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

Bottle. Crisp amber hue, thick offwhite head sustains, brilliant clarity. Nose is a blend of citrus hops, carmel-toffee, and slight oak-vanilla. Flavor is woody tones balanced out by caramel-crystal malts, high bitterness with low-med hop flavors of citrus and resin, hints of some darker chocolate, finishes sweet. Medium body, moderate carbonation, thick texture. A full flavored and layered amber ale with good wood accenting, easy drinking at 6.9%.

On tap at the initiation party. Amber in color. Nice aromas of earthy fresh hops . Medium bodied with solid balanced flavors of bitter hops, lightly sweet malt with the oak giving it a great finish. A good beer for sure.

Pours amber red with a cream colored and full frothy head. Strong piney and hoppy aroma. Citrus fruits, earth, pine and a toasted biscuit presence. Strong bittering hops are notable throughout. Slight caramel malt backbone and a long dry finish.

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.

Loved this beer- had it on tap at Bruery Provisions and then brought a bottle home as well. One of the better red/ambers I’ve had. Big nose with blend of citrus and caramels; gorgeously dark red and perfect carbonation. Taste is huge and like a red IPA. Reminds me of GF HopHead Red but not as bitter.

I had high hopes for this beer before I tried it. It is well crafted, and I love the idea to barrel age a red ale. But I felt that the dry hopping is too much of a contradicting flavor for this beer. But again. Well crafted

On tap at the Bruery Provisions. Pours red...go figure. Smells of citrus and some piney hops. Some sweetness. Lots of bitterness at the end...more than I expected. Not much of the oaked flavor in there.

Enjoyable and as the deScription suggest, this is a brash one. Pours a nice reddish hue. Citrus hop notes and oak in the nose. flavor is piercingly bitter, with hints of oak. Not much else going on for me, but I certainly enjoyed it.
