3.53/5  rDev -13.1%

Deep Red, maroon pour with little to no head. Smell was of nice fruity hops, and I believe I'm picking up the same fruity yeast smell as in their Wilson's ESB perhaps. Taste was fruity, sweet and nicely hopped and bittered with a creaminess about it as well. Nice mild bitter lingering flavor. I really like this one.

Had this one on tap yesterday.
Pours a deep red. Not much head here, barely 1 finger.
Smell is a nice hoppy floral with some maltiness.
Taste is a light roasty with a subtle hop bite.
Mouthfeel is ok, maybe a little less gas would help.
Drinkability: Very good. I could drink several of these.

A standout regular at the draught house. One of my top reds.

This is one of my favorites at the draught house.
It pours a deep red to dark color
It has a unique bitterness to it. the hopps are they but subtle.
Has a nice head on it.
This beer will sneak up on you and its very drinkable.
one of my normal orders when I go.
If they have it get it quick because it does not last long

A - this is one of the best looking beers I've seen. The deep red color with the chalk white head is truly beautiful.

S - American citric hop character. West coast aromas.

T - biscuity bready malts nicely accentuate the citric hops. I love the malt character here, even though I'd consider it a fairly hoppy beer.

M/D - insanely drinkable. I could drink 4 or 5 with ease. Medium mouthfeel.

Bought a six pack from local store, blindly. Never even heard of this brewery. I've only had a few red ales so I thought I would try something new. Poured into a glass, its color is light red with white medium head. I found it to be biscuity with some fruits though slightly bitter. What a surprise.
