Clear, deep amber body, with a head that disappeared way too fast. Aromas of citrus and malt. The flavor profile contained too much citrus hop for this style, but that seems to be a trademark of many beers from the Northwest. In my opinion, this beer needs a heftier dose of malt. Also, this beer needs some more weight, as it seems far too watery to be a winter warmer. It gets better as it works its way to room temp, though, so you may want to wait before being too judgemental. All in all, there are finer winter beers available, so I think Ill pass on this one the next time.

This is one of those beers that you are sitting around waiting for it to get cold again so you can partake.

Pours a red-amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Flavor is along the same lines, with some caramel and a light bitterness in the finish.

From bottle into english pint glass. Low head retention, but it hung in there. The frrst thing I noticed about this was a crisp grassy hop aroma. (This may have been relative because previously I had been drinking a homebrew hopped minimally with Fuggles). The actual flavor was more malty than hoppy. Slightly warming.

Dark brown with a very strong roast flavor. Just bitter enough and pretty enjoyable.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Strong malty scent. Malt is the dominant flavor as well but not as strong as in the scent. Some nice spices, too. Palate is decently thick, pleasant aftertaste. Another solid, underrated offering from Redhook.

A good beer with a pale-ale flavor. red-orange color with a small head. Hints of citrus. Pretty good, and even better because I got it on special. As for strong ales, I still prefer Eye of the Hawk Ale.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Metallic aroma some hops present. Pretty amber color. Well carbonated thick fluffy head. Some citrus in the flavor a little bitter in the finish. The palate is rather dry and unappealing.

On tap. Pours a reasonably clear amber brown with a thin beige head and great lacing. Aroma is woodsy. Flavor is a well balanced mix of malt and hops. A bit smokey. Aftertaste lingers and is medium in bitterness.
