A full bodied ale has a deep reddish amber color with a thick creamy head. Pungent hop flavors are derived from 3 different varieties of domestically grown hops. This ale finishes on the dry side with a wonderful citrus hop flavor. 6.2% abv

The Revel Red pours a clear rusty orange color with a light tan head that lasts a good while. The aroma is caramel and citrus. The flavor is caramel up front with a citrus finish. Overall this beer is decent.

nearbeer (3708) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2011 12 oz. Clear, shiny copper with a lasting spongy foam. Aromas of soapy caramel, perfum-ee citrus, and coarse grain. Taste is perfumed orange, coarse Fruit Loop cereal, and a barely-saving, dryish finish of peppery resin and light alcohol. Medium body is slightly oily, sweet and lightly carbonated.

LinusStick (2850) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2011
A decent beer, though I would not use the word "hoppy" anywhere near this beer. Aroma was like a scotch ale. Strong heavy malt with a little smokiness. Pour was a burnt orange with just a few off white bubbles for a head. Taste was all malt. Heavy burnt caramel malt, toffee and some burnt flavors that pop up after the swallow. There is a slightly bitter grapefruit juice-like bitterness that sticks on the top of the mouth and tonsils, but that is the only indication that there are hops in this beer. Nice carbonation.

Goodgrief (1786) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle best buy 5/12/12 (more than 2months from now). Golden amber pour with fluffy head. Sweet caramel and biscuits. A bit cloying. Not dry or hoppy and should still be good according to the freshness stamp. Disappointing beer from a solid brewer.

PhillyCraft (3219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Tap, pours a hazy amber-orange with frothy off white head, great lacing patterns and retention, notes of caramel, cherry, booze, rye, spicy hops and malt. Aftertaste is cherry and toffee alcohol. Pretty good offering, too sweet and sugary for me but still drinkable.

Had on tap in a pint glass. Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so. Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye. The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry. Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish/amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma is all malts. Taste is mostly malt with just a hint of citrus hops. Weird soapy finish. A decent beer, but not hoppy and not what I would consider a good APA.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2013
This poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel, citrus, bready notes, and perfume. The flavor is rather tame and slightly dry with some caramel, toasted oats, and slight citrus showing up. This is more malty than anything. Overall decent session stuff at best.

12oz into a pint, picked up at a random packy with a pick any 6 micros deal, might be a super old bottle though, foam was rushing towards the top before the pour, not cool. After a oozy pour with a thin creamy head that was huge then settled down to a thin rim, the beer shined a heavy cooper amber fire with brown shades, looked rather nice in the light. Taste was a weird metallic, rusty and fresh at the same time, then hops, amber ambivalance, this is a pale ale? drinks like a hoppy red, could go for a red ipa. Aroma is sweet layered nectar, orange swings in, sweet and nutty malts, but the whole thing just seems a bit off to me, has to be the age fo the bottle, with no freshenss date Im left to ponder, this could be alot better if freshness ensued. But at this point in time, its an ok drinker, the hop profile adds alot to the mix, bringing a regular amber towards a more ingrained ipa likeness. Aftertaste is tinny, dry, sour and not quite refreshing. eh...
