Somehow put off reviewing this beer until the last one in the fridge is staring me down.
Here goes... poured a 12 oz. into a tulip glass.
Deep saturated amber color with auburn crimson highlights. A dense head of foam that rises above the rim in a convex dome, sturdy and not wavering. As it settles, there's a copious amount of lace in the glass. Bright clarity, not much carbonation to see.
Earthy vegetal hop aroma, some sweet crystal malt and marmalade sweetness.
Floral bitter piney notes, light apricot sweetness, lingering earthy hop bitterness. Fairly dry with a noticeable abv. Not as smooth or flavorful as Cane & Ebel. Its sort of easy to get distracted from, a good beer but ultimately not all that compelling in the end.

This big beer is on the darkest side of the spectrum, well beyond amber at a dark brownish red, bright despite its darkness but only transparent because of its complete clarity. The chunky tan head manages a full finger and settles there, and patching sticks to the glass as it follows the fluid down.
This is an aromatic red, and it makes one wonder why it has to be such a middle-of-the-road style. This beer has far more character than its many pedestrian counterparts; not only is it hoppier, it also has a stronger malts presence and just a big bouquet overall. Pine gives way to orange peel and lots of it, bitter and zesty. Heady and resinous, it achieves balance in a big caramel sweetness, lots of toast and bread crust that follow alongside it almost from the beginning.
The taste continues exactly the same pattern but switching the order, malts hitting the tongue first and hops coming alongside. It's just as big but balanced, so much flavor in this beer. Pine, orange zest, some grapefruit, and a bit more from leaf and lemon notes hit the tongue. The same balance is kept as lots of caramel and toffee add sweetness, toasted breads and crust adding depth. Every single sip gives a big dose of both hops and malt.
Big crispness hits the medium-full body up front and continues through as it goes creamy smooth on the tongue.
