BA Review #825

12 oz undated bottle served in a Sam Adams lager glass. While this bottle has no date, it is from a 6-pack purchased some time ago and I estimate the age to be about 1 year. If memory serves me, this aging improved the beer overall: Despite a drop in hoppiness, the beer seems less harsh and more balanced than when fresh. Along these lines, note that this is a "triple hopped double red ale" -- It is an imperial red or Red IPA more than an Amer. amber/red as classified by BA.

Pours a hazy red-amber with a semi-durable head. The aroma is a rather hop-forward - not your grandfather's red ale. The malt is still there as a base. In addition, "herbal", "earthy" and "spicy" can be applied to the nose ... and to the taste. The taste [3.75], however, is more balanced with a substantial medium malt component nearly keeping pace with the hops in this "triple hopped" ale. Both of these linger on and on in the aftertaste. Some nice complexity in both aroma and flavor.

M: medium+ body; well-chosen, medium carbonation.

O: better and much more drinkable than remembered; some aging recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Amber red with not much head or carbonation. Very drinkable hoppy red ale. The hops and bitterness last on you tongue for quite a while. Not an everday beer at 7.5 abv, but one or two every once in a while for a nice change of pace. Very affordable at 6.99 for 6 pack in KC. Will buy again at this price point.

3.49/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: amber-red/orange in a goblet glass

S: malty and floral

T: caramel and malt with slight hops and nuts, even a little citrus

M: slightly bitter finish but a nice finish overall

O: Bought a 6er on sale for $5.99, a more than fair price for a unique beer. Interesting how 'triple hops' and 'double red' mix. I'm normally not a big fan of red ale but would definitely buy again for that price.
