12 oz single can from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Deep red appearance with a tan head. Hoppy aroma plus caramel malt and toasted grain. Similar flavor, moderate bitterness (pine/earth) balanced by a mild sweetness over a medium body. OK. UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2015

16 oz can. Pours ruby amber with a medium frothy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.Dogbrick (14309) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2015
The aroma is sweet sugary caramel and toffee malt with some nuttiness.
The flavor is sweet nutty caramel and toffee malt with a big resiny piney hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a decent hoppy red.
Sample at the taproom. Clear dark amber color with a medium fluffy ivory white head that recedes quickly. Short strings of lacing. Malt, caramel and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, citrus and earthy hops. The finish is malty up front with a mildly bitter grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

4 pack of pint cans packaged on November 23. Purchased at Grapes and Grains. This is a very good looking beer. It’s a clear, bright red color with an extremely dense and frothy head. The red body has cleared out so well. Carbonation looks decent. Not too low and not extremely effervescent. The aroma is metallic, like a handful of pennies. Unfortunately, that’s the first thing that jumps out at me. Beneath that are notes of pine, biscuits and toffee. The palate is medium full and rather crisp. There is ample hop bite in the flavor, but I don’t know about the can talkin’ bout "India Red Ale" and shit. It seems within the boundaries for an American amber ale. Malts are biscuity and semi sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is much less metallic than the aroma. Hops provide an appropriate bite with notes of evergreen and earth. I don’t get much citrus. This isn’t too shabby, but I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the other beers I’ve had from Big Choice and my expectations for this red ale were elevated. This is my first canned beer from this brewery. I don’t know anything about their canning procedure and I wonder if this beer may be better served on draft.

Tap at brewery. Pours dark hazy orange with thick off-white head. Aroma is very caramelly, sweet malts, citrusy. Taste is rich, medium bitterness, lots of flavor. Overall, nice. drjay44 (3890) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Draft. Pours a medium, light beige head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is pine resin grapefruit peel, slight cereal, balance to the hops, no esters.....taste has very slight hints of sweetness to start, toasted malts with biscuit notes, hops with floral notes, pine citrus, grapefruit peel, finishing with moderate bitterness, balance slightly to the hops.....mouth feel medium body, slightly astringent, no alcohol. carbonation adds a pleasant tingle, and creaminess. This is a hoppy amber. The hops are unquestionably American, but are balanced back nicely by a strong malt backbone. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7 hopman303 (2) - - MAY 23, 2014 does not count
Draft at the brewery. Pretty solid offering. I’m a fan of this general style, having "grown up" craft-wise on hoppy reds. Disconnected has a piney/grapefruity aroma that carries through into the flavor. It’s balanced with strong malt character, but the sweetness lingers just a touch too long. That’s the only thing keeping me from rating this higher. JaffaHawk23 (76) - Broomfield(via Iowa City), Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2013
They even admit this is more of an IPA then an amber ale. Lots of malt/hops balance but the finish is that of a Red IPA. Very nice and bonus point for brewing this walking distance from my house. Da314man (17) - LONGMONT, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Aroma and color of a typical Red Ale and even the front part of the taste emulates a normal Red. Finishes like an IPA. Thus a great Red IPA comes from this 16oz can from the small brewery out of Broomfield Colorado.
