4/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a Monumental Insurance, short, snub glass.

A: Poured infinitely cloudy, somewhat on the blood-red side, and without much of a head, but so, so much lacing left behind.

S: Nice deep, rich, red velvet cake batter-esque scent. Sorta reminded me of Port "Shark Attack."

T: Definitely rye based due to the bitterness, but the hops broke that down somewhat. I'd say it's about 70/30 in favor of the rye.

M: The bitterness was the same type one might find biting into a WASA cracker. The carbonation was pretty much in the standard IPA range.

O: This was only my second Carson's brew and it was a really nice one!

3.5/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clean, deep red-amber, with a very limited amount of carbonation. Lacing is also quite minimal on this pouring.

Nose is caramel maltiness and a snap of lovely floral hops. A good start, for sure.

Taste is similar -- a fine melding of a session-worthy, toasty amber or red malts ale with an abundance of citrus and floral hops.Very solid, enjoyable, and worthwhile, as everything from Carson's has been so far.
