3.78/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
1pt 6fl oz Bottle
Look: Lovely dark ruby that has some light shine through and a great head with plenty of retention. Ample lacing. Fantastic red
Smell: Sweet malt, piney goodness and a touch of bitterness. The malt and piney are the strongest smells
Taste: Strong malt with an almost biting pine final taste. Citrus follows the pine(grapefruit) The Grapefruit...is a bit to much for my preference personally but it is a good beer.
Mouthfeel: Thick sticky malt lingers but so does that damn pine.
Drinkability: Very drinkable but due to alcohol, and general taste, not sure how many I could enjoy in a night. Still....I will buy again no question

22 oz bottle.
Into a pint glass:
A: rich malty red looking body with a huge lumpy foamy white head that rises above the pint glass and once it dies after a good minute it sinks to a valley of lumpy white goodness
S: mainly caramel malts, some bitterness but to me it seems like its just bitterness for the sake of bitterness, (I wish Ninkasi would put dates on their bottles)
T: dried caramel malty flavoring - to me this doesn't really show much in the taste; super dry caramel aftertaste that leads to a very dry finish
M: medium on the body, wants to be sessionable but not really a sipper - just an interesting Amber/Red ale, carbonation is fairly smooth as there's nothing harsh on my tongue or mouth and its decent for the style and for me
O: this is basically just a bit above average American Amber/Red Ale, maybe only seek again on tap or fresher

3.71/5 rDev -2.4%

On tap at The Glendale Tap in Glendale, CA.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a better hop presence in the taste.
