New Jersey

3.7/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Yields close to two fingers of tan foam, dense yet dimples quickly and then dissipates before holding a nice coating across the surface, still mostly smaller bubbles, the lacing has very good stick and forms broad strokes across the glass sides. The liquid has a rusty red to brown hue, more yellow-orange at the bottom and rims, bright and clear, the bubbles are very widely dispersed and move slowly. Big malty nose of caramel, toffee and butterscotch as well as honey and pine sap moving onto dates, figs and dried apricots, there’s some roast under it all but hard to find a strong hops presence. Full-bodied with a softer, creamy texture even as the carbonation brings a pleasing prickle to it. More bread and scone like notes here, minerally and earthy but no ignoring the caramel, toffee, cocoa and molasses. Has enough leafiness here to create added IPA feel. Still, malts rule the roost and the only real bite is a dry residue long after you swallow. Interesting and flavorful, however, I get kind of fatigued by sipping it.

4.06/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a reddish/amber in color with a nice white head excellent retention.

Smell: Bready malts, earthy, woodsy hops with hints of dried leaves.

Taste: A very flavorful blend of caramel, pine, green tea, bitters, mild citrus and fresh flowery/grassy/leafy hop profile. Malt foundation, Hop bitterness nice blend.

Mouthfeel: Rich, medium bodied beer with good bite and drying finish.

Overall: This American red / IPA hybrid works well, reminds me of a Stone AB Jnr. One for my list of favorites need some more…

3.81/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear reddish brown with almost two fingers of off-white head that lingers for quite some time and leaves nice lacing behind. The nose is mildly hoppy, but more malty and bready to be truthful. This offering has a good healthy body with a solid caramel malt flavor. The finish is semi-dry.

This is more of a traditional red and less the red/IPA hybrid that is popular with craft brewers as of late.
