look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass. 100th beer review, this is special for me.

A - Tight bubbles hold a big rocky tan head. Nice red tint on a brilliant deep amber beer. Left me with a few streaks of lacing.

S - Layers of toasty malt all over. Undertone of mild chocolate malt. Piney hops in the background. I can recognize more hops as it warms.

T - Little bits of that toasty malt last for a short while. Hops pick up the brunt of the flavor mid-pallete. I get more of spicy, earthier hop flavor. Has a bit of bitterness to it that puts this beer a little on the hoppy side. Finishes dry, crisp and refreshing.

M - Medium to medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry.

O - Great looks to this beer, great complexity to the smell. I seen a bit more malt coming in the taste but being a hop head I enjoyed the hop emphasis. Actually, the beer was balanced well for the style.This beer would be great for the patio on an early fall afternoon.

Red Ale pours a dark reddish color, with a nice lacing head. There is a nice sharp malty aroma, with good hop notes. Taste is the same, good bold malty backbone, with a nice noticeable sharp bite near the end. Nice feel, and a nice carbonation feel. Overall its a nice flavorful red.
