Reddish amber body, okay looks. Bit dusty for the style, toasty but underhopped for my preference. Drinks well but quite watery for the abv. Not terribly complex in development but okay in quaffable appeal. It’s okay after the poor aroma. (On tap at the restaurant) rouhlas (3665) - GREECE - FEB 24, 2017
From tap at the brewpub. Almost clear amber orange copper color with off white head. Malty and hoppy aroma, caramel, bread, grass, pine. SWeet and bitter taste. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation. mR_fr0g (12923) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Reddy / orange / amber with a lasting frothy off white head. Aroma is nice brown bread nutty malts, pine, toast. Flavour is composed of grain husks, nutty malts, pine, needle, toast, hints of citrus. A bit rough round the edges. Palate is semi sweet, medium bodied, moderate carbonation. epeter85 (54) - - DEC 6, 2014
On tap at Jupiter in Berkeley. Pours dark Amber with a creamy head. Smell of hops but taste is not overwhelming. A nice mix of an amber ipa. This brewery has some winners.

Red-amber color with a nice foamy head and lots of lace. Pine and raisin aroma. Nicely balanced bitterness, and just a bit astringent. Very good. Somewhere in between an amber and an IPA, but I feel like I’ve had a billion of these lately, and very few stand out.

"Poured at Drakes (as their beer, what the hell?). Very nice hoppy red ale, ample sweetness and caramel malts followed by a swift hop kick to the head...citric and bitter. Very good."

On tap @ Jupiter. Pours amber in color with an off-white head. The nose is caramel malt, some fruit, and toasted bread. A bit of floral hops, earth, and some fruity sweetness. The flavor is pleasantly sweet with just a mild bitterness. A lot of caramel, toast, and bread. Some earth, floral hops, and a light fruit ester character. jtclockwork (16951) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Draft. Pours amber with white head. Nose and taste is mostly malt with touch of pine and grass. Medium body. monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2013
A decent red. Pours a nice clear copper color with a tan head. Smells great, like vanilla and nuts. Taste however is a little more bitter then expected. Hoppy right at the start. Had on tap at the brewery.

On tap at the source. A creamy, just off-white head that leaves good lace covers the mostly clear red to amber body. Aromas are fruity, estery, caramel, light nutty notes, some hop aromas of pine and citrus. Flavors are bitter, fruity, dry and a bit papery. Assertively bitter, light hops and esters. Lively bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.
