Great fresh hop aroma, deep red color. Nice soft malt profile -- a good bit of sweetness but not nutty. Good balance against an assertive hop finish. The alcohol level (8%) was pretty apparent but not unpleasant. Very nice!

Deep malty amber color and hoppy aroma. A little spicy. Amarillo and Simcoe hop deliciousness. Full body and all satisfaction. Careful with that 8 percent. Smooth and bitter aftertaste. Oh mama!

Dark brown. Maybe a red tint. Smallish off white head. Resiny hoppy aroma. Lively bite. Smooth malt taste dominated by bitter hops. Deliciousness in a glass.

Tap at barton springs. Deep amber with a cream head. Nose is hops, fruity, and caramel. Great on the palate, hops are nice and bitter, followed by a sweet caramel finish.
