On tap @ the Bruery. Pours reddish copper with thin head. Aroma is sweet roasty malt and earthy hops. Taste is clean roasty caramel malt with thin somewhat harsh bitter hops. Quite oaky and dry on the finish. Excellent for an amber but maybe I was expecting more from a big red from these guys.

alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2013
On tap at the Bruery; a light brown color with a khaki like head. Aroma of citrus, fig, and dark fruit. Flavor had a bit more complexity with some caramel/toffee. Good overall.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Tap at The Bruery. Muddy burnt orange pour. Medium to weak foam. Nose is hefty sage and white pepper. Bright and herbal. Taste is bright lemon and lime, not sticky, fairy dry and dusty with bitter rind and heavy coriander. Good, refreshing despite appearance. Bright herbs abound. Shockingly different than expected.

Homer321 (2141) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2013
nose of citrusy, centennial hops with a moderate wood/oak character, toffee like malt notes. moderate hop bitterness that is supported by a biscuity and sweet malt bill. overall very pleasant, up front, with a slightly drying astringency, possibly a combo of hops and wood. I quite like, especially at the price point. good stuff

Marheb (2302) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Un malt délicat et complexe, une touche de centennial et de vanille dans un liquide aussi facile à boire que précieux.

Cross between a red and a pale ale. Cascade on the nose - big time. A little bitter finishing, but very good overall. This is very close to what I like.

DocJitsu (1046) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Pours a dirty, cloudy, homebrewish, orange-amber with a pillowy, foamy long-lasting light caramel colored head. Just lovely! Aromas of grapefruit, toffee, and fruit hard candy. Smooth, lightly oily mouthfeel. Ripe fruit, toffee, and a bit of oaky vanilla. Grapefruit bitterness at the finish. Very nice effort.

baraciisch (2016) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Hazy reddish brown in color... Floral and sweet caramel malt aroma... flavor is typical of a red, malty with notes of hops on the palate... Not that impressed... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcos (1592) - Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on 6/18/2013.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy red.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, light pine, oak.
Taste: Light medium bitterness, light oak, caramel but not overpowering. Accessible.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering aftertaste, slightly sticky.

Summary: I had this at Savor 2011 and as with a lot of late tastings at a Savor event didn’t really get good notes on it, so was excited to try again. This did not disappoint. I could drink this everyday, it’s really enjoyable, not too aggressive but plenty of flavor. Too bad I live on the wrong coast to get it easily...
