Taster at Flying Dog on 7/5/12. Deep red pour with white head. Big floral dank hop nose. Med body with citrus, sweet malts and light fruits. Deep bitter finish. Dry. Excellent. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Huge fan of this one. Pours dark red with white head and significant lacing. Great piney hop aroma that holds through the palate. It’s very piney. Palate is balanced by a slightly sweet maltyness that is balanced really well. Crisp clean finish. Ab3642 (15) - - NOV 4, 2012

Great red ale. Tasted at the brewery at Savor Symposium. Draft pours a nice amber color. This beer is a hop bomb! Sweetness of the malt backbone is balanced by the nice hoppy flavors of citrus (grapefruit). Draft only release. jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2012

This was a nice dark red ale. Aroma was of malts and a bit of candy. Flavor was bitter with a bit of a sour pucker but very enjoyable for the style.
