3.3/5 rDev -1.5%
From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 6, 2014
It has a slightly hazy brown pour and decent tan head.
The malt character is indescribable. It is not sweet or nutty. It is sort of bready with a slight earthy hop note.
Medium body and fairly smooth.
The malts are forward in the taste too and the hop character for an IPA is quite muted. While this is easy to drink I do not see how it fits into either the IPA or the Red category. But maybe it does.

Pours a light khaki four-finger head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Opaque brown color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit nose, flavor is grapefruit and some caramel. Light bitter finish. Bottled 11/14/2013, not cheap at $9.75 for a 22oz bottle from Barb's Beer Emporium Concord, NH.

Poured from a bomber bottled on 8-4-13, served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, hazy, opaque, ruby coloring with some slow carbonation action in the body, and what looks like sediment throughout. Thin, surface coat of off-white head retains while you drink. Aromas of rich, roasted caramel, with hints of smoke and a backbone highlight of resinous, piney hops with a tangy citrus note. Flavors are rich and sweet forward, with some chocolate notes mixed in with the caramel and roast. Bitter and resinous hops build towards the tail end to bring some levity to all the richness, but is ultimately overpowered. You can glean some very subtle citrus notes, but not nearly as strong as in the nose. Robust, smooth, slightly creamy body, delivering a tangy, roasted, slightly bitter aftertaste. The finish has a tangy sweet linger left after the slick, smooth feel. Strong and solid, but a little cloying and oversweet.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a huge fluffy tan head that leaves much lace on the way down my glass. Smells of bread, caramel, and a hint of chocolate with enough citrus to provide some contrast. Slight sulfur and alcohol detracts but is faint enough that I can get over it. The flavor is pretty solid with a sweet caramel maltiness providing a nice base. Pine and citrus hops layered on top with a hint of chocolate and earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice red ale with a hoppy edge.
