4/5 rDev +5.8%
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!

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.
