Pours reddish brown with an off-white head. Aroma is slight pine hop. Very lively on tongue with caramel malt notes. Nice hop and alcohol bite in the finish. Good stuff. drowland (8955) - Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2012
8/7/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Dark brown pour, clear red under the light, with a nice khaki head that fades but laces a ton. Floral and slightly piney hop aroma with earthiness and caramel. The flavor matches but with a more perfumey hop presence and lots of chocolate. Not bad. harrisoni (19189) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012

Beer Camp mix pack 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention and nice lacing. Aroma of toffee malts with spicy, citrus hops. The taste is bitter resin hops with a faint toffee malt finish. Medium bodied. A little one-note but not bad. arkurzynski (2456) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Deep red-brown with slightly off-white head and tons of lacing. Sticky grapefruit and pine with aromatic toasted malt and light caramel. Flavor dank grapefruit, tropical melon, pine, and sticky caramel and toasted malt in the finish. Well-played, flavorful ale.

Bottled. Poured clear light-medium amber with a well-retained, creamy beige head.. looked great in the glass. The aroma picked up spicy grapefruit and pine resin over soft biscuit and nutty notes.. fresh earthy yeast made a presence and was complementary.. very nice. The flavor found darker fruit as well as chewy bread and biscuity notes at the core.. fresh pine, peppery notes, and grapefruit bitterness around.. finished warm with mostly pine bitterness over bread and fruity malts. Medium-bodied with a creamy feel through the palate.. rolling carbonation.. smooth, tasty, and well-balanced. emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a very sharp and clean copper ruby red with two fingers of sticky yellowish tan head. Nose is piney with some grain husk coming through, smells like a little roasted barley. Lots of grapefruit rind (no melon or peach.....) and a light floral quality. Slightly resinous. Kind of sharp in the mouth, definitely an aggressive bitterness. Peanut hull (to me) character, grain husk thing going on. Medium body, little bit of warmth. A bit scattered but nice enough. LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Pours a very clear but deep red-amber with a small creamy head. Mild malt aroma. Slight roasted caramel flavor, but also some good hops in there. Medium bodied. A decent effort, and a good red ale. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2012
12 oz bottle, 2012 Beer Camp Variety Pack, from Whole Foods Milwaukee. Pours a deep, reddish-brown color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hops, citrus, grapefruit. medium on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, grapefruit, caramel malt, a little roasty, with a light bitter finish. Very interesting. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours a deep rusty ruby red with a two finger off white head that slides away fairly quickly. Aromas are honeyed malts, grapefruit and a touch of earthy spice. On the palate its a malt bomb with touches of fruity hops and rustic spices. Not a big red ale fan but a decent example for sure.
