Bomber to snifter, bottled March 22nd
Pours a very dark copper with some nice red hues in the middle of the glass. Two fingers of foam have receded to a half finger and left behind some lice lacing. Moderate carbonation stemming from the center, good visibility, maybe a touch of cloud in the middle. Looks pretty good, a bit light for a red , though
Smells of strong citrus and floral hops, very spicy and resinous. Big sweet caramel grains, some pine and earthiness, honey and a finish of alcohol. Hops and the malts come together really well, spicy and sweet with toasted malt
Taste is upfront piney hops, underscored by a strong lasting grapefruit. Caramel malts compose a good foundation giving it a sweet and toasted lining. Not as rich and big in the mouth as the nose, but still highly enjoyable
Feel is a nice moderate body with a spicy kick. Mildly carbonated, finishes a bit wet with some good bitterness. Alcohol is well concealed, very drinkable
Overall an amazing beer for the price. I think I like the .alt version better, but would recommend this one to pretty much anyone

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.
