Personal Review:
Need someone to cuddle with? Cozy on up to this malty masterpiece. This red ale is a bit of a rebel, but it has a soft spot. It defies a category of beer filled with generic, overly malty brews, and spices things up with some dry-hops (Palisade and Zythos). One sip and you’ll feel safe in the company of this brew. It will patiently listen to your worries and when you’re done venting, it will give you a light smack on the cheek to knock you out if it.

 

Technical Review:
This beer poursĀ a slightly cloudy, amber color with a surprisingly white head in comparison to the color of the beer.
The aroma is sweet and fruity with hints of citrus accented with biscuit notes.
The mouthfeel is smooth with just a slight thickness.
The taste compliments the aroma. It is sweet with a slight biscuit flavor. You will also notice an apricot fruitiness.

The initial taste steps aside to reveal a nice finish. The finish is light and crisp with an inviting citrus flavor that perfectly follows slightly heavy malt body.
