This is a pretty decent amber. Somewhat woody and earthy sweetness. Kind of leafy tone going on. It carries a good profile in the sense that it is solid and consistent, but not trying to be overly boisterous about things. Smooth feel. Fairly easy to drink. Could use the edges smoothed out a good bit really.

Growler poured into DFH pint glass. Glad to see bulkhead back into the mix. I believe they changed the recipe since last time I've had it.
Nice dark amber color. Red when held to the light.
Biscuity toasty malt quickly followed by hoppy resin, pine and citrus aromas.
Taste is very similar to the smell but is a bit more hoppy.
Medium bodied, well carbonated, decent bitterness.
Another solid offering from my favorite brewery in Long Island.

From 07/05/12 notes. Had on tap at The Pony Bar in NY on the UES. Served in a pint glass.
a - Pours a murky reddish brown color with two inches of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head has long retention and lasts for a few minutes.
s - Smells of caramel malts, toasted malts, fruity malts, and bready malts. Nice nose; very malty though. The menu mentioned it being a very hoppy red ale but I'm not getting much hops in the nose at all.
t - Tastes of lots of pine hops, fruity malts, resin, caramel malts, toasted malts, and bready malts. Taste has a ton of the hops that were promised in the description, and is much better than the nose. Very nice.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. No bitterness and easy to drink.
o - Overall this is a pretty good red ale. The nose is good but malty, and the taste is great and more like an IPA. Easy to drink, would certainly try it again.
