2.83/5  rDev -29.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

12oz bottle poured into a Harpoon IPA stange. Top right edge of label stamped 12 01 11.

Appearance - Medium dark brown body. Big rocky offwhite head with good retention and low stick.

Smell - Hop heavy at first, before the chocolate malt brings it back down to earth. Great presence and balance of hop and malt.

Taste - A little hop forward. Could cut back a little. Or maybe add more malt. Too tannic, alcoholic, and bitter. I take back what I said earlier... this definitely needs much more malt presence.

Mouthfeel - Astringency kills it. Medium bodied. Can't really get a feel for the carbonation, if any, because the astringency is overpowering.

Overall Drinkability - Really disappointed on this one. Hopefully it was just a bad batch, because I can's see anyone putting this out on the market. Even Budweiser American Ale is leaps and bounds more enjoyable.

New Mexico, to Tempe, to Orange County. I didn't realize that I had bought two bottles (one from two different stores) when I brought my $120 beer haul to California. Here's 12 ounces, and on to the beer:

Red...dark red colored. So dark that it looks crimson. A low head is formed on the head with just a few dots of lace sticking to the glass. The aroma at first has a touch of dry cardboard. Much of that clears up and underneath comes a pleasing hop aroma, pine, esters, passionfruit, and toasted sugar in small doses. Complex indeed. More hop forward than malt is the aroma, so there is some irony to taste a beer that's more malty than hoppy. Malty, fruity, toffee. Soft hop leaves and tea help diversify this red ale. Somewhat bitter like many IPA's, but sweeter. A bittersweet flavor lingers in its aftertaste of this medium bodied, low carbonated beer.

Yes, I like this one. Now I'm glad that I "accidently" bought a second bottle :-)
