750ml bottle drank from my sierra nevada hop tulip glass. bottled in march of this year.
A- this one pours out a translucent red colored body with rusty highlights. on top sits a full two fingers of khaki colored head. the head takes its time falling, and leaves behind small rings of lacing.
S- after my initial whiff, it becomes apparent that this is going to be all about the hops as the name indicates. lots of herbal, pine, grapefruit, and earthy notes. after that some malt moves in. toasted bread, caramel, and a touch of toffee. i think i can make out a little of the alcohol.
T- the taste starts out with toasted bread and toffee malts. some caramel sneaks in and adds a sweet backbone. after that its on to the hops. grapefruit are the most prevalent. theres definitely some pine in here too, along with a little bit of spiciness, orange zest, and earthy notes.
M- the body is a solid medium. the carbonation is as well. very little warming from the alcohol.
O- when im in the mood for a hoppy red that isnt hope head red, this would be a solid choice. ill check this out again next year. solid example of nearly a red IPA.

Bottled on 9/26/13.
Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earth forward aromas and flavors.
