beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 1, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear red with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of crystal malt along with a few citrusy notes. The flavor is malt with a bit of caramel followed by a wash of moderate grapefruit pith bitterness along with a bit of pine. The initial smoothness from the oatmeal is more than offset by the hops wash. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Caramel malt and citrus peel hops aroma. Hazy deep amber with a small off-white head. Biscuity caramel malt and weedy citrus peel hops flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. A bit harsh.

superspak (3500) - Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, apple, caramel, biscuit, oats, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, pear, caramel, biscuit, toffee, oats, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, pear, caramel, biscuit, oats, toffee, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

bootle tossed my way via boostipa (wave). sweet candied apple. carmelized brown sugar. touch of bitter resin adds some balance. subtle orangepeel, pineapple fruitiness. but still too sweet for my liking. comes across as a light barleywine. nice body. boostredipa accepted.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2012
On tap at Jimmy’s, tapped 3 days ago though relatively freshly kegged. More brown than red, unfiltered. Great body, full but not heavy, mostly dry with a decent hop character. Coffee and mild coffee. Very decent.

chinchill (3124) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Undated but just purchased 12 oz bottle. This is first and foremost a hoppy red ale with no clear sign of oatmeal although it may contribute to the relatively smooth feel. Moderately bitter with plenty of tropical fruit notes and some spiciness from the hops. The hops seem more earthy and herbal and less fruity in the nose. Lingering, moderately bitter, hoppy aftertaste.
