Brilliant garnet, hoppy nose balanced by rich malts. Citrus and pine. Big malt support.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Deep rich copper/amber with light tan head and medium fine lacing

S-Citrusy, tropical hops predominate, grapefruit and pineapple.

T-Dominated by bitter hops with a hint of roast malt, very dry and crisp

M-Lighter bodied and low carbonation

O-Great hop aroma, could be a bit more malt sweetness for an amber/red ale.

Pours with an enormous tan head and little body. Reddish amber body, but I've seen IPA's this color.
NIce aroma. Fresh hops. NIce mix of citrus west coast, but also a blending of something a little more earthy - maybe it's a bit of grain with a toasty quality. Soft malt in background.
Flavor is more blended in approach with a solid hop presence but also holding a well heeled malt character. Strong, firm and tasty bitterness on the finish.
Soft and fully moderate body.
Solid. Very solid.
thanks Chuck
