Glass - Nonic

A - An amber colored brew with a nice red hue to it. There's a slight haze to it, and it produced a 2-finger head that didn't hold very long. I got a spot or two left on my glass, but no lacing.

S - Apricot, cherry, date, flowers, grapefruit rind, brown sugar, biscuit and pine.

T - I pick up caramel upfront, quickly following is lemon citrus and pine like hop oils. Biscuit like malts come in mid to finish. It finishes with bready, biscuit, brown sugar like malt flavors, low-moderate bitterness for an IPA, floral notes, and a touch of dryness.

M - Creamy, thick and full bodied with lite crispness.

O - This beer is verging on the sweet side, which I don't like, but it does offer a balanced flavor profile that's pretty tasty to me. I could definitely drink a couple of these in one sitting before retiring to something else, and I also think this beer could easily be a Red Ale instead of an IPA. It's just not that bitter, and it really does taste, look, and smell more like a Red.

Overall I like this beer, and I can see myself buying it again. Cheers!
