look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Pours a dark red brown under two fingers of tan cream densely packed head with incredible retention and sloppy French Mastiff drools of lacing.
S - Heavy piney hops and strawberry jam.
T - All hops in the first touch but evens out nicely when the citrus hops and orange peel bitterness is joined by raspberry, cranberry and nutty biscuit.
M - Oily full body, low to medium carbonation. Just the right carriage for the flavours within.
O - Fantastic hoppy red ale. Very encouraging for the brewery and I'll be looking for more fresh stuff in the future.

3.86/5 rDev -2.5%

Appearance-poured from a bottle into a brandy glass, dark ruby read sparkling with a half a finger of white head that dissipated rather quickly.
Aroma- sweet traces of maple syrup and jolly rancher fruit candy. With an all too familiar tropical hop aroma. I smell this in a lot of beers I like. Slight traces of chocolate or carob.
taste- wow rather smooth i would say that this beer is the closest i have ever tasted to a cherry tootsie pop. honestly its not sticky sweet but has almost a cordial type taste to it. the hops take on a medicinal ( but not unpleasant note think jagermeister)). I know this description wouldn't sell it for me but it is a very good tasting beer.
Mouthfeel- medium to dry, it could be a very fast drinking beer because i perceive a slightly lower level of carbonation. There is a slight alcohol warmth as well.
Overall- it s a very unique beer, I think calling it a west coast red under sells it. This beer taste like it has some depth or age to it. The on the bottle description is more accurate " its malty with out being too sweet and hoppy without being too bitter" paraphrased. I would gladly grab another! I would pair it with a pork tenderloin that had some sort of fruit compote garnish, thanksgiving turkey ( as a sub for cranberries), or after getting a flat top in the old barbershop (that's when i would always have a tootsie pop)
