klaing (282) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2016
Amber with frothy off white head. Hops significant on the nose for a red. Taste the same, some caramel but mostly hops, mostly floral, soapy. An OK beer but miscast as a red ale, more iPa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2016
Red tinged dark amber pour. Big off white/khaki head. Swaths of thick lacing. Aroma of fresh grass and hops. Taste is a watery earth and slight hops. Bitter and slick mouth. No deep resiny goodness as promised. A lackluster performance.

TXBadger (2686) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2016
Pours a hazy coppery reddish orange color with white head. Pine, bread, grass, and caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied and chewy. Finishes with pine, malt, and bread.

3/5/16. On tap at World of Beer - Destin. Amber pour with a nice khaki head, good lacing. Light malty aroma, piney, earthy, and woodsy hops, caramel, toffee, biscuit. Lightly bitter flavor, balanced by caramel, toffee, biscuit, earthy, woodsy, and piney hops. Not bad.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2016
A really hoppy amber ale similar to Terrapins or Bear Republics but I get a note similar to the cedar CCB uses it and its bit much.

Way too hoppy for my tastes, but if you dig that kinda thing, enjoy. Great for what it is though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

S_Side_Smitty (754) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours red-amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet! - its almost like rhubarb pie filling. I can kinda get that amber-malt aroma - kinda. Taste has a heavier malt profile than I expected - heavier than the usual caramel malt typical of red ales. Its a little more grainy with a medium sweet caramel mid and a pretty significant hoppy bitterness from mid to lengthy finish. Nice red for hop lovers.

PorterPounder (7687) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Production Facilty on tap. Dark amber pour, sparkling, solid off-white head, thick sticky lacing. Slight caramel sweetness, some toffee notes, a brief hint of cake mix sweetness. Decently thick mouthfeel.

Tap at Hourglass. Reddish brown pour. Spicy citrus hop aroma. Smooth malt body with a well balanced hop bite. Winner!
