Classic Amature miss categorizing on rate beer this is definitely a red. Pours a clear red color with an off white head and tons of lace. Aroma of citrus hops, sweet malts, slight caramel and some fruity esthers. Taste is caramel malts, citrus hops, grass and a nice smooth bitterness throughout. Excellent red with lots of hops and a solid malt backbone. Very sessionable. SnoopDoug (22) - Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2013
This is billed as being "hopped to the rafters" and that is what I disliked about it. I am too much of a Red traditionalist. brianprentiss (703) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2013
it’s a "red" but ratebeer calls it a pale ale, interesting. to me it’s definitely more red than pale. very good. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2013
From the can, earthy and malty with some nice hops in the flavor. Nice flavor profile. Tasty!

A mellow, dusty hop nose. Piney notes amongst the caramel and nutty malt flavours. Quite a bitter finish. A thick and mellow carbonation too. Session-city.

On draught at Hopworks. Piney hop aroma. Citrus hops and a slight creamy maltiness in the taste. Finishes with a soft hop bitterness. Bookseeb (137) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Appearance has an amber red color supporting a dissipating cream head and spotty lace. Smell has a sweet citric malt aroma with light floral hop. Taste again with the sweet malt married with a nice balance of hops. Mouthfeel having a medium viscous feel with good carbonation. Overall a very nice NW red. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Bottled.Slightly hazy amber colour with a mediumsized creamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruity and floral notes with some slight sweet maltyness as well. Flavour is quite bready, mildly caramelly with some citrus, mild floral and some slight resiny and wooden notes. blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, Oct. 6. Pours a deep hazy orange-amber with a creamy off-white head. Nice aroma of citrusy hops backed by caramel malt. Hoppy flavour along with caramel malt and an average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Good stuff, I quite enjoyed it, especially for a Red. fezzy (105) - California, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with impressive pillowy head retention. As the beer settled, the haze seemed to clear for a filtered look - interesting. Nose is grapefruit, pine, and a touch of sweet malt. Taste is similar, predominant in citrus and pine, with caramel malt balance. Finish is more bitter than maybe typical for an American Red; expected for and American Pale perhaps, quite mild to my IPA-ready palate. Hints of sour biscuits on the finish, too. A satisfyingly solid brew, nothing mind-blowing, but nice to drink. Not really labeled correctly as an American Red, but I see this site has taken care of that by re-classification.
