Small head but it leaves an excellent blanket of lace. The color is dark amber with lots of haze.

Upfront I get evergreen smelling hop. There's a bit of toasted malt in the background.

Toasty and very dry malt. Thick dark brown toast just shy of being burnt. Strong bitter hop kick--straight out bitterness without other "notes". Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Nearly astringent.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a three-finger cream/beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine/resin nose and flavor is pine hops and caramel, light bitter aftertaste, higher ABV is hidden. $7.20 for a 220z bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

Pours hazed lobstah red.

The smell is hoppy with citric/tropical fruits and pine. Plenty of "red" caramel-ish malt backs it up.

The taste is of sweet toffee/caramel with mild toasted bread. Musty/citric/piney hops weave in and out. It has a strong malty backbone with balancing hops in the finish. Alcohol is nicely incorporated with just a hint of pepper. Some residual sweetness lingers on the lips.

It hits full-bodied, without being thick. It has medium carbonation.

This is a wicked good beeah! Hoppy, malty, tasty - great smell! Too bad it doesn't come in a six pack. Very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable!
