3.73/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Clear copper colored body with a light tan colored head that is just sticky enough to provide a good head for the beer.
Pine resin and some floral character give a nice hop aroma that is balanced out by a strong caramel and slightly bready malt aroma.
Unfortunately this bottle is a bit old but I'm still enjoying the hop character. Piney with a decently bitter kick and some citrus character to round it out. Sweet caramel plus a good dose of maltiness put the red in this red ale.
Mouthfeel is relatively light and bubbly for 7%abv. Overall, I'm enjoying this red ale but need to grab a fresher bottle next time. Still, even at a few months old the flavor holds on well and stands out from many a boring red/amber ale.

The beer comes in a dark murky copper color.
The beer has a good bready malt and caramel sweetness. The hops are of red grapefruit, some piney hops, herbal qualities.
Well balanced, but slightly pushed back on the hops as in not being extremely hoppy. However, still a good beer with hoppy flavors and a nice malty body.
