look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Got this cool lookin red thanks to Doodler.

A: A semi thick frothy head rises over a very clear dark reddish brown "deck-stain" like color. As the head slowly fades it leaves a nice lacing.

N: Pretty interesting nose, with some spicy fresh hops right away. Like fresh wet hops. Then some dark malts, little crystal malt. Not much else as the fresh hops really just overpower it all. I'm now wondering if I should have let this sit a bit first as the fresh hops may be too much for a red ale.

T: Taste is much easier on the hops. It starts with a slightly sweet malts. Mostly caramel/crystal, then some toasty malts. Slightly sweet brown sugar molasses like flavors, followed with some toffee. All that is followed by some lighter hop flavors. A slight bitterness with some grassy and spicy hop flavors, and a little earthy musty fresh wet hop. Slight chewy malt and hop combination hidden in there as well. A very slight bright fruit flavor as well.

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

F: Finish dries off a bit more, and comes with a slight bitter spicy hop flavor that hits more on the end. It adds more of that caramel and toasted roast, and slight porter flavors late. A lingering earthy bitterness from the hops really continue late.

Overall a really nice red ale. I'm usually not a big fan of red ales, but this really redefines what I thought of them. It has some nice malty caramel sweetness, and combined with a great hop character, despite being a little too much on the nose.
