Pours a nice deep red color with some orange highlights and a nice, unusually tan head that leaves good lacing. Nose is quite hoppy with slight biscuity malt. Taste follows with quite a bit of hop flavor, a nice citrus hop profile with a decent malt presence, but I would have expected a bigger sweetness from and amber/red ale. Good hop bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is nice and dry, slightly thin *for the style*. Drinkability is good, if your a hophead that is. Overall, this is a very nice tasting clean, well made beer. I always debate whether or not to reem beers like this though, because to me, this is more like a red IPA (ala mars, celebration, furious, etc.) than it is like your average, stereotypical amber/red ale, although there are some amber ale characteristics in this. They clearly wanted to express the hops in this one, as stated on the label, so I gave it an honest rating, as they let me know, hey this red ale has some hops. Really though, who gives a shit what the *actual style* is if the beer tastes great, which this one does, so go get some, its good.
