look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. No bottling date marked.
Appearance: Pours a deep brownish amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big four finger off white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: An assertive hoppy aroma with lots of balancing sweet caramel malts. A spicy smell of herbal, earthy, and grassy hops with some pine resin. Hints of citrus orange peel, tangerine, lemon, and grapefruit. Big malt presence with hints of sweet caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, and yeast. Fairly damp smelling with a good balance of hops and malts. Solid aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a bold and well balanced taste of hops and sweet toasty malts. Earthy, grassy, and herbal hops up front with some spicy pine resin. Notes of citrus orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine. Solid bready balance with toasted malts giving a taste of sweet caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Strikes a really good balance between the spicy and bitter hops and the sweet malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, chewy, and very smooth.
Overall: A very good hopped up Red Ale. Kind of reminds me of Great Lakes Nosferatu. Bold hops with a big malty backing.
Serving type: bottle
