4.14/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

From a 355 ml bottle (undated) into a tulip.

A-An aggressive pour produces about one and one-half finger of light khaki head that drops to a cap after a minute then to a collar. Lacing is thick and sticky. The brew is brownish-purpleish in color and mostly clear.

S-The smell is loaded with juicy hops that provide an almost cranberry flavor, along with lightly-spiced citrus notes. The malts are pretty mild and consist of sweet, slightly caramel flavors.

T-The taste is also very hoppy with juicy citrus flavors being dominant. There is a little bit of pine-flavored bitterness, too, especially on the finish. The malts are pretty well hidden, but do provide a little bit of roasted flavor and some sweet caramel.

M-The feel is lighter and a bit thin. The carbonation is moderate...not creamy, not quite crisp.

O-This is a great, hop-forward red ale. If you want a malty Fat Tire style brew, look elsewhere, but if you are in the mood for some hops, but not quite in the mood for an IPA, this is a great choice. The feel is a bit light for my preference, but the looks, smell, and flavor are spot on.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle.

Russett copper body. Clean and clear. Two fingers of dense, khaki head. Great lacing. Candied apple malt and hops mix on the nose. Hops are piny, herbal, and citrusy.

Toasted malt up front. Caramel and fruit malt sweetness fill in. Herbal and grassy hop bitterness early on. Bitterness grows toward the finish. Becomes pinier with notes of scotch tape. Peppery notes as well. Finish is drier with lingering caramel and fruit maltiness. Medium body with a smooth, creamy feel. Very tasty red ale that shows great caramel character and balance.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a pretty reddish orange with a slight ring of head that quickly receded. Scents of citrus, tropical fruit and slight pine and caramel malt. Flavor begins with piney hops, giving way to floral hops and with a good malt backbone and slight sweetness on the finish with hints of caramel. It's a really good, IPA like flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate carbonation level that makes it smooth to drink. This is a good beer, not what I was expecting at all, far hoppier and far better than expected. Definitely worth trying.

From 12 oz bottle...poured in Maudite chalice.
Pours a copper brown with significant head.
Aroma of rye, wet hay, herbs & spices.
Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of rich malts, grassy hops, white pepper, floral hops, rye, roasty malts. Overall
quite bold and flavorful. There's an astringency but also creamy hops and malt profile.

Poured into a standard pint glass a clear medium amber color with a half finger off white head atop that was gone pretty quickly.A healthy dose of fruity hops hit ya in the nose along with caramel malt but not overly sweet smelling,the hops win out.Like the aromas a good shot of fruity hops at the onset of the palate,not bitter just lightly sweet fruitiness,light roast and caramel malt make it balanced.I like a good hopped up red and this quite good,it seems smaller than it's abv,just a slight sharpness in the mouth keeps it from being 4's across the board.
