Has the kind of balance between malts and hops that make Dogfish Head IPAs so great. Light to the nose. Some pine I’d say. Dark amber with thick head when I poured it. Truly enjoyed it.
12 ounce bottle. Hazy Amber orange topped by a small creamy beige head. Toasted malt nose hints at spicy hops. Crisp toasted malt flavor has astringent, spicy, burnt sugar and roasted nut notes. Peppery hop finish. Dry aftertaste. Itzjerm (2959) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Aroma comes through solid red ale. Taste is a bit less than expected. Medium body lots of carb. A decent red IPA. Not bad. But average and enjoyable.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Best by 3/4/2017. Pours hazy pale amber with a soapy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, floral notes. Taste is citrus, caramel, pine notes, herbs. Not bad. eRock_2013 (475) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2017
Going on memory for this review; recently enjoyed a bottle of this with dinner, I recall a full ruddy red-amber hue with long-lasting white foam, aroma of fresh piney hops. More amber ale-style caramel malt in the flavor with a solid West Coast hop bitterness, notes of pine and grapefruit. Medium-bodied, smooth, and definitely worth a try! darbeer75 (911) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2017

12oz bottle - it pours a clear dark amber with a med to thick off white head. Nice aroma of pine resinous hops, citrus and bready red malts. Similar flavor of basic hop notes and amber malts. Not bad not great cheap (5913) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2017
Tap pig iron. Maroon & clear. Mild beery aroma. Farely mild initially then it tries to become like an IPA, hop bitterness sets in. Yes, an APA trying to be an IPA but never quite gets there. Medicinal finish. yespr (45869) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 6, 2017
From tap. Pours clear and golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma is fruity and slight toasted malty. Bitter, grapefruity and slight herbal hoppy. Lingering dry and solid hoppy finish. radagast83 (8137) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2017
12oz bottle. Poured a clear amber color, medium sized white head. Aroma was light citrus, touch of resin. Light boozy malt notes. Flavor was light resin hop notes, crystal malts - a touch heavy. Perfectly fine. jimhilt (2611) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 23, 2017
Pours a two-fingered white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber color - no red. Moderate pine hop nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied and flavor is pine hops, hints of sweetness with malt mostly hidden, slight bitter aftertaste. Gift - 12oz bottle.
