Light on the hops. Hardly any head. Enjoyable, yet somewhat disappointing for lack of hops. nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2012
12oz amber-tan color. Respectable off-white head..steady. While there is some faint resinous hop aroma, its pretty tame for a double or triple anything. Very grounded in malt, a decent Amber I suppose, but just not that hoppy. Balanced, yet apparent big American-style ingredient overload. The rye shows up in the finish, stealing the show. Not bad by any means, just a little more subdued and bland than I was hoping it would be. dsilvashy (26) - - JUL 22, 2012
Nice chestnut color with an overall very average aroma. Lots of beading! Smooth drink, a tasty ale, but nothing too different. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle:   Pale amber, sudsy white head, moderately sized, spotty lacing.   Musty hop nose, slight pith and citrus zest.   A bit of dull candied citrus peel on the tongue.   Certainly a hoppy Amber, and on par for a Red Ale.   Pithy on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a big one, on the hoppier side, but with enough malt base to make it interesting.   Lingering pith.

Really good, well made but the rye isnt a favorite taste of mine but really adds another layer to this red. The hops shine through and pick it up, gives a little bite and pretty good, I liked it alot

Pours a light amber, very clear with a small amount of off-white foam. Aroma consists mainly of candy-like caramel sweetness and a bit of earthy spice, tiny bit of ground coffee in the background and a little fruity ester. Flavor is somewhat underwhelming, for something advertised as being triple hopped one would expect more of a hop presence. Hops here are tame and definitely lean more toward a noble in both flavor and aroma with earthy, floral, and spicey qualities. Mouthfeel is medium and is accentuated by the sweetness that seems a bit out of balance. Compared to other strong ales and especially those that would dub themselves as being a "red ale", this one is boring and relatively lifeless. aracauna (3710) - Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
This is a very malty beer. Caramel, some nuttiness. I’m not entirely pleased with how the hops interact, however. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Draught (nitro) @ Hawthorne Hophouse. Rated on 11.07.2012olio (10694) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Aroma is sweet with fruits, peaches and honey. Flavour is hoppy with resin and some peaches. This has some hops that linger in my mouth for a long time and they do not feel nice.
