3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"All Right! This was a pretty hoppining bier. Pours a clear amber, not noticealby hoppy at first but the presense sneaks in under the tounge, and catches you near the finish. Very balanced, slightly spicey in aroma and in taste. Nice lacing and nice retention on the head. Way better then the Attaboy Amber."

Tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear red-amber pour with a very soapy/clingy off-white head. Huge complex hop nose - pine, citrus, grass - cool. Medium creamy palate. Well balanced multiple-hop taste. Again, pine and citrus, plus some bready malts. Very well done!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Vintage. Poured clear reddish-amber with a creamy whitish head. The aroma picked up sweet darker fruit and caramel with accents of vanilla and earthy hops.. sweet overall and enjoyable. The flavor found sweet-ish dark fruit and caramel at the core.. fruit and peppery bitterness surrounded, amped up by a hit of alcohol warmth.. sweet and fairly hot on the finish. Medium-bodied and a little tart on the palate.. near-cloying on the back-end.. OK feel and flow beyond that.

Pours and looks like you would expect from a red ale. More hops than one would expect, but balanced well. This is an old ratting so I would like to try this again being much more into hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tab at the brewpub. Pours a clear red with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of light grassy and floral hops with a bit of backing bread. Flavor starts with bread but has some grassy hops and light fruits in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at vintage. 4oz taster pour... Reddish caramel brown hue, semi-transparent but just barely, and topped with a creamy off-white head... Smooth malty and an earthy piney bitterness to coincide with the aforementioned... Flavors are mild and earthy with an equal balance of earthy citrus hops and a deeper malt profile. Medium bodied with a mild to medium level of carbonation.
