Zymurgeist2 (940) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Complex rich malt, caramel and floral hops. Pours a hazy amber-copper with a nice white head that laces. Flavor is rich caramel, citrus, sweet malt. Moderate bitterness balances well but lets the malt be the star. Slightly puckering and tart leading to a semi-dry finish of citrus forward hops. Sweetness lingers on the lips. Young oak appears as it slightly warms. Great beer!

high_on_hops (582) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
On tap. Pours a great red-amber with a thin off-white head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of citrus hops, oak, spices like cinnamon, and vanilla with a lemon background. The flavor is citrusy hops and lemon up front with a spice middle and malt aftertaste over a medium, fizzy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty fruity hop aroma. Great red color. This is definitely on the hoppy side for a red. The beer tastes intense at first sip but the ending is pale by comparison. Still, good stuff.

Dodgrblu (585) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 15, 2013
750 ml bottle from the broker, bottle probably held for too long but still a great beer. Head is creamy and lasting. Big palate; oak and malt shine likely b/c hops have died down a bit.

Slightly hazy red - brown beer with big fluffy pale tan head. Nose of citrus sherbet and vanilla oak, nice! The head is lovely mix of sherbet and dry wood. The beer is soft and dry with more lemon citrus sherbet and cream. Dry finish with the citrus turning slightly bitter. Unusual, tasty - outstanding!
