Canned November 14th 2017.
Pours really dark red amber, massive but manageable head of slow shrinking foam.
I get pine, grapefruit, caramel malt in the smell. More bitter than sweet but there's some semblance of balance.
Starts off bitter. Pine, resin like, grapefruit citrus, mid palate comes the caramel malt, finishes with both attributes.
Slick oily on the tongue, I like the mouthfeel.
Very good Red Ale. mike67 (1302) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2018
12 oz can. Pours hazy red with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy hops dominate the palate with caramel malt and tropical fruit provide support. Finish is long and dry. Great brew. ffaoe (1051) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2018
Moderate malt aroma. Red in color with decent head. Taste is of pine, resin, and caramel malts. NikkTwist (3461) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Draft at Khyber Pass. Murky rusty brown pour with beige foam. Spicy caramel malts with piney hop resins. Interesting mix of flavors. Black Forest cake. Wicker basket. Blood orange. Cinnamon. Leather. Kale. Spruce. Dried berries. Red pepper. Has a bit of a bite. Later sips taste sweet up front. Long bitter finish. Takes a while to warm up to but worth the effort.

Can, Wine Warehouse. Pours brown with a large beige head. Aroma is pine, citrus, stone fruit. Flavor is burnt caramel, grapefruit peel, pine, resin, light floral hops. solidfunk (9795) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2017
Rust and a little carmel like old candy you found in the seat of your friends beater. Hazy amber pour with decent head. Carpet lacing. Slightly tangy finish. Tap at Boxelder. oobawa (1922) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Lovely red ale, hoppy as hell but with a mellow, rounded malt sweetness to pad the hefty bitterness that builds in the back end. Caramel, toasted bread, and hints of apple and cocoa lead to a formidable citric hop wall, grapefruit and orange adding a nice fruity balance before the pint transitions into a lingering bitter pine finish. Grows toasty and grainy, with the hops making their presence known deep into the fade. Creamy texture is to die for, while the looks are amazing, pouring a rich brown-red with a lasting off-white head and infinite lacing. Caramel, toasted grain, and citrus on the nose. Lovely pint. trapped (3866) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 11, 2017
Draught @ Albion. Hazy reddish brown with foamy beige head, faint caramel aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter caramel taste with roasted malt flavor, thin body, medium finish. Satisfying mouthfeel.
