I think this May be abad bottle musty aroma not enjoyable. Nice head hop then leather like flavor. Good mouthfeel. Overall I hope this was an off bottle. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 28, 2013
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber/ruby with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, a little spice, and some floral and almost citrusy hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but still a red ale maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 23, 2013

Nice tasting red with fruity notes and fine bitter finish. Balanced level of alcohol so that taste isn’t overpowered. Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep, red amber with fine, light khaki head. Decent retention, settles to thin cap, with some thin lacing. Aroma is hoppy, mild resin, with a nice, sweet malt background. Flavor is hoppy up front, fairly resinous and oily, fading into a subtle malt finish, slight nutty and toffee. Quite hop forward, even for the style, probably why it has rated so highly, damn hopheads! Moderate to strong carbonation, with a medium body, and crisp texture. A tasty, hoppy amber ale, quite good. mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Let’s be clear; this is a red IPA. I know, it’s not pale so, IRA? Really nice clean reddish-brown color. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose with only a little onion. Much better carmel malt characteristics than most. Wonderful hop flowery flavors and bitter finish with more pine resin. There’s really no such thing as a ’red ale" style. Even so, this is the best Red Ale I’ve had. Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Nice reddish pour with some head. Aroma is slightly underpowered but has notes of piney hops and malty undertones. Taste is a solid malt foundation with some sweet and toasty smooth character, which is punctuated by a piney, slightly bitter hop flavor. Finishes smooth and clean. Balanced. Really quite refreshing and the hop elements adds to the overall flavor profile and drinkability. Certainly one of the better "red ales." Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, pine, earthiness, and grapefruit zest. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, pine, grapefruit and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering bitter pine finish.
