Pours a slightly hazy light copper color with a white head. Aroma is slight crystal malts and some sweet citrus hops. Flavor is toasty, slight crystal malts, and a bitter citrus finish. DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2007
sampled at the Brewpub.Poured a golden amber color. Lots of hops on the nose.A sweet hoppy flavor. The finish had a bite to it that choked me. magsinva (1250) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap @ APBC - pours a clear orange brown with a white head. Aroma is floral and a little grassy. Taste is mildly bitter and spicy. Bitterness lingers nicely. Overall, another above average brew. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Poured hazy brownish orange. Nice hoppy fresh grain aroma. Adequate body for the style. Crisp, grassy hops with a hint of grapefruit. Light nutty malt. Long lightly bitter grapefruit finish. An enjoyable beverage and with a name like “red light” (as in district) you can’t go wrong for #420.

Tap @ brewpub - This is much more aggreeable than the Shiva. Deeper in color with a stronger maltiness and what seems to be a more complimentary hop profile. Has more upfront fruitiness, but has a bitter bite in the finish. Decent, but needs food.

Decent, but not my favorite. Pours a nice deep orange color with a decent head. Taste is pretty full on malts and hops with a decent balance. Think the mouthfeel sort of threw me off on this one. Really full and oily- just seems too big for the style of beer. Or more than I was expecting. Definite IPA flavors with grapefruit and pine and caramel. Decent. Would try again knowing what to expect.

Draft, sampler: it pours a nice orangey color with a white head. It’s aroma is sweeter than I feel an ipa should be, but it’s not bad. The bitter hoppiness isn’t quite there, but it’s drinkable and refreshing. beerme31 (685) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Draft. Pours dark golden thin lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and floral. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, medium bitter hop finish. Nice balance and good pale ale overall. Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2007
on tap, pours and cloudy amber, sweet beer, sweet on the front, with mild bitterness on the finish... a good grab.. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Soft but tempting aroma with an amber orange pour and a surprisingly hoppy taste and almost warming mouthfeel.
