Had this at the brewery two weeks ago. This review is from notes.
Pours a dark, ruby red with bright red edges to the glass. A creamy, off-white head lasts forever, leaving many trails of lace behind. Huge, wafting lemony, grapefruit hop notes mix with a much meeker doughy, nutty malt character in the nose. The taste is a lush one two punch of citrusy, piney, resinous hop flavors. The huge hoppiness is completely held in toe by a great toasty, caramel malt base. The balance is flawless. medium bodied mouthfeel with a light to moderate carbonation.
This is an incredible red ale. Hugely hoppy with tons of complex hop flavors. Big maltiness that never gets too much in the way. This is a must try from this legendary brewery.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains citrus, caramelized malts and floral hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with strong but not over-powering burst of hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent beer to pound down for a while.
