Bottle from Brewdog.
Dark Amber, single finger head. Toasty malts on the nose. Same on the taste, caramel, biscuit...not much more, average beer. AshtonMcCobb (6898) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from the Red Squirrel.
Appearance - amber but redder with a nice creamy head.
Nose - dried orange and cake mixture. Dark bread background thing.
Taste - rye bread with orange segments and perhaps a bit of honey.
Palate - medium bodied with a big crunchy texture that reminds me of a rye ale.
Overall - a well balanced red ale. I’d say this is in rhe wrong category and should possibly be somewhere between an amber and an Irish red ale. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft at the brewpub in Seattle.
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with a two finger frothy off-white head that very slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. Glass is left costed with soapy lacing.
Toasted malt aroma with very faint floral hops. There’s also a good bit of sweetness with hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit countering the toasted malt and grassy hops.
On the lighter end of medium bodied with a decent balance of floral, earthy hops and sweet malt notes. Subtle spiciness from the hops along with some dry pine which is countered by hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit. Well balanced session beer but nothing out of the ordinary.

Sampled at WCBF with brother bob. A good, but very average ale. The one thing I did like was the nut and roasted malt blend. A mild but blended hop presence with a splash of wheat and caramel malt. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2010

Dog & pony, renton WA. Pours copper and clear, aroma is sweet pine and grapefruit. A decent pale, nothing to write home about.... Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Light orange pour with a small head. Not very red for a red ale. This wasn’t bad, but I found it to be very forgettable. Lightly sweet, biscuity malt balanced by american citrus hops. Really didn’t stick in my head or distinguish itself. Tasted and looked more like a pale ale than a red. Zeswaft (1780) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 I listen to show every day on my way home from work. I also enjoy most Elysian beers. I didn’t think this was much different than other elysian one off pale ales. Come to think of it probably the same as the ESB. Moderately hoppy and well balanced.

Light amber in color, good hops and malt aroma. Nice easy drinking beer. Great name and a great dry finish. A great session brew.
Bronze with a decent 1.5" thick beige head. Floral hop nose, clean and freshness that indicates Cascades though I do not see it on the ingredient list. Easy drinking IPA that starts with clean floral flavors, that are so clean, in fact, that they develop a slight soapiness. Solid crystal malt backbone with some wet shoe developing. Estery finish. Ok.
