look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Best by date of 5/2/14.
Appearance: Pours a deep amber red with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three fingers of off white head that slowly settle into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.
Smell: A toasty and fairly earthy red aroma with a solid balance of sweet caramel malt and juicy hops. Toasted malts with hints of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, yeast, nut, and cracker. Solid hop balance with a good presence of earthy, floral, and citrus hops. Scent of wet grassy hops and pine resin spice. Citrus hop hints of orange peel, lemons, grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple. A very solid balanced aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma implies, a toasty and juicy red taste with a good balance of juicy hops and caramel malt. Toasted malt with bready notes of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, yeast, cracker, and nuts. Big mix of floral, earthy, and citrus hops. Earthy notes of grass and some spicy pine resin. Citrus hop notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and pineapple. Hops are nicely bitter and chewy. A very solid taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, chewy, and spicy with a drying finish.
Overall: A very solid take on a red ale. Bold with both the juicy hops and caramel malt. Its what you expect for the style.
