A - Poured a dark red/russet color much darker than expected with a thin off-white head barely covering. After checking its clarity noticed many bits of debris from the bottle conditioning that I wouldn't describe as haze. Also noticed the bottle was filled a little lower than most. Left a nice foam cling down the glass till the last drop.
S - Some woody and nutty notes with a great deal of nice malty caramel smells. Noticeable pine hop scents blend in nice to smell very balanced.
T - Here I truly enjoy the great flavor of the hop, not just its bitter properties but the offset it brings to its toasty, slightly burnt malt backbone. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness and spicy alcohol kiss.
M - This beer is medium to heavy in body with light carbonation .
O - Not exactly what I expected from a red ale but enjoyed its use of hops.
