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.

Draft pint at Map Room.
Dense, rich and creamy foam, murky reddish body, long lasting head retention.
Dried apricot and sweet malt aroma, malt dominates.
Dry bitterness atop a significantly burly malt body, with a mild undercurrent of citric hoppy fruitiness. Some earthy spice as well. Smooth and medium bodied with a significant malty heft to it. Overall pretty good, interesting to see this show up here.
