A: Poured from the bomber into a Duvel tulip. Body is a nice mahogany-amber with a small off-white head.
S: Pleasant mix of malt (toffee, caramel malt) and hops - pine and citrus, with a touch of spiciness.
T: Follows the nose, pretty much, with toffee, brown sugar and caramel malt up front, then fruit - cherry and berry - is followed by the juicy, citrusy hops. Finishes with a nice combination of sweetness and hoppiness, with lingering juicy hop bitterness on the palate.
M: Call it medium in heft, with a slightly over-active, but fine, level of carbonation. Reminds me of black cherry soda at times.
O: Very good stuff.

Pours sparkling clear dark ruby. A bone, dense head of an inch-plus sank slowly, revealing goops of shredded lacework and a thick, rocky surface coating.
Aromatics lead off with fresh piney hops, tangerine, mangoe, and sugared grapefruit.
Lush and tropical with a kiss of malt.
Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Sticky and tacky.
Ripe fruit, smashed spruce boughs, grapefruit pith, and sweet malt start the palate. An almost drying yet quite firm bitterness follows through, along with a hint of embers and earthy bark.
Finishes with lingering biterness, fresh carmelized malt, and sap-drizzeled fruit.
Very tasty and uber-fresh. The roasted malts add some depth without adding too much sweetness, and theres a good dose of hops to boot.
Big ups to WeeheavySD for the freshie!

22oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
Deep red with 2 fingers of light tan head. Good retention and clarity. Light-moderate carbonation.
Toffee, caramel. grapefruit and pine.
Toffee and caramel maltiness with hints of toast and a subtle earthiness. Notes of grapefruit and pine. Perhaps some touches of orange citrus.
Medium bodied, clean and smooth.
A decent Red Ale. I think I prefer My Bloody Valentine to this one.

Tap @ Hamilton's. Pours clear auburn with a skimpy white head. Caramel, grapefruit, and pine dominate the nose. Full, tangy grapefruit and resin hop flavor tempered nicely by the malt. The caramel thankfully does not overwhelm. Velvet mouthfeel. I just can't get enough of the hops in this one. Its so good.

4.05/5 rDev -1%
On-tap @ Blue Palms Brewhouse - served in a goblet.
Dark burgandy body, clear with faint cardinal highlights and a fat soapy finger of beige foam. Thick creamy lacing; superior retention.
Potent hop aromatics present from a foot away - tangelo, jolly rangers, passion fruit, and other citrus and tropical notes synergize in a rich bouquet.
Fruity palate entry with a floral/herbal twist. Moderate bitterness accompanies a gentle herbal quality leading into the finish which concludes with malt, candy apple, and soap.
Well carbonated, but vaguely watery. Can't help but love the ABV.
A remarkable nose wedded to a likeable flavor profile makes for an excellent if not quite exceptional drinking experience.
