Cybercat (5558) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a mahogany tone and a little bit of a buff head. Aroma has a strong overtone of evergreen hops, more like an IPA, with subtle fruity and malty notes. Hoppy flavor is not too fierce, not bitter, but still evergreen and malty and a little fruity. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy. Get loopy - but not too loopy!

22oz bottle in shaker. Pours brownish copper with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, a little oats, and citrusy hops. Flavor about the same with an interesting blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

superspak (5303) - Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, apple, caramel, biscuit, oats, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, pear, caramel, biscuit, toffee, oats, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, pear, caramel, biscuit, oats, toffee, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bulk_Carrier (4999) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a mahogany colored body that leaves a one finger white foamy head that concaves into the body within about twenty seconds. The smell is based around some citrus and floral yet somewhat sweet hops. Some light malty oatiness comes out as the beer warms. The taste takes the smells and adds a nice sweet yet somewhat bitterness. The palate sits about a medium sort of feel indicating a great balance of wateriness to thickness. This is fairly sessionable. Overall, though the beer has some nice qualities that are different for the style, it is still good for the style and good enough for me to have some more.

chinchill (4749) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Undated but just purchased 12 oz bottle. This is first and foremost a hoppy red ale with no clear sign of oatmeal although it may contribute to the relatively smooth feel. Moderately bitter with plenty of tropical fruit notes and some spiciness from the hops. The hops seem more earthy and herbal and less fruity in the nose. Lingering, moderately bitter, hoppy aftertaste.
