Back in the day, if you wanted something that was astringently bitter, you didn't have recourse to boutique hop varieties that remained palatable even as their presence was upped to a pornographic degree. Instead, you had to have the malt accentuate the hops. And the way you did that the easiest was with an aggressive red ale.
This, my friends, joins up with Rogue's Santa's Private Reserve as the best aggressive red I ever did have. I assume (hope?) that the holiday affiliation of each is just a coincidence.
Smells/tastes like a nice mix between orange/pine hops and caramel/malt biscuits. Nice yeasty finish with bitter malt lingering on the back end.
