A little boozy but the name tells no lies. It's sticky red and hop forward. It'll warm you up going down. There are better in this style but if you like ballast point then this is worthy of a pick up.

Pours a nice red color. Nose is all hops. Taste is hop on the front with a malty finish. Not too boozy for a double digit ABV. Very good.
