Solid consistent head all the way to the end-excellent lacing. Dark mahogany. Nice ripe tropical hop aromas balanced well with a hint of toffee malt. Smooth with evident bitterness that doesn't dominate. Not much to dislike here. Perhaps a little astringent on the finish but it's all good. Nice beer worth revisiting.

I wanted to expand my experience to red ales so I checked BA and this one had a good rating so I bought it. This is a great full bodied Ale that could easily become a favorite. It has just enough hoppyness and not to much, the finish is very smooth. The enjoyment is increased if you get your nose in it as you drink. What a great beer to share with friends that have never heard of it!
