This was a pleasant surprise. Very hoppy nose, citrus notes dominate, particularly grapefruit. Orange/red appearance, dark thick head with much retention. Beautifully balanced hop / malt. Takes amber to a new level. Oats add body and a bit of sweetness. This one is going to get a regular spot in my fridge. Maverick34 (3299) - New York, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottled. Reddish tinged brown with white head. Sweet oats and hoppy red with juicy malt. Good. puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2012
On tap at Jimmy’s, tapped 3 days ago though relatively freshly kegged. More brown than red, unfiltered. Great body, full but not heavy, mostly dry with a decent hop character. Coffee and mild coffee. Very decent. AWISLguy (3234) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bomber from ck1, shared with (at least) him - thanks bro! Pours a murky tannish amber. Nice lacing. Aroma has fruits, caramel and some grassy hops. Taste is of sweet caramel, some orange and brown sugar. Finishes sweetly. Not a Three Floyds as we mistakenly hoped! tgncc (3136) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 22, 2014

On tap at McFaddens beer fest. Pours a nice amber with a thin head. The aroma is malty sweet with some caramel. The flavor has the typical Red aspect but is enhanced with a nice hop presence. Finishes very dry and refreshing. jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2013
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head.Light malty flavor with a quick finish. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2012
On tap at Sticky Lips BBQ in Henrietta, NY.
Clear, nearly opaque deep mahogany with thin creamy head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of pine and citrus with hints of smokey malt.
Taste is hoppy of grapefruit and pine. Caramel malt occasionally sneaks around the hops. A bit of peppery spice also comes through. Not overly bitter. Rather nice.
Medium full mouthfeel with a fine tingling carbonation.
Tasty beer. Reminds me of a black IPA, but with more of an oatmeal character.

Bottle gift from SJ. Nice notes of bread, hop, and caramel malts. Body was a bit thin, but not a bad brew overall. jcr (2719) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted grain, light pine, grapefruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Caramel and hops in the flavor. A bit more bitter than amber ales, but not a big hop display that’s promised.
