I am reviewing this beer as an Herbal Red Ale not as a "double IPA" as it says on the label. If I reviewed it as a double IPA it would be a much lower rating.

However, as a specialty herbal ale its about as good as it gets.

It pours a beautiful, stunning ruby red with a thick, creamy head. Great lacing and great retention.

Aroma is a very nice balance of juniper, sage and light citrus/spicy hops. Very pronounced boquet that is very inviting.

Taste is a nice solid red ale (only a hint of toasted malt) with a good amount of juniper and some burnt sage. There is not much hop forwardess as the citrus notes are hidden beneath the herbal flavors. Nice hop bite in the back end but certainly not too bitter. Quite complex, delicious and very easy to drink.

Mouth feel is medium bodied, smooth and very palatable.

Overall, its one of the best herbal beers Ive ever had. Its an artisan, rustic, specialty beer that I will definitely drink again.
