How have I not reviewed this yet?
A - pours a reddish copper color with a slightly tan head, leaving some gorgeous lacing along the glass.
S - Caramel, malt sweetness, bread, floral and piney hops.
T - Basically follows the nose - good malt presence and a nice balancing bitterness. Sweetness is tempered nicely by the other elements. The floral and pine hop flavors seem to complement the malt well - more so than, say, the grapefruity Cascazilla.
M - Carbonation is fine. Good body - probably more than would be expected for this ABV.
Overall - This is a very solid beer in a style that I think has potential but frequently misses the mark. I really like hoppy reds and Hopback is a great year-round standard for the style.
