Red-amber with big, foamy beige head / Big nose of fresh cut pine and weed / Medium body, chewy with sharp, biting hops and long finish / Flavors of fresh cut pine, weed, resin, grapefruit, and burnt sugar / Perfect, but no amber ale. It’s an IPA. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Fabulous beer! Big, hoppy, malty, grainy, sweet, delicious. If there were no other beers left in the world but this one. I would be perfectly happy with it. It’s that good. jaysocal (4) - - APR 16, 2014 does not count
I love it, a new favorite. You need to try this beer. Very tasty, and refreshing...... JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Green Christmas tree aroma is off the charts! Delightfully clear reddish amber in color with a thick head and oozing lace. Lots of caramel sweetness and crystal malts to balance the green hoppiness. Somewhat creamy. Resinous finish. It’s like the beer gods are smiling on me.

Perfect red IPA. I really don’t have much else to say except that if you try it you may just stick with it forever. Awesome! No dings...but saved room in rating in case I find a better one...doubt it though jbarry1506 (28) - Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Wow. This beer makes me hoppy (lol). I didn’t see the pour, so I can’t say anything about that. What I can say is, when I took my first sip, I smiled . . . a big hoppy smile. The color is like a lovely redhead with a touch of auburn. Not much in the way of head, but lots of grapefruit in the flavor. I would definitely have this again. Maybe paired with mahi-mahi with lime? Mtbiker54 (39) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 6, 2013
Une belle bière rouge ambrée. Un juste équilibre entre arômes maltés et houblons. Le dry hop à l’amarillo apporte de belles touches d’agrumes. Une très belle réalisation! Hollywoodbeer (2) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014 does not count
Great hoppy and herbaceous aroma. Appealing red color. Fruity flavors with generous hops. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Tasted at the Brewery in Vista, CA--Rich amber body with a bold, frothy whitish head. Floral hop aroma. More floral than bitter. Well built. One of the best beers to date!
