Pours a burnished red colour, furious bead on the sides. Big, generous head - fluffy with sticky lace. Nice.
Smells awesome, loads of resinous floral hop notes. Rosewater, musk, citrus, pine bark and a touch of raspberry. Ooh yeah that makes me want to drink up, for sure.
Loads of malt underlying, very nutty with hop resins early. Citrus pith and pine resin, lots of sharp oils and acid. Quite a lot of floral late-hopping character to counterbalance, so it's alright, but no denying it is very sharp. Beautiful sweet malt underneath though and a touch of alcohol heat. Pleasant.
Undeniable alcohol heat. Nice, full texture but a very big hop pull.
Pleasant big hoppy red ale. I think one of the best I've had from the east coast, and not just because the hops are very west coast in character. It's because it packs a big malty punch under it all, showing it has respect for the power of the hops it's using. Great job.

4/5 rDev -1.5%

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bomber.
Pours a nice dark amber color its almost a muddy brown. There is a nice ecru light eggshell white color. Nice sticky lacing as the brew goes down.
Aroma is of pungent grassy hops. SOme slight grapefruit and tangerine citrus notes are present from the alpha acids. However the nice thick rich malt body is very well profiled in the nose with notes of caramel.
Flavor starts off with strong caramel notes. Malty notes a-plenty with a delicious and enticing spicy hop backbone. Notes of citrus and dank flowery notes are present. The brew is pretty robust both on the grain and the hops. Nice crisp mouthfeel with notes of resinous hops and a sticky yet bitter dryness.
