Pours a hazy brown with a reddish/copper tinge, medium sized off white head and a ton of lace. Aroma is earthy, caramel, pine, perfumy, sweet, and faint alcohol. Flavour is caramel, sweet maltiness, medium bitterness(slightly astringent), earthy, light alcohol, resin and pine. cfrancis (3512) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Thanks to Reimer for this. I’m a sucker for this type of beer, so right up my alley. Pours dirty reddish brown with a big frothy beige head. Aroma is intense caramel and rich pine and earthy hop bitterness. Taste is rich velvet caramel with a great balance of pine and earthy hops from the cascade.

Bottle, shared with Robbie post-RBAG 2014. Deep red-orange hue, thick light gold head. Ripe tropical fruit and sweet malts, nice thick hop profile. If you like this style, this is quite good; but if you’re not a fan of red IPAs then this won’t win you over. The finish is moderately bitter, and this sweetness is not too over-the-top. More drinkable than Mission Carrack, which is a very similar brew. Interesting to see the wide range of opinions here, but I liked it more than I expected to. jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
It pours a clear, reddish amber body under a dense, small, light beige head. Resiny and piney nose with lots of maltyness and some caramel roastyness. Sugar, caramel and maltyness in the flavor, as well as pine cones and resin. Bitter and sweet. Full-bodied and almost sticky, as well as almost astringent from the hops.

Bottle - Earthy hops and light coffee. Clear copper with a beige head. Rich caramel malts, syrupy and rich finish. Pretty nice.

Not a big fan. Did not finish 2nd half. Regular Ruby is perhaps the nicest P49 beers I have had so had some interest despite the big ABV. Came across like strong cough syrup. Think, boozy and not particularly tasty. VertBaconStrips (2392) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - APR 30, 2014
Clean slate. Clean slate. Convincing mind that this ain’t a 49. Aaaaaaaand go. Thick malts, caramel, muted berries and molasses, some Christmas candy or baked treat with maraschino cherries, toffee or fudge or something, zest. The intensity of LA v SJ game 7 in the first round is thick. This has gone straight to my smart thingy. Smells more like a poorly made hoppy barleywine. I don’t think this is poorly made so don’t panic, homers. The taste reminds me of the same. Quite malty. The bitterness is up there but can’t hold up to the kitchen sink of flavours. At least that’s what it reminds me of. This isn’t a deep thinker. Smooth less than sweet caramel, background pine and wisps of alcohol (wisps of wisps), orange, pine, pepper zip, thick. Thick is today’s theme. Ok feel. Kind of a lost beer. Works. Head starting to feel like I did a bunch of shots at the bar. Can’t say that I don’t enjoy ASA’s though.

Amber-red, aroma is sweetish, caramel, limey, papaya, chewy front, sweet, a bit boozy late. Strong but a bit husky and a bit rough. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2014

Dark amber color, clear, with beautiful light, and generous creamy head. Nice aroma, with caramel and hops, lightly nutty and creamy. Smooth and round mouthfeel; the flavor is moderately sweet, there is caramel, a touch of fudge, sweet nuts, light creamy impression, very light phenol; maybe an impression of crystal malt too; correct bitterness, with a balanced blend of hop fruitiness and resins. Medium final, more delicate than other beers in this category.
Not overly exciting, but it’s a solid and clean offer.
2014-04-05, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 6-5-7-4-12=34
Hazy amber color with creamy persistent head. Mild aroma, some malt and very light phenol; then some lemon tart. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is better defined as smooth than round; caramellish flavor, lightly nutty, with light phenols and Band-Aid; strong bitterness with a fruity contribution.
Powerful but rather purposeless.
Sample at the Edmonton beer feet. I enjoyed this one. Mostly malty with some hop presence alcohol well masked. Enjoyable.
