Nice red amber color. Complex, flavorful and interesting - but easy enough to drink a few. Very balanced flavor from start to finish and nice aroma. Prominent earthy hoppy taste probably not for light beer drinkers, but will please both malt and hops fans alike - neither are too overpowering.

Medium body. Slightly bitter start. Light golden color. Looks like a bud!

Decent red ale. Goes down smooth, coppery red in color. Consistent taste start to finish.

Good overall balance, unfortunately I had an Eliot Ness proceeding this. Light hop flavor, excellent balance, very smooth from the bottle.

I tasted one alongside a Commodore Perry and they seemed nearly identical; both great IPAs.

Pleasing red ale, not too hoppy, just a hint of sweetness.

Perfect balance of malt and hops. One of my favorite American Amber/Red Ales!

Good bitter flavor but easier than an IPA, solid choice, yummy

A lightly balanced amber color. The honey-biscuit flavor is obvious and overpowering as with every amber style ale, yet this one brings its own unique, fruity and hoppy flavor. Its grainy, ambiguously sweet and bitter taste is absolutely delicious. This is a complex ale that should not be underestimated. It is easy to drink and goes well with any meal that comes to my mind.
