3.63/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance 3.25: Good looking beer. Deep amber color, but wouldn't necessarily describe it as "red." Nice size head (1/4") that quickly faded, but left a white film on top.

Smell 3.25: Subdued bouquet. Faint hops, slight smell of barley.

Taste 3.75: Big change from the smell. Front is semi-sweet and slightly spicy. Middle is all barley and caramel malt, which smooths everything out. Finish is hoppy and semi-sweet, with big alkaline hops floating in the back of the palate. Aftertaste is long and has an emphasis on the spiciness and the mid-palate hoppiness. Nice.

Mouthfeel 3.75: Really spot on carbonation for this style of beer.

Overall 3.75: Certainly, this is just a few steps away from an outstanding beer. The taste is very good as is the mouthfeel and I would order round after round of these if I could find them on tap. There are a few knocks on it, but very few. This is an easy-drinking 7.5% (!) ale and if you are a fan of red ales, you will be hard-pressed to find a better one. If you are accustomed to a certain red ale that starts with a "K," this baby will blow your mind.

3.64/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle to New Belgium Globe.

A: Amber red, mostly clear, lots of tannish head and pretty good lacing.

S: Big malt backbone; a touch surprised by this considering the triple-hopped marketing, but maybe I shouldn't be. Smells like a prototypical American Amber...bready crystal, caramel, lightly toasted, flash of toffee, some spice, and a big resinous and piney from the hops.

T: Moderately bitter...caramel and spice, pine and toffee...piney & herbal hops, with some dankness in the background. Bready malt undertones are prominent.

MF: Creamy medium body; decent bitterness for an amber.

O: Could have been much better. Could have been worse. I expected more because of the packaging, and didn't restrain my expectations even though it was Bridgeport. Still, a decent brew, definitely not bad.
