Dark translucent gold color with small cream head and little lacing. Aroma is faint, but has deep fruity hops, amber malts, and a bit of a latex pool raft scent. Flavor has sweet citrusy hops, grassyness, and just a slight bitter pineyness. Very nice overall.

Aroma is deep caramels, malts, pine needles and that odd slight smell of compost that I think appear in all red ales. Taste is actually awesome, which I was totally unprepared for. Big hoppy sensation with heavy malts. Incredible bitterness for being this style, and if you are going to brew a red ale / amber ale, hop that shit to kingdom come just like Tröegs . Awesome! And I don’t even like amber ales?

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015 BIF project. Burnt orange pour. Big caramel malt sweetness immediately giving easy to a huge candied citrus rind hoppy aroma. Nicely balanced with some resin and floral hop bitterness. Smooth. Very good IPA.

16 oz can. Very fresh: a Feb. 2015 canning date on the bottom.
Very hoppy aroma. I could smell hops right after popping the top on the can a good two feet from my nose. The hoppy aroma strengthened when decanted into my nonic glass. Just as impressive, the fine appearance, with a deep, clear amber body topped by an especially creamy tan head, The head had excellent retention and coated the glass with nice lacing patterns. The flavor is less bitter and less hoppy than the aroma suggests. This drinks like a highly aromatic, relatively malty APA, although the bitterness and hoppiness build a bit in the aftertaste, suggesting a mild-to-moderate IPA.
Feel: excellent, with medium+ soft carbonation in a medium body.Dry finish.
