On tap at Colorado Plus poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthjiness, citrus and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, fruittiness and light earthiness with a smooth dry lightly bitter lingering fruity finish.

Can - amber ale? - why isn’t this listed as an american strong ale? - anyway, pours a moderately hazy dark red - frothy, well-sustained head - nose is mostly a potent mix of hops - resinous, citric, piney, fruity, peppery - some sticky malt sweetness underneath - more pleasant than I am making it sound - soft carbonation, full body - simple flavor - mostly just sticky caramel maltiness, followed by potent peppery and woody hops with a light bit of alcohol in the finish - it does what it sets out to do, I guess - okay.

Taste is citrus, orange peel, biscuit, light grass, weed, candied fruits, caramel, and grapefruit with a medium bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. Damn decent red ale.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Dark red, decent head, looks like a double red to me. The aroma is downright awful, I couldn’t tell if it was paint or paint thinner, ugh. The taste was interesting, not super hoppy but easily a double red or imperial red, malty, decent. Overall though the smell killed it and made this really unpleasant, I was glad I only had a small snifter of it. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-22-2012 20:05:06

Draught at Wynkoop, October 2012, GABF week. A very god amber ale. Sweet with fresh hops, so full of hop flavor I am thinking this might be a wet hopped beer. Some brown sugar and sweet malt for balance. Full-flavored. A good beer.
