$9.99 for a four-pack at La Bodega in Riverside, CA, July 2008. Served in an English Imperial Pint at cellar temperature.
Pours a pretty red-amber with a small but nice head atop (quite large at first pour, but quickly subsides).
Aroma of a rich malt breadiness, maybe some rye character. Hops are there, but not strong like in west coast DIPAs.
Flavor is a strong malt base with a gentle mellow hoppiness (compared ot the style). reminds me of some of the stronger red ales, more than the DIPAs I have had.
Nice creamy mouthfeel, an alcoholic finish takes a bit away.
Overall I like it, but it's not what I am used to for the style. Not as bold and rich as I expect. More delicate, and in some ways, more interesting because of it.

A: poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, red brown colored with a large foamy offwhite head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear
S: heavy on hops, earth, pine, citrus , grapefruit, breast malt sweetness, tangy and mouth watering
T: pine bitterness up front, bitter at first with a lemon quality, sweetens to honey and slight raisin flavors, hint of heavy alcohols and esters
M: medium to full with good carbonation, slight alcohol presence
O: nice balance of bitter mixed with quite sweet maltiness
