Pours a nice tawny copper color with a two-fingered light beige head that lasts for a good half minute. Decent lacing. Aroma is predominantly piney and citrusy hops, but you can sense a underlying caramelly malt backbone to the ale. The malt comes through in the flavor with some caramel sweetness, and is complemented nicely with a decent bite from the hops. A faint bit of berry at the tail end of the sip. A moderately dry finish. Maybe a bit overcarbonated, but I'm not put off by it. I find it hard sometimes to get really get into red ales, but this one's really good provided you're a fan of the hop. I've had it on-draught as well and the carbonation seems to be at a better level than that of the bottle.
