Poured a dark amber color, slight haze. Nice 2 finger, khaki colored hed. Good lacing. Nice egg-white like head.
Aroma was very citrusy and grapefruity. Lots of hops. Caramely and biscuity with some mellow sweetness.
Flavor is biscuity and caramely upfront. Good amount of maltiness helps balance the hop bitterness. Floral and citrusy hops with a grapefruit bitterness that slightly lingers. A bit grainy as well.
Body is medium with a medium carbonation level. Crisp finish.
Overall this is a great west-coast styled Red. Big hops, good maltyness with a light sweetness. Very enjoyable and one of the better Red's i've had.

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 :-)
