Slightly hazed, red with a bit of an orange hue. Short, dense cap of fine tan bubbles. A good amount of sticky lacing, decent head retention. Piney hop aroma, caramel malt and some citrus, earthy. Bitterness was sharp and earthy, and lingered in the finish. Some caramel sweetness, herbal with a bit of pine. Moderate carbonation, medium body, a bit creamy in texture. Good overall.

Amber red color with a thick one finger off-white head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of American yeast, biscuit malt, caramel, earthy hops, pine and flowers.
Pleasant flavor with notes of American yeast, caramels, citrus, pine, spices, cocoa, roasted and toasted malts, earth and a hint of nuts and iced tea. Dry and bitter aftertaste. It doesn’t feel like 50 IBUs, maybe given it is quite malty.
Medium body with good carbonation
I preferred it to be less malty, though it is still a good beer that I liked. After warming up felt to me like sweetened iced tea.

This was a pretty decent beer. The flavor was better when the beer was cold. Most beers, should be cool; but this one was better COLD. Not bad, I really don't have anything bad to say about it.
The red smells appetizing, and pours well. There was little head formed.
