On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark, burnt looking red, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

It smells like burnt pine needles and pine resin, unsweetened caramel, toffee, toasted bread, and grapefruit.

This tastes excellent, a big beefy hoppy red ale. It's got a big malt backbone, some unsweetened caramel, toffee, toasted bread, with a big hop blast over top of it- very piney and leafy, resinous, and almost burnt. This is practically a black IPA in how dark and hoppy it is.

This has a very creamy and dry mouthfeel, with a pretty thick body, and a moderate level of carbonation.

This is one of the better hoppy reds I've had. Good job Alesmith.
