32 growler brought by my in-laws.
I poured it into a glass, it has a reddish brown body with a small head. The aroma has a light hop aroma with some malt. The taste is piney hop character to it with a balanced of malt to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a pretty tasty beer.

On tap. Festival pour. Pours a darker Amber color. Aroma is of caramel malt and some piney and slightly citrusy hops. Not as deep in malt as some other hoppy red ales? Looks and smells more like a maltier West Coast IPA. Flavor possesses the bitterness of the hops but the malt seems to be more expressive overall. Caramel and some bread crust. Grassy hops and piney hops with some citrus. Has some body. Medium bitterness. A beer I have had seemingly hundreds of times before.

32oz. can: This one pours a fairly clear amber color. There was about an inch of a frothy light tan head on it. Decent enough aroma. Grainy and pine notes. The taste is OK. A milder hop presence. Pine and grapefruit flavors. Medium malt body behind it. A decent enough beer, but somewhat generic in this category.

Father in Law brought back a growler from Maine for us to share over dinner.
Many Thanks

Very nice beer.

About a finger of light beige head tops the beer. (growler traveled so carbonation was down a touch, but overall beer stood up very well) Deep mahogany/red in color with nice deposits of lace left in the glass.

Aroma reminded me of the malt profile of Arrogant Bastard... SHould give you a nice indication. Hop aroma, sure... but the malt aromas really shined here.

FLavor was very nice and really well balanced. Big in front and back with a kick of deep almost light chocolate up front from malt, then an aggressive hop bitterness at the end.

Mouth feel was excellent. Full bodied, silky and just felt fresh if you know that I mean..

Overall, I thought this was a very solid effort and frankly, I took time to right the review to tell any reader to go try this. Good Stuff. Thanks George!
