3.43/5 rDev -16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: coppery orange-red, slight haze, huge plume of off-white foam, great head retention
Aroma: strawberries, orange peel, piney hops, malt, alcohol
Flavor: malty sweet with a layer of simple syrup sugaryness; hints of toasted wheat, malted caramel, and sour milk; resiny hop flavor with a subdued bitterness that doesn't do too much to dry out the beer; finishes semisweet with a malt "lozenge" aftertaste and a bitterness at the back of the tongue/throat
Mouthfeel: full body, chewy, gentle carbonation, alcohol warmth
Other comments: I really like Lagunitas IPA and Hop Stoopid is pretty good, but the others I've tried are a bit off the mark for me. Not sure what exactly I don't like. They're too rich or something. And there's something odd in the background flavor.

I generally don't like red ales. This is an exception, by far, for me.
Beautiful pour from the bottle. Ruby mahogany color, slow moving carbonation, a little hazy. Creamy head that dissipates to a couple of millimeters slowly, but that lace will stay there forever.
The nose is one of the most inviting I've encountered in a while. Malty and bread, creamy yet crisp and herbal as well. Plum and raisin, a whole lot. Sweet burnt malt and alcohol. Give me some!
Taste is sweet and fruity at the beginning, like toasted raisin bread and malty granola. The hops really only kick in at the finish, as does the alcohol, but both combine for a bitter and clean aftertaste.
Good, real good.
