4.06/5 rDev +8.6%
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…

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.

2.86/5 rDev -23.5%
Nice appearance, Mahogany-red color with a decent tan head.
I want a big hop nose in an IPA... this does not have it! I smell more caramel than hops.
Taste is, again, mostly caramel. Some hop bitterness, but not much hop flavor. Typical of many SA offerings: they brag about the hops in their beer, then deliver muddy, muted hop flavor! Unusual slightly sour note.
Wouldn't go out of my way for one of these! I'm seriously surprised by all the good reviews this is getting!
