3.33/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a, well, red color. Deep and clear with a frothy head.

Smells roasty with a twinge of hop bitterness. Lots of malt character.

Taste comes a lot from the hops with a backbone of sweet roasted malt. Very nicely balanced with the scale tilted slightly more towards the hop bitterness side of the spectrum.

Mouthfeel is dominated by the thick maltiness with a late bitter piney aftertaste from hops. It is heavy, but at 7.5% it isn't really a chugging beer.

Overall this is a great go-to sipping beer. It's big, strong, and not really flawed. Problem is, there are 5000 other beers just like it, and this one had nothing in it that really stood out and was memorable. So all in all, I'd call this a good beer. But just good.

3.69/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Picked up a single from Total Wine in late April for $1.29.

Beer poured a murky red with a little off white head that is leaving no lacing.

Nose is malty with a hint of citrus.

Taste is caramel malts, apples and citrus. Pretty well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of flat.

Overall not a bad beer, Unfortunately with no bottling date that i could find i suspect i have an old bottle. Could be better fresher.

3.94/5  rDev +11%
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.
