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.
