Tim's Creation and it is a good one.
A: Pours a nice amber hue with a solid off white head. Good retention and some nice chunky lace.
S: Wonderful sweet yet hoppy. Lots of caramel and toffee. Bold citrus hops with lots of earthy goodness.
T: The sweet candy malts are there up front. The back end is all about the hops though. Very aggressive without being over done. Bold citrus with strong grassy notes.
M: Medium in body, smooth, a bit dry in the finish.
D: Good Really like this one. Look forward to it's cousin...the lager version.
Serving type: on-tap

Fresh from Florida with a date of 2/18/14
A - Pours out a cloudy light red with a bunch of hop sediment flouting around. Has a two finger frothy off yellowish off white head. Well carbonated.
S - Hops come through on the nose with a piney citrus follow with a bready sweet maltiness and some earthyness.
T - Sweet malt breadiness, caramel, followed by the piny citrus earthyness that drys out. Balanced from malts to hops and pretty smooth and enjoyable.
M - Medium to full bodied smooth with nice carbonation. Dry on the mouth leaving you wanting more.
O - Very enjoyable red ale that is balance with pronounce malt and hop profiles. Not a beginner beer for a red ale coming in at over 7 % abv.

Disclaimer: I've mostly been on a hop kick with IPAs & DIPAs.
However, this was an excellent red ale. Fantastic smell and with great mouth feel and taste.
Found a 6-er of this 3 days old and figured I would finally try it...glad I did.
A refreshing ale and a good benchmark for this style, though I'm not that prevalent in this style currently.
