look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bottle dated 10/1/13 poured into a pint glass
A: Burnt orange color with a one-finger head
S: Grapefruit, pineapple, malt and toffee
T: Lots of toffee and caramel. Honestly some of the most I've ever tasted in a beer. This is followed by orange zest, roasted malt and tropical fruits.
M: Medium+ bodied
O: By the time I got to the end of the bottle I thought this ended up a touch sweet but overall this is a well made, tasty beer that fits the style but has its own personality and I wouldn't hesitate to drink it again

Soft red burgundy hue with a dense 'pink' head.

Gargantuan juicy aromas of oranges and grapefruit. Malt, rye, tarry pine and burnt sugar sweetness.

Pleasant sweet malt front, citrus in the middle and resinous hop numbing sensation on the tongue with rye ringing through the nasal cranium. Love the alcohol sensation that keeps this real.

Dense body, chewy and voluptuous. Great cold but I really enjoyed when it warmed up.

Real close to Green Flash Imp Red. Just freakin' delicious. This one is a Hat Trick for sure.

Pours a dark rust orange with a heavy red hue, little to no head to speak of.

Citrus, pine, earthy, just absolutely refreshing.

Citrus is quickly balanced by a caramel mealtimes and the two flavors seem to do a tango on the tongue before making there way down your esophagus.

Mouthfeel is bright, crisp, and well balanced with hop vs caramelly malt.

Overall another red ale to prove I do like red ales.
