On Tap at the Brewery
A - Dark reddish/brown with an one-finger tan/beige head. The head takes a bit of time to diminish leaving long lasting streaky-white lacing down the entire glass.
S - Plenty going on here - Toasty/yeasty malt with hints of grapefruit, pine, and dark caramel. There are also some earthy notes in there that I couldn't quite put my finger on.
T - Sweet and dark caramel malt right off the bat. The taste finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness to round things off and make you want another sip. Very balanced with no one taste taking the lead.
M - Medium carbonation and body. Full flavor but this beer does not feel heavy in any way.
O - This is fast becoming one of my favorite Red Ales. Well crafted and everything is nicely balanced. And the bonus is that the brewery is about 20+ minutes away.

3.86/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
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)
