Solid citrus pine nose. Taste is very hop forward. Much more hop centric then most reds but a welcome change. Some nice malt still present. Good stuff

650 ml bottle from kbutler. Thanks. Pours a gorgeous dark red color with a small beige head that has good retention. The aroma is medium with roasted barley and pine. The taste is bitter hops forward with pine, citrus, bitter filberts and a not to sweet caramel malt base. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long with lingering bitter roots. Overall: A fine amber ale.

Bottle thanks to Santa. Deep blood red pour with a nice dense off white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma was rich caramel mixed with a nice fruity, slight citrus hop character. The aroma is flawless, slightly sweet and hoppy. Everything you want from this style. Flavors also didn’t disappoint. Slightly sweet caramel cake, light hop notes, slightly earthy and bittersweet finish. Super drinkable hoppy amber. Very nice.
