Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall Summit pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish amber red with a lot of bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: An earthy and juicy balanced aroma with hints of citrus and piney hops and sweet caramel. Citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple, and tangerine. Earthy and floral hops with hints of pine resin and grass. Solid malt presence with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A pretty solid red aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hopped up Red taste with notes of citrus, pine, and caramel. Upfront citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, tangerine, and pineapple. Floral and earthy hop presence with notes of pine resin and grass. Good malt backing with notes of caramel, toffee, cracker, biscuit, and yeast. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, crisp, smooth, and fairly drying.

Overall: A pretty solid hopped up Red Ale. Considerably more hop punch than the previous version of this Red but still has a solid caramel malt balance.
