Holy hops batman - not that thats a bad thing. Beautiful copper colour with a fairly minimal head. Good hop/malt blend throughout with some sweetness and some citric bitterness. Nice balanced medium-bitter linger to it as well. Cheers to IPFreely and DougShoemaker.

Metallic red in color. Very handsome. Very pleasant and very frangrant aroma. Caramel, peat and toffee malt backbone but the hop fragrance is what shines with an immense amount of floral, spicy and citrus notes. Lovely. Malt accentuated flavor with tons of caramel and butterscotch. The hops are floral, very pleasant, moderately bitter and barely acidic and display flavors of grapefruit and wood. Centennial hops. Yum Yum. Great beer.

Dark brown with red tint and hop fumes. Head very thick and will eventually settle while lacing the glass. Being a red ale I didnt expect it to be this bitter or extremely hoppy but thats exactly what it is. Flavour has citrus with pine background and perhaps some kind of sugars. Sharp all the way to the finish.

ruby-amber in color w/ a big & foamy tannish head. light reddish hue to the head also. hoppy & sweet malty nose. malty flavor and not much carbonation. slightly sticky, watery mouthfeel. some hop at the finish but not too bitter. malt sweetnes comes in stronger upon warming. nice red ale, enough hops to make it CA style.

I can see why this was recommended to me as a scottish ale with really nice hop character. THe typical scottish flavors were there, including a very nice malt character. Hops were quite good, as well. I really enjoyed this one.

Poured a reddish amber color, and had a hoppy, semi sweet aroma. Flavor was bitter and slightly sweet as well, but is a great beer!

Pours a very deep ruby/amber color. Aroma is strongly sweet, hoppy, and floral with some citrus notes as well. Strong hoppy bitter flavor. An alcolhol flavor is present as well. Not too shabby.

Definitely interesting. Probably closest to the hoppy kind of American ambers but the alcohols a bit high for that. It sort of splits the difference between that and an IPA. Actaully, it could easilty pass as an IPA given the hopping rate aside from the color and a bit of roastiness... Anyway, I liked it a lot. Not the most complex beer but very tasty and beautiful with a big foamy head that leaves a thick sheet of lace. I dig it. Try one. Youll like it.

Earthy, malty, smokey and lemony aroma; solid front end maltiness and a cascade-like hoppy and dryish finish; particulated body; good balance and different

Mahogany with a creamy head and spotty lacing. Caramel and roasted malts. Some honey. Alcohol and bitter notes with some peppery spices. Citrus comes out in the flavor. More caramel and roast. Bitter orange and some alcohol. Nice blend of malts and hops that trails off bitter.
