COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No one can deny the beer climate is changing. Extreme bittering patterns and massive flavor oscillations are the new normal.

thornecb (4398) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Resin aromas. Medium bodied and well balanced with sweet caramel and bitter resin. Medium length dry finish.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12oz can. Hazy orange-tan body, some floaties. Big, frothy white head. A pretty nice, big Amber Ale...maybe approaching American Strong. Well balanced, a nice rindy hop flavor balances out the rich malts. Vanilla, cinnamon, maybe some mild spices or just the amber malt. English yeast, a hint of diacetyl? Some creamy, unfiltered yeast tones. An enjoyable beer.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Can thanks to Ed. Pours out a nice amber color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of a decent amount of citrus hops, caramel, toffee, light nutty notes. Taste is much the same, citrus hops, dough, under-done toast, some resiny hops, lingering sweetness. Aroma was pretty nice, taste was less pronounced.

rubbishystuff (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2014
So if they were going for a darker colored IPA they hit the mark, although the hops leaned toward unbalanced. The hops were fresh an piney. If they were going for a winter warmer thing, then too pale, and not malty enough. Not bad, hop heads will enjoy it more. Serving: Can

ScipioA (302) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours out from a skinny can into a tulip glass as a hazy red/brown with a tan head. Decent citrus hop aroma mixed with some ’meh’ beery malt. Flavor isn’t the greatest either, harsh and astringent without anything particularly interesting to back it up. Sweet malts with a heavy alcohol presence. There’s a lingering bitter aftertaste with a little hint of citrus. Really nice mouthfeel, this is super thick with restrained carbonation. Not a bad beer, in fact one of the better winter warmers, but nothing really great either.

Patrickctenchi (3658) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Skinny can: Pours hazed amber/orange with a full, puffy, vanilla head. Caramel and orange-peel scent. Taste is caramel, orange, with a pronounced spiced bitter. Pretty good.

ads135 (2955) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2014
A very nice, very hoppy winter warmer. Hints of dark fruit sweetness, even a residual fruit flavor on the tongue at the end of the taste.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Can. Pours hazy amber, small beige head that dissipates quickly with good lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine, grapefruit. Flavor is resin, grapefruit pulp, caramel. Some sweetness, light plus bitterness. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice effort at a red IPA.
