3.65/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22oz bomber poured into a snifter from the fridge. Batch number 160.

A- Pours a cloudy red with a small amount of white head that quickly faded to the sides of the glass.

S- The smell gives off some nice citrus hop aroma and some overall sweetness. Not much else here.

T- Nice citrus hop presence in the taste which really dominates the whole profile. I don't get much of a maltiness which I though I would.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, hoppy and bitter, easy drinker for 9% ABV.

Though I'm not totally attuned to the red ale profile, I expected more malt out of this. The hop dominates the taste for sure. A nice offering from Pipeworks but lower on the food chain when thinking of the other fantastic beers I've had from them.
