Pours an amber, reddish hue, indicative of the style. Head is an inch thick and retains well, leaving average lacing.
Immediate smell is of caramel and bubblegum, with a strong lemon/orange citrus behind it. Candy-like combination of the citrus and malt is very, very pleasant on the nose.
Taste follows the aroma: caramel, brown sugar front, quickly followed by a tasty orange center. The orange is sweetened, not sour, and normally I'd prefer the latter, but here it works. Alcohol offers a bit of a harsh sweetness. Finish is bitter and a bit acrid.
Mouthfeel is harsh compared to the rest of the package, with the bitterness very strong (in a good way) for the style. Alcohol offers that warmth found in big stouts but not usually in red ales. Drinkability helped by the bitterness, hindered by the alcohol, but for a 9.5% abv beer this is incredibly easy to down. Overall a great red ale, and I'm happy to see it bottled in six packs.

2.36/5 rDev -42.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1
Appearance - cherry hues amber, nice top of manila foam, laces well.
Aroma - caramel and orange, reminds me of an aged dipa.
Taste - sweet up front, followed by a very harsh bitterness. Kind of makes me think this is infected, but there is still plenty of sweetness here. Very strange. Swallow is very bitter, dry, harsh, but with a backdrop of sweetness. Finishes warm with alcohol.
Mouthfeel - decent body, crisp.
Overall - bad flavor after the initial sweetness has me considering the drain on this one, a rarity in this house. Maybe a fresher sample would fare better, I'll keep my eyes open and re-evaluate if I get a chance.
