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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives with a copper color capped by an inch of khaki foam; nice lacing action

Smell: Caramel malt balanced by grapefruit and a hint of pine

Taste: Caramel flavors put a stake in the ground but the hops quickly arrive, bringing grapefruit and pine; a bit of cinnamon spice kicks in after the swallow to add complexity

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The terrific balance between the malt and the hops really makes this one stand out; great job on a style that many brewers flub
