Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Real nice looker here. Copper red amber, fairly clear with brown and orange hues for the body. Head is a big four fingers and settles to a whipped foamy texture with small swiss cheese bubbles and big retention. Head is off yellow and white in color. Real classic amber.
Nose is warm weathering fresh grapefruit hop presence. A little bit of grass and sweet malts hide in the background. Fairly basic but very enjoyable.
First sip brings a great rush of mushy grapefruit, and tropical melon. Balances and finishes with sweet malts and more grapefruit hop bitterneess. Clean and malt dense rich. Hardly boozy hot at all but with a minor warmth that is noticeable.
Overall just a solid impressive great tasting and real easy drinking amber ale.

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.
