I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a reddish amber color with a decent off-white head and lacing. The aroma is hops and bready malt. The taste is bitter hops, bread, and some grapefruit peel. It was pretty smooth and creamy. This was pretty good.

On tap at P&P Charleston. Clear Amber with small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is caramel malt and some herbal hops.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Bottling date: 26 August 2015. Pours wih a dark red-brown body that’s initially covered by a good size bone-colored head. The head, however, soon reduces to a thin top coat. Very good lacing is left on the glass. Aroma: hoppy red ale Flavor: more bitter and hoppy than expected (I didn’t read the deScription first), but mild-moderate levels of each. Feel: medium body and carbonation. Overall: a Red IPA that works well as a winter seasonal.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Sampled on draft at Champs in Altoona this beer poured a dark caramel-bronze color with a large foamy orange-tan head that left exceptional lacing. The aroma was sweet and fruity with citrus and yeasty notes. The flavor was tart, tangy and sweet with lemon, caramel and an underlying bitterness. Medium length bitter and tart lemon finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

Ambra scuro con buona schiuma. Ottimo aroma di dark fruits, prugne. Bene al palato con ingresso caldo e pieno dolce con finale amaro e luppolo lungo. Molto buona.

1" off white head.. good retention and lace.. the brew is a very pretty slightly deep amber. Nose is chock full of American hops and a descent amount of caramel and a bit more toasted malt... bunches or citrus with some piney hoppiness that I can only think of as maybe Simcoe.. pretty piney. Flavor begins the same as the nose.. but with some pretty pithy citrus hoppiness.. maltiness has plenty of toast with some very lite background chocolate essence.. the hops right now are very fresh.. so the malts are playing 2nd or 3rd fiddle, but the essence is still there... the hops are a bit oily (I like) on the finish with a nice medium body and carbonation.. very inviting though not a traditional Winter Warmer.. more of a Warmer with a PNW hop kick.

hman43 (1605) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2015
It pours deep amber color with ruby tinges and a head that is full and leaves plenty of lacing. It has aromas of caramel malts, dark fruits, some grass hops, and some wood flavors. It has flavors of dark fruits that produce a sweet sensation to start the flavor with and other flavors of piney hops, grassy hop, and malts. The other effect on the palate is smooth with moderate bitterness.
