4.13/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pour: Well, it's red alright. A deep, dark, clear burgundy red. Two and a half fingers of tan head that sticks around and laces the glass very nicely.
Aroma: Hop-forward aroma with grapefruit and some underlying tones of caramel malt.
Taste: Starts off with an acidic lemon twang with a semi-sweet caramel malt base. Classic biscuity amber middle is present but in a slightly lesser degree. A bit nutty toward the end, and then finishes up with a fairly assertive grapefruit hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Has a sort of smoothness to it, and a rather dry finish.
Drinkability/Overall: Smooth and easy drinking with lots to like about the taste. Not overly filling, but not exactly a session beer either.
Final Notes: A lovely interpretation of the style, with a kicked-up hop presence. It would be a good utility beer since it's hoppy enough for spicy foods but malty enough to go with anything else. I'll be returning for more.
Serving type: bottle
