Bottle picked up in Las Cruces at Kelly Liquors. Straight from the bottle after a hot, windy, dry run. Huge aroma of sappy, resiny pine with a hint of sweet malt. Nice mildly bitter flavor that keeps it a nice amber ale and not over-the-top into IPA-land. Nice and refreshing. CopterScott (254) - Kansas, USA - MAY 27, 2015
reddish amber color with about a finger of off-white head. aroma citrus hops and caramel malts. flavor is citrus, caramel and toast. High_in_NM (29) - Los Alamos NM, New Mexico, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle from local Smith’s. Wow! Not what I was expecting at all. Pronounced hop profile announced itself as soon as the cap came off. Dark copper pour, medium off-white head, and moderate carbonation. Caramel malts are pretty much buried under a very dry, IPA-ish hop profile. It’s labeled as a red ale rather than an amber, but it tastes like a red IPA to me, which ain’t a bad thing as far as I’m concerned. A pleasant surprise. I’ll definitely be buying more of this. jagad5 (89) - - MAR 6, 2015
Nothing to write home about. A bit of a sweet and bitter initial taste that complimented the local cuisine. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish brown color with a very small off-white head on there. Nose is quite hoppy... there is some caramel to it, but a lot of grass and some floral notes to it. Taste is slightly bitter, and comes with a malty bite that has a residual sweetness. Really interesting...

Deep orange-brown pour with a modest head. Nose brings some of the metallics that previous raters were glad not to detect, along with spicy pine. The flavor is a very fine balance of c-hop drive with sweetish caramel malt backing. Prickly mouthfeel from the abundant carbonation. This (hoppy American red ale) is not a style that I tend to enjoy, but I rather enjoyed this one. It has to be once of the nicest red ales I’ve had.
Pours deep red caramel with a creamy head. Big fresh hop aromas of pine, grass, peach, caramel and apricot. Big upfront apricot taste with light peach, pine and a balence of caramel. Medium sweet and bitter. Very good beer with a good hop punch. JK (6160) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Good malt and hops. Sweet, like hop juice. sweet, sticky finish. Good palate and tons of flavor for the style. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2014

>> Chill hazed, deep red tea pour with yellowish foam. Okay retention. Nose is pine, tea, dark bread. Taste is almost all tea leaf, amber tea, bitter unsweetened tea. Tannic, bitter, tea finish. Eh.
