On tap at the La Jolla Brewhouse as Ex-Loakal. Pours cloudy red with a big offwhite head that leaves good lace. Smells like a red. Sweet malts and fruity hops with some mellow earth. Tastes like a red. Fruity and hoppy with some sweet malts. I don’t get much wood at all. Little bit of alcohol, that’s about it. Medium body, good carbonation.

Sampled on tap at The Bruery Provision. The appearance is a deep not too much head. The aromas are sweet malts, citrus hops, and light oak additions. The flavors are a little alcohol forward at first but the sweet malts begin to come through and a nice mild cinnamon and sweet malts, with a faint but present oak. The mouth is medium bodied, nice and refreshing, but a touch of alcohol. A solid red!

Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of Hopscotch. Couleur cuivre, épaisse beige. Houblonnée et citron, note de pamplemousse, fine note de vanille et de bois. Légèrement fruitée. Le goût de tonneau est un peu en retrait et laisse aussi une bonne place pour le malt et caramel pour se faire noter parmi cette bière qui penche un peu plus sur le houblon.

juiceisloose (1318) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2011
750 ml bottle, courtesy hopscotch. This one pours a hazy, dark reddish orange color and topped by a tall, thick head of khaki colored foam that slowly recedes to a thin, lasting film that leaves patches of lace all around the glass. The aroma shows bright orange citrus and grapefruit hops followed by a sweet caramel malt base and some toasted oak and vanilla. The flavors follows the same lines with rich caramel and toasted grains beneath the bright orange and grapefruit citrus hop bitterness. There is a touch of oaky vanilla on the back end that smooths things out. Medium bodied and smooth on the mouthfeel with moderate carbonation that leads to a dry, semi bitter finish. This is tasty stuff right now, but I could see this falling off pretty quickly.

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2011
Tulip draft on tap at Hopleaf (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice deep coppery hue, a good glow, healthy haze, with a big frothy cakey tannish head, light, sticks around, laces well. Aromas are a healthy dose of citrusy hops, lemons and grapefruit, florals, faint pine, with a touch of melon, moving into toffee, oranges, a touch of spiciness. Initial is really crazy, a blast of vanilla beans up front which mellows the initial hop onslaught, a growing bitter hop bite, lemons and florals, grass, touches of grapefruit. Some toffee, biscuits, and toast, the vanilla really sticks on the initial moving into decent florals, bitterness into the finish. Lingering touches of spicy and mellow vanilla envelopes the palate, kills away the big hop bitterness, cool and sweet. Into the backend, more soapy and floral bitterness comes out, touches of more mellow orange, some earthy maltiness, toast, biscuits, lingering toffee into the end of the middle. Finish is orange and lemon, decent bitterness, lingering vanilla, touches of spice. Really interesting, the vanilla transforms the beer, but not for worse. Very interesting, strangely enjoyable with the vanilla not getting too crazy. Some Orange Dream bar elements..

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! A: The beer appears brown / amber in color with a huge head that leaves tons of lace, even after a moderately slow pour. Over-carbonation perhaps? S: The aroma is of hops, pine, and a slightly sweet malt. T: A good tasting beer, with a few different interesting flavors taking place. The taste profile consists of hops and pine, with notes of oak and fruits. Overall, a nice, enjoyable red ale. M: Highly carbonated, with a medium-thin body. D: Tasty beer. I’d drink this again.

Bottle share (thanks Donnie!) Pours amber color, a little cloudy. Aroma is very oak-y, with a strong alcohol smell. The taste is fairly hoppy and the oak comes through quite a bit in the taste. Good level of carbonation, smooth dry finish. Not bad, although not quite as mellow as I would have thought. Solid beer.
