On tap at the Draught House.

The beer pours a reddish color with a white head. The aroma is some biscuit and toffee malts with a whole lot of pine from the hops. It smells like a super-hopped red ale, which is how the bartender described it.

The flavor is very bitter, but very good. I get a lot of pine from the hops as well as some resin and some orange citrus. There is also a little bit of biscuit malt and some toffee, but the bitterness level is about medium. The beer is fairly dry and the bitterness is lingering.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I was pleasantly surprised when I finally got a chance to drink this beer. The first time around, I was told it was all out at a local bar, so I was afraid I won't be able to try it.

The appearance was great, and the aroma was coming alive. It was served in a pint glass, which we all know is not always the best type to get a waft of aroma. It smelled fresh, and hops was showing off somewhat.

The taste was, for me, a bit of the more surprising part than anything else. I can taste a lot of malts coming through, which made it more "sweet," but there was also hint of bitterness. For me, it was very drinkable as it was a bit more on the malty side. 8% ABV? I didn't realize that until I came on here to review.

Overall, I think it's a great beer to drink. I had few red ales recently, and I think this one is the best one of the bunch.
