edgy kumquat peel aroma with caramel and resin, light diacetyl. Dryish and starchy, stiff hopping, implied ginger notes - flavor wasnít quite as rich and inviting as the aroma. Mouthy/frothy with a citrus and bitter aftertaste that ends up a little buttery. ABC, Bull Run.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 12 oz can poured into a shaker. Smells buttery and earthy, has some faint hoppy / spicy aroma sneaking in on the back-end, but the sweetness definitely dominates. Pours hazy on the orange side of amber with a thick and foamy eggshell-colored head, lacing is a bit uneven - both large and small lace is present. The taste is medium caramel sweetness with a bit of hoppy bitterness at the swallow. Thereís also a citrus presence throughout the drink, but I canít quite place it - another review mentioned grapefruit, which seems fair. Relatively light body (considering the caramel / malty flavoring) which finishes creamy smooth with very little (if any) carbonation; however, some of the hoppiness sticks around at the finish; not overwhelming like some IPAís, but the faint, thin grassy coating of the mouth is reminiscent; in fact, depending on food pairings, it may be beneficial. Thereís an interesting umami-cheesy flavor (think aged parmesan) that pops up about mid drink as it begins to warms - Iím still relatively undecided on it, but it does give this beer a uniqueness to it. Overall, a drinkable session beer - careful though, that 7% has a way of sneaking up on ya. Itís relatively mild overall - some sweetness, but not overwhelming - so a good one to bring to a party, and surely a crowd pleaser.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Nice juicy fresh pine, centennial, maybe some simcoe and some others in the background. Appearance: Nice golden hazy orange, lots of hop sediment. Long lasting head. Taste: Lots of caramel and bready notes, lots of acidity from high alpha hops through the middle. Ends dry and bitter, but not over the top. Mechanically, a nice beer, doesnít have me wanting another though. Throaty, needs to be more smooth. Enjoyability: 3/5.
