Picked this up at Save-On, a great beer store in Mentor Ohio. Clear amber, copper pour with big caramel-white head and great lacing. Big spicy, hoppy nose with an earthy, caramel malt backbone. The Cascade hops are definitely the star here, but it's balanced quite well with a nice toasty caramel malt sweetness. Great earthy, herbal taste with just enough hop bitterness and malty sweetness. A very unique interpretation of the style that truly sets it apart from the standard Red. Nice almost creamy mouthfeel with a really smooth finish. Extremely drinkable for a 7% beer. This may have just taken the top spot for me in the Red beer category. Wish I would have picked up more of this.
