this is a pretty beer.
nice tight bubbles form a good light-tannish head that retains pretty well... nice amber/red hue....
taste is hoppier than I expected, but in a good way... slight choco from the malt is thin out by the hoppy finish and a clear lack of that usual red metallicness(I know not a word)... but usually these red taste like the inside of a metal pail....
this beer is really good... it's not overdone in any way.. very drinkable...
Especially considering this isn't my favorite style. A little safer than say 'Retro Red', but it's also a little better quality...
I will revisit this.
You need only to look at this beer through your glass... see the bubbles, the viscosity, the color.. to see that it is very, very high quality... alrt Marble... now I wanna try some darker styles, and some 'out of the box' entries from this brewery...
d'u hear that?

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 :-)
