Nice little hoppy red siding more with being a session beer then the red IPAs that have shown up all over the place. Sweet citrus hop nose. Caramel and slightly fruity body with a very crisp hop finish. Not overly bitter or overpowered with hops, more balanced and drinkable. I really enjoyed this beer, would be great as a new bottled release. SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2007
Draft at Portland spring beer and wine fest. Pours a Red/brown hazy color. 1 finger white head. Not a lot of aroma. Flavor starts off with a lot of toasty caramel mats and finishes with hops. Not a lot of bitterness but a great citrusy fresh hop finish. Somewhat crisp at the end. Will be a really good refreshing summer beer. Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 6, 2007
On Tap at Hollingsheads, Orange, Ca. Poured a nice amber color, with decent sized head. Plenty of hops in this one, might have been better with a bit less, to focus on the malt, overall a solid brew. kyzr (1545) - Montana, USA - APR 5, 2007
Amber in color with average sized off brown head. Nice notes of fruit with some carmalized sugar. Toasty and malty up front then the hops start to take over. Finish is dry and clean. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2007
Very interesting slightly cloudy red brown. Nice head form and formation. Farily fruity with some dark toffee notes. Has a very woody/earthy hops aroma. Fairly dry body with nuttiness, banana, and and mostly crystal malt backdrop with a touch of roasted malt thrown in. Finishes moderately bitter, with a slight bit of astingentness.

Bottle. Light garnet color with a frothy ivory head. Somewhat malty aroma with an almost Belgian yeast dynamic. Very estery with slight banana notes. Dusty and dry. Hoppy but not excessively bitter. Caramel maltiness with tome toffee notes. Very dry finish.
