3.89/5 rDev +11.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured from a bottle into a Guiness glass
A: Beautiful amber/red color. This is what a red ale should look like. Off white head that didn't remain for very long. Minimal lacing.
S: Not picking up a whole lot here. Definitely some citrus components of hops. A little roasted malt as well.
T: All hops at the beginning. Very bitter, then it subsides. Again, I get some citrus notes right off the bat. The hop flavor quickly moves into a very mellow malt flavor. Interesting, especially for this style.
M: Smooth, maybe a tad bit too carbonated. Still, very drinkable.
O: I'm a big fan of sweet, malty red ales. I know this one has "Hoppy" in the title, but I bought a case since it was on sale for 20 bucks. It is very interesting for the style. I'm glad I bought the case, but I don't think I'd buy another whole case.

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.
Serving type: on-tap

3.45/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish. Overall this was decent and a little better than average as far as Ambers go.
