Bought a six-pack at Table and Vine in West Springfield, MA. Beer poured with a nice amber appearance with medium retention and decent lacing. Aromas had an initial hint of caramel and malts, while subsequent breaths brought up smells of wood and bread. Flavors definitely highlighted the bread with some malt and sweet citrus. Great mouthfeel; really liked the carbonation, which helped make the drink really refreshing to drink. A very great beer and a pleasure for the evening,.

This brew pours a dark red/plum color with a two finger frothy tan head. The head lasts several minuets and some of it remains on the top of the brew until the end. Good lacing.

The smell is nutty, bready, caramel like along with piney hops.

The taste is hop forward with piney hops dominating, there is some grapefruit taste as well. Caramel and roasted hops come in in the middle then there is a piney and grapefruit hop finish. Some hop oil remains on the tongue after swallowing.

The mouthfeel is thick and chewy. There is a little bite from the hops; a slightly dry taste is left in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall this is a good well balanced ale. A hop forward Red Ale with a malt backbone. It is definitely worth trying.
