From a can. No pour. Mouthfeel is actually pretty light for a red ale. This ones pretty much a red IPA. Good minty slightly light malt aroma. Taste is mainly like an IPA but with slightly more malt. Solid but not great. Id drink again if I ever found it.

Thanks to Jonny for this. Pours dark garnet with a light beige head. Aroma is rich caramel, big hop aroma and a touch of smoke. Taste is caramel and copper metallic malts, with a solid bittering but not the big citrus/pine hop punch I was hoping for. The smoke cuts the bitterness and doesnt work for me.

Enjoyed at a tasting at Toms last night. 16 oz can. The pour is a nice darker reddish color with maybe some hints of a brown coming through. There is a light tan head that slowly fades off, leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty interesting. Its got a little malt, maybe a hint of caramel, and a light earthy hop. Thats it. Everything is really light and not so balanced. The flavor is much of the same. This one just doesnt really deliver any powerful flavors or depth. Its just light caramel, a sweeter malt, and a hint of earthiness. Its got a touch of bitterness, but hardly anything. The mouth feel is light and clean with a relative lack of carbonation and a lingeringly sweet malt finish. There is hardly anything going on here, but it was somewhat enjoyable.

Fresh 16oz can from the brewery, Feb. 2017. After 6 years, this has made a long-awaited return. Its a hoppy amber, which is a tough style to pull off. The bready/caramel malt sweetness dominates, giving it color but also the majority of its flavor. Strong, piney bitterness at the end. This is packed full of flavor, but Im not sure how well the sweetness and pine bite work together.

on tap-pours a rich tan head with trailing lace and copper/red color. Aroma is medium malt-roasty, pine bite. Taste is resin/pine/citrus-lemon hops, medium malt-roasty/some caramel/peat. OK carbonation.

On tap at The Alchemist last weekend. Pours a muddy brown color with a huge off-white head and great lacing as it went down the glass. The nose carried strong citrus and some light pine as well as a touch of bready amber malt. Some sweetness there. The flavor is mostly pine and citrus, though much of the flavor is cut out by really strong bitterness. Some malt sweetness, but also a bit of diacetyl. Mouthfeel is medium with strong bitterness. Pretty solid, though not as good as many of their other hoppy offerings. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-01-2011

On tap at The Alchemist. 2010 cask version. Pours a rather unattractive muddy reddish brown with a 2 finger beige, foamy head. Head slowly settled down to leave random rings of lace. Strong hoppy aroma with an earthy background. Citrus and pine flavor up front balanced nicely with the same earthiness that you find in the aroma. Moderate body with low carbonation. Very easy to drink. Bitter finish.
