look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Served on tap at the base lodge at big mtn(not whitefish mtn)
A: pours a dark blood orange with maybe an angel's touch of amber. Very pale white lacing settling around the rim. Transparent orange
S: aromas of sweet citrus fruit-pineapple and grapefruit mixed in as well. Herbal hops very noticeable with faint scents of toasted malt.
T: Citrus bomb of hops on the initial taste. Big hoppiness, i'd be interested to know the IPU's on this one. Nice backbone of toasted malt and caramel flavors. This is my definition of a large beer in attitude. Pleasant bitterness
M: oily texture left behind with a nice aftertaste to complement it. Finish is hop dry
O: in my eyes this is a red ale and for a red ale its exceptional. It has the strong hop profile to complement the lingering caramel malt. Its between this and lakefront fixed gear for my fav reds. Thx
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz glass into a pint glass over the weekend. Best by 7/10/14, so a couple days past. Oh well.
Looks good, amber with a yellow tint, 1 inch head somewhere between creamy and foamy (croamy?) Very good lacing. Not a lot of carbonation here.
Not getting anything on the nose. Maybe the old snout is off today.
Taste I'm getting is very subtle across the board. And improves toward the back end of the drink. A malt sweetness, with a faint but obvious hop bite (if that makes any sense) Could be affected by being at the end of its best by date.
Mouth was medium, neither soft or dry
Overall, not my favorite beer from one of the better breweries. But still a decent drink.
