A friend picked this up for me from the brewery. Beautiful clear mahogany pour with a two finger beige head with great retention and lacing. The nose is bold and piney with hints of toffee, caramel, blood orange, and perfumey hops. The taste is bold as well with tons of perfumey, floral hops along with hints of pine, toffee, caramel, blood orange, and subtle grapefruit. The mouthfeel is smooth with a subtle creaminess and a great bitter, hoppy finish. The drinkability is off the charts and the balance is perfect. Overall, one of the best Red Ales I've tasted!

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great retention. Tastes of hops, floral hops, sweet malt, slight caramel malt, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, hint of biscuit, and slight hops oils. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of pale malt, hint of roasted malt, slight earthy malt, hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, body, aroma, and blend.
