12 oz bottle gifted from BostonRyan. Thanks! Unsure of the bottling date, he tells me it's pretty fresh though. I think maybe December? Poured into a 12 oz Bell's Tulip glass.
A: Dark red amber clear body with 2 finger cream white head with good retention and lacing.
S: Surprisingly, very sweet with malt and fruity hops, strawberries with some beets, cherries, orange, mango, a little grassy pine notes but fruit dominates the nose on this one.
T: Immediate bready taste with a sharp hop bite following quickly. Bitter throughout with a lingering on the tongue. Not really following the nose much, but a little sweetness on the back end can be picked out.
M: Average body, average carbonation, dry when it should be.
O: This is a hopped-up red ale. It accomplishes what it set out to do. Fans of bitterness and red ales will love this. Me... I prefer my amber/red ales smooth, easy drinking, not hard to throw back a 6-pack. I'm not sure that a super-hopped red ale is a style that I agree with. That being said, this tastes pretty good, I'd drink it again.
