Quite good by red ale standards. An odd hybrid of the rye ale style and the IPA, this beer has a full-bodied hop structure that is not for those who don't enjoy IPAs. A pungent, piney hop structure is balanced out by a gamey smoked meat flavor and prunes.
Has a dense, red caramel color with similar scents and a decent carbonation, a 1/2 finger head, and moderate retention. Some caramel, maple cubes and a nice dry rye maltiness comes through, underneath the strong herbal notes of the hop structure.
Finishes moderately well at 6.8% ABV, but, although unique and a solid offering, not as omnipresent as I expected.
