I have a 22 ounce bottle which was purchased at the brewery itself. I hope unlike the Hop O Matic that I don't have a bottle half-full of sediment. On to the beer:

Extra Red indeed. It's so dark in red that it looks almost brown. The head is a half-inch thick, and....oh no....I have a pint poured from the 22 ounce bottle and I have a few traces of sediment. However, it's not the chunkfest I experienced from Hop O Matic. A few smells and I forget that piecemeal problem. The aroma is very malty, similar to an Oktoberfest. There are also good hop notes of citrus and grass, assuring its American identity. Very pleasant to smell.

Tasty too. Sweet and modestly hoppy. There's much toffee, caramel, and toasted malts in this red ale. On the other side is vague citrus, sweet grapefruit, and a kiss of pineapple. One thing it isn't lacking is flavor, as it's there. It's a medium bodied beer with gentle carbonation.

Good hoppiness, even bigger maltiness. If choosing sides, Extra Red I suspect would wow the maltmouths more than the hopheads, as the malt is worked very well.
