2-liter growler poured into a matching wicked weed snifter. The brew appears s clear burnt copper color with yellowish khaki creamy topping. As the cap fades it leaves patchy lacing on the glass.

The smell is herbal, grassy and pine-like. Some pleasant dankness and toasty toffee/biscuit malt to round things out a bit .

The taste is toasty with biscuit and bready malt that abruptly turns herbal, pine-like and dank with a resinous cling and grassiness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a solid and very hoppy/bitter red.

Pours into an impy nonic a chill hazed deep burnt orange/lighter amber shade with a frothy and sticky off white head atop.A good shot of pine resin in the nose along with caramel malts,a great mix of both components.The left coast big big hops are the big player in the flavor profile that melds into caramel and hard toffee but the hops are the showcase.This is what Ia'm lookin for as far as an old school left coast-style hoppy red,I like this alot more than the "standard" Tyranny.

on tap at beer study in chapel hill, into a snifter.

pours a dark red with a nice two inch white head. smell is VERY hoppy , but with aromas typical of a red. taste holds true with a ton of hops but not so much that it overwhelms the flavor. really enjoyable. medium bodied, medium carbonation.

overall another winning IPA from wicked weed.
