The beer poured a very nice, clear, but deep red with an oatmeal-ish color head that was very well retained and left some nice lacing.
The beer had a very strong hop aroma to it, which I was not really expecting given the style, but nonetheless, it was pleasant and not to extreme, with just a little hint of malty sweetness.
The taste of the beer is really good, but again, I thought it to be a bit too hoppy for the style, but it was not so overpowering that it distracted me from the overall quality of the taste of the beer. Initially, I got a very citrus hop flavor that did make way for some of the malty goodness to show through.
The beer had a medium body to it that had a nice amount of carbonation to it. The beer was creamy, a bit sticky and finishes with a nice dry balanced taste. Overall, high quality from this brewer and the next time that my wife is in Indiana, I will have her pick more up.
